History of Utah County Newspapers

Over the last ten years the Provo Daily Herald has purchased and absorbed all local community weekly newspapers and after a few years discontinued them. See Provo Daily Herald articles 5 Feb 2009 and 26 Jan 2011.


Current Utah County Newspaper:

  • Provo Daily Herald The current 'paper of record' for Utah County. Has many local obituaries, plus funeral and other notices, and births at the local hospitals.

College Newspapers

  • BYU Daily Universe Student paper, may not have genealogical information (i. e. obituaries, or similar information) but valuable for student information, names can be found of students, faculty, and others who attended or were associated with Brigham Young University. With BYU having some family history classes and a full-blown family history library within the school's Harold B. Lee Library, it is also occasionally a place for news about family history and genealogy at times although infrequently.

There is also a newspaper for Utah Valley University, but it has only existed in much more recent years probably from the time the university was known as Utah Valley State College, but likely not much before that.
