Genealogy By the States – Week 45 – Utah


I actually have several very distant cousins who made their way to Utah, many of them ending up in the Salt Lake City area.  Because they are very distant, I don’t spend much time on them these days.  But, if I did have some time, I know of two websites I would hit up immediately for some information:  FamilySearch and Utah Digital Newspapers.

For obvious reasons there are a ton of record sets on the FamilySearch website, many of them digitized.  There are death certificates from 1904 to 1956, territorial case files, a marriage index from 1887 to 1966, and even probate records.

Utah Digital Newspapers is a website that is building a repository of digitized newspapers accessible to the public for free.  They have a huge collection already and continue to add to it all the time.

I picked a few random names from my database and did some searching on both sites and found some new information.  Ahh, if only I had more time to dig!!
