Territorial and State Records

Although there were many censuses taken within Washington Territory, none of them included Native Americas. The Washington State Archives and regional branches of it have those schedules on microfilm. The Washington State Library’s interlibrary lending policy has led two two volumes of territorial census records on microfilm being available at the Suzzalo Library at the University of Washington.
