These newspapers contain news about births, marriages, and deaths in Seattle, as well as many of the surrounding communities.

This offer is to search for one obituary in one of the two listed newspapers. The search will cover two weeks worth of issues (14 published issues). When ordering, please provide the exact death date and which one of the two newspapers you would like me to search.

Ordering instructions from seagenes

  • Please note that since 1985, issues of the Seattle Times have been available online, and since it’s paper-based demise in 2009, the P-I is also online.
  • Please note, also, that there may be gaps in coverage over the years due to
    1. loss of the actual newspapers before microfilming became common, or
    2. some information may not be available due to changes in the newspaper’s publishing policies.
