Not all Utah courthouse records are at the courthouse. And for most courthouses the researcher has to rely on paying for a search which may or may not result in the records they need. Knowing the structure of the Utah court system and how to access records is important in order to avoid frustration. We’ll look at what must be requested, what is available online through the courthouse website, what can be searched in person, and what is available at the National Archives, the state archive, local archives, FamilySearch and other websites.

Part Number: WXUTLANDMP_

Price: $9.95
Utah land has an interesting history that begins with Mexican ownership until 1847 and then the responsibility for land distribution was taken over by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It wasn’t until 1855 that the federal land survey began in Utah. Understanding where the records are depends on the historical time period. To better understand the land and your ancestor place, a good map of Utah is a must. We will take a look at land records historically and where they can be found. We will also look at maps through the history of Utah and what map collections can help you better understand the places your ancestor lived.

Part Number: WXCOUNTUT_

Price: $9.95
One of the first things we do as family history researchers is to track our ancestor in the federal census. This provides us with a time and place for our family. But there are other records that can also provide that information. Aside from the federal census, it’s important to be familiar with state specific censuses, directories (city as well as topical) and voter registrations. These resources provide names, relationships, addresses, occupations and other genealogically important data. We’ll look at what is available and where to find these items online and off.

Part Number: WXUTAH2_

Price: $9.95
Birth, marriage, death, and a final resting place. These are all important events in documenting an ancestor’s life. Utah officially started recording births and deaths in 1905 but some counties, and even cities, started the process much earlier. Utah is unique in regards to its marriage license history. That knowledge can assist you as you search for marriage records. What alternative sources exist for vital records when a government issued certificate is not available? Once you have documented the death of an ancestor, where do you find their final resting place? We will explore vital record recording in Utah and alternatives prior to official state recording. We will also explore other places to find information about your ancestor’s BMD event. Finally we will look at what types of cemeteries exist in Utah and where to find burial information.
