Family History

Castle Gate

Family History is the over-arching term that encompasses both genealogy (study of family pedigrees) and more specialized studies such as people with common surnames or who originate in one location. The Research Center contains many useful primary and secondary sources within the collections of the Utah State Archives and Utah State History.

Our staff will attempt to locate and copy records related to specific individuals, but we can only search those record series that are indexed or otherwise easily accessible. For extensive research, please visit the Research Center in person or make arrangements with an independent researcher to visit.
