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, www.digitalarchives.wa.gov .
