Members can check out books from our separate lending library.

Our library contains genealogical information from the United States, Canada, and the world. Nearly 5,000 searchable items include over 4,362  books, and periodicals and even some microfilms, and microfiche. We have resources on immigration, the military, and religious records. Our collection continues to grow with books donated by members and other libraries.

Obituaries:  Our collection includes obituaries from the earliest newspapers to the latest publications.  In the absence of a published obituary, we also collect death or funeral notices, and newspaper accounts of deaths resulting from accidents.  We have some obituaries for Clallam County residents who died elsewhere.  Check our online index.  Go to obituaries to print an order form.

Probate Index:  Abstracts of Clallam County original probate records from 1857 to 1965.  Full probate packets are available at the courthouse.

Our Clallam County Records Section is where researchers can access obituaries, Pioneer family files, Native American census and school census records, probate Index, yearbooks, and cemetery records.

Surname Indexes:  Indexes for various organizations and events such as  the Port Angeles Reserve Jumpers, early Elk Club members, county school graduates and censuses, Puget Sound Cooperative Colony, Civilian Conservation Corps, Spruce Railroad Division, Naturalization and Probate Records.

Early Vital Records:  Early birth and death records from many sources prior to 1907 - newspapers, early county records, midwives’ records, etc.  After 1907, vital records were sent to the Department of Health at our state capital at Olympia, Washington.


Obituary and Naturalization indexing

Deaths:  We have plans to index death certificates from 1910-1930's.  This project will not be started until some of these previous projects are completed.
