Until we are able to offer web lookup of documents and free printing, we are still having to require pre-payment for copies and will mail them via USPS.  Most files prior to 1996 are on microfilm and it may take several days to fill your request for copies from the older files.

You may request copies by phone, (360) 676-6777.  When recording starts, dial the # sign, then 50029.
