Utah, Territorial Case Files of the U.S. District Courts are available online, click here.

Microfilm of original records at the National Archives, Washington, District of Columbia.

"The records originated in the U.S. district courts at Salt Lake City, Ogden, Provo, and Beaver, seats of the four U.S. judicial districts that existed in the territorial period. When Utah became a state in 1896, these territorial courts were dissolved , and their records were transferred to the new U.S. district court for Utah and to the circuit court (10th Circuit) in Salt Lake City. At both courts, the cases were rearranged alphabetically by the initial letter of the defendant's last name, renumbered, and bound into volumes. These volumes were unbound for the purposes of microfilming their contents, but the order of arrangement was preserved. The cases transferred to the district court are filmed first, followed by the cases transferred to the U.S. circuit court. An alphabetical index of the names of the defendants and plaintiffs is reproduced on the first roll of this publication. The index lists the individual's name, the case file number, and the microfilm roll number."--Introd.

The cases involve mostly polygamy, or cohabitation, but also include various other crimes.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
