[edit] Tips
Information listed on vital records is given by an informant. Learn the relationship of the informant to the subject(s) of the record. The closer the relationship of the informant to the subject(s) and whether or not the informant was present at the time of the event can help determine the accuracy of the information found on the record.
If you are unable to locate vital records recorded by governmenents, search for church records of christening, marriage, death and burial. A family Bible may have been used to record births, marriages and deaths.
Privacy laws may restrict your access to some vital records. Copies of some vital records recorded in the last 100 years may be unavailable to anone except a direct relative.
Search for Vital Records in the Family History Library Catalog by using a Place Search and then choosing Vital Records. Search for Utah to locate records filed by the State and then search the name of the county to locate records kept by the county.
