Birth and death records, divorce records, property tax records, and property assessment records are not available at the King County Recorder's Office. Click on the Quick Links below to find the right agency.

Example of new certification stamp

New Certification Stamp

The King County Recorder's Office has a new process for certifying copies of documents.

Instead of a separate embossed seal and ink stamp with signature, we now use a single ink stamp and signature. An example of this new certification stamp is at left.

This new procedure is more efficient and still meets state law. It will also help us when we implement electronic document certification in the near future.
