The Utah State Archives and Records Service is proud to announce that our Name Indexes site was chosen as one of the 75 Best State Websites for Genealogy by Family Tree Magazine! This is an annual list published to provide readers with the best state-specific online resources for researching their ancestors. This year’s list has been expanded to include valuable resources for researching ancestors in the District of Columbia, as well as US territories including Puerto Rico. The 2021 list ran in the Nov/Dec issue and is maintained online.

Those interested in exploring the Utah State Archives Name Index are encouraged to visit: With this one powerful search engine, visitors can search Utah Death Certificates, Utah Birth Certificates, Oaths of Office, Prisoner’s Pardon Applications, Brand Books, the Book of the Pioneers, Incorporation Files, and many more!
