Where to find Clallam County Birth Records
Clallam County began collecting birth records in 1891. Recorded births from 1891-1894 are found on Microfilm in the Clallam County Courthouse, Auditor's Office. The State of Washington began collecting birth records as of 1 July 1907. Prior to that time birth records were collected by the County in which the birth occurred.
At Clallam County Genealogical Society we have copies of the following Birth Records:
- Birth Certificates Clallam Co. from 1910-1912
- Birth Certificates Clallam Co, from the 1930's-1940's
- (These records have not been added to the website due to privacy issues.)
About Midwife Birth Records
Midwife Births were abstracted from the personal diary of Nurse Pettett, who practiced in the Dungeness area of Sequim in the 1890's and early 1900's. Births are listed by date, not aphabetically. Not all information is complete, but abstracted as recorded by Nurse Pettett in her diary. A copy of her diary was donated by the descendants of Nurse Pettett. Further information on these births may be obtained from the Clallam County Courthouse or Washington Digital Archives, http://www.digitalarchives.wa.gov

Pioneer Family Index
Our collection of nearly 500 Pioneer Family files is constantly expanding. The pioneer files include information on those families who were here in Clallam County on or before 1889 when Washington achived statehood. We also have information on Early Families (those here before 1900). All files were developed by Society staff, family descendants and genealogists. The content and size varies widely but often includes primary and original documents such as vital records, letters, documents, photographs, narratives, homestead records, newspaper articles and donated research of various family researchers. /upload/files/Pioneer_Index.pdf
