Introduction

Looking for a birth certificate might seem like the first place to start your genealogical research, but no government agencies in Utah were required by law to record birth before 1898. Though not required to do so, Salt Lake City and Ogden began registering births in 1890 and Park City began registering births in 1892. [1]

Finding birth information about an ancestor is key. Yet European settlers did not arrive in Utah until after 1847 and birth records were not required by law in Utah until 1892 or later.
