Important notice: The King County Archives has received an increased number of calls about third party vendors selling marriage certificates. These companies charge customers high fees to “process” or “help apply” for certificates issued by King County. For the fastest service without the high fees, we encourage customers to order certified copies only from King County government offices or the Washington State Digital Archives. If you have ordered through one of these third party companies and would like to file a consumer complaint, visit the Washington State Attorney General Consumer Protection Division.
Records we DO NOT have at the King County Archives:
- Probate records or wills
- Divorce records
- Blueprints or "as-builts" of private homes
PLEASE NOTE: The Archives currently has a turnaround of 2 weeks or less for recordings requests. If you are able to visit us in person, you are welcome to retrieve the document yourself in our microfilm research room without an appointment on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, from 9 am to 4 pm. We are closed to the public on Wednesdays.
