Early Births Reported in the Newspaper

Over the years the Yakima Valley Genealogical Society created an index to genealogical information as a set of 3×5 index cards. In 2012 YVGS decided to share the index information collected for Benton County with the Tri-City Genealogical Society which serves Benton and Franklin counties. Below are the births included in this collection.

Prior to 1905 Yakima County included a substantial part of Benton County. See the collection of historical Washington state county boundaries.

YVGS collected birth entries covering approximately 1903 - 1907 from the Prosser Bulletin (PB), the Prosser Record-Bulletin (PRB), the Prosser Falls Bulletin (PFB) and the Benton County Republican (BCR). These newspapers are accessible through the Mid-Columbia Libraries. See their newspaper availability list for details.

Each entry can possibly provide the child, father and mother's names, the birth date, city and publication date. Some entries contain less information, e.g. a son born to Joe Jones in Sunnyside, PRB, 29 Oct 1903.
