May Question of the Month – an irregular series

How can I get a copy of the Seattle newspaper birth announcements for babies born Sept 1st 1967?

With your Seattle Public Library card you have unlimited free remote access to our subscription database the Seattle Times Historical Archives. (the link will take you to a page where you will need to input your library card.)  These are the searchable images of the entire digitized newspaper for 1900-1984! This file is made available courtesy of a generous gift of the Seattle Public Library Foundation.

The “Seattle Times Historical Archives” is located on our website: http://www.spl.org/library-collection/articles-and-research/databases-a-z 

During the 1960’s there was a “born yesterday” column in the following day’s paper. We’ve scanned the column for September 2, 1967 and attached it to this answer. If the information you need is not included, you can check other dates by using the links we’ve supplied!
