The Research Guide to Marriage Records at the Utah State Archives has been updated. Historical background has been added to the introductory text related to how civil registration of marriage came to be in Utah, which helps explain why there are generally no government records of marriage before about 1888.

The list of record series has not been comprehensively updated, however the best way to request such records is still contacting the clerk of the county where the marriage took place for all dates.

Does the guide leave some questions unanswered? Do you have suggestions for it? Leave us a comment using this page.
