Death Certificates of Finns in King County, Washington, 1892-1947


As contained in "King County, Washington, Deaths, 1891-1907" by the South King County Genealogical Society. Excerpted by Merle A. Reinikka.

The State of Washington did not require that counties record deaths until 1907. Prior to that time records (if maintained at all) were kept at the county level and were often incomplete and inconsistent. Records of deaths in King County from 1891 to 1907 survive on microfilm housed at the State Archives Regional Branch, located in the City of SeaTac in southwest King County.

The following records, abstracted by members of the South King County Genealogical Society and covering the period August 2, 1891, to May 29, 1907, have been extracted from the microfilmed records of the Seattle-King County Health Department entitled "King County Death Records." The original records may contain further information of interest to genealogists. However, due to space limitations in the publication of over 20, 000 records, the extractions listed here by the South King County Genealogical Society give only name of deceased, date of death, age, sex, place of birth, and place of death. Those individuals whose birthplace is listed as Finland are included in this compilation.

The complete death record may show, in addition, date of birth, race, marital state, residence, occupation, name and birthplace of father, maiden name and birthplace of mother, and cause of death.

The series of letter and numbers given in parentheses following each entry indicate Set, Reel Number, Page Number and Record Number of the microfilmed health records.
