Scope and Content

The Beaver County recorder created a set of four record books which are labeled 'Notices of Location.' Mining notices of location provide information about the discovery and location of a mining claim, the names of locators, and dates for discovery and filing. The Beaver County recorder recorded notices of location for claims in a dozen Beaver County mining districts as well as claims in unorganized territory. He recorded the greatest number of location notices for claims in the Star and Granite Districts. Even though these books are generally notices of location for mining claims, they also contain a hodgepodge of other records, including not only records created by the recorder's office, but also records of the county clerk and Beaver County courts.
