What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This collection consists of an index and images to birth certificates acquired from the Utah State Archives for the years 1903 to 1914. The records are arranged by year, county,and month within a numerical arrangement by box and folder number. Many of these volumes have indexes at the beginning or end. This collection is from Utah State Archives Series 81443.

In 1905 state registration of births and deaths began and was generally complied with by 1917. Registration of births prior to 1905 is irregular. No government agencies in Utah were required by law to record births before 1898. Salt Lake City and Ogden began registering births in 1890 and Park City began registering births in 1892. The information in birth records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant. For more information on how to locate birth records in Utah, read the article How to Find Utah Birth Records.
