Where to find Washington Birth Records
The State of Washington began collecting birth records as of 1 July 1907.  Prior to that time, birth records were collected by the counties, although not all were diligent in reporting or recording.  
You can obtain Washington state birth records as certified copies (or “certificates”) for legal purposes or noncertified informational copies for genealogical or other personal use. The three different birth record products include: birth certificate, Heirloom birth certificate, and noncertified informational copy of a birth record.  Only individuals with specific qualifying relationships to the subject of the record can receive a birth certificate or Heirloom birth certificate. Identity and proof of qualifying relationship documentation is required.
Noncertified informational copies of birth records do not get issued on the certified paper with security features. They cannot be used for legal purposes. It will contain the some of the same information as a birth certificate and a watermark stating “Cannot be used for legal purposes. Informational only.” Please check with the agency or organization requesting the record before ordering an informational copy.  Anyone can request a noncertified informational copy of a birth record. You do not need to provide proof of identity and proof of a qualified relationship to the subject of the record.  Time period "black outs" may apply, per WA State RCW.
