Community Tree[edit | edit source]

A FamilySearch Community Tree is available for this place.


  • The Early Utah Community Trees project is the result of merging the 1850-1880, 1900, and 1920 US Census records for Utah with extracted Utah Vital Records (births 1892 to 1941, marriages 1887 to 1966, deaths and burials 1880's to 1956) with the Veterans burials from territorial time to 1966 to create families and extended lineages.
  • The Greeks in the West Community Tree project includes 5000+ Greek men who immigrated to the Western United States between 1900 and 1924 -- many to work in the mines and on the railroads of Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Nevada. This is an on-going project to document the lineage and preserve the heritage of these immigrants and their descendants. It is part of the Western Hellenic Ancestry and Museum and the Ethnic and Mining Museum of Magna. Initial work is focused on the mining communities in Carbon and Salt Lake counties of Utah.
