Utah is known as the home of the Family History Library. It may be the home of your ancestors too! We've got the resources for you to dive deep into researching your Utah family. With the addition of four new webinars, the eight-class series on Utah research is now complete. The four new classes include:
- Utah Going to the Courthouse
- Utah's Melting Pot
- Utah Newspapers and Digitized Books
- Researching Mormon Women
We're working hard to give our webinar subscribers the educational classes they need to maximize their genealogical research! All of these new classes are bonus webinars in the webinar library. The webinar previews are always free.
Utah Going to the Courthouse
Not all Utah courthouse records are at the courthouse. And for most courthouses the researcher has to rely on paying for a search which may or may not result in the records they need. Knowing the structure of the Utah court system and how to access records is important in order to avoid frustration. We’ll look at what must be requested, what is available online through the courthouse website, what can be searched in person, and what is available at the National Archives, the state archive, local archives, FamilySearch and other websites.
Utah's Melting Pot
The story of Utah is the story of its diverse ethnic population. Rich records exist to trace the diverse population of Utah. Learn more about collections documenting the lives of the Chinese, Japanese, African Americans, and Native Americans. We will look at familiar resources like censuses and then we will explore specific manuscript and special collections housed in archives and libraries throughout the state.
Utah Newspapers and Digitized Books
In this webinar we look at the printed word. Newspapers provide us with the details of everyday life that is hard to find anywhere else. Digitized books span the realm of local history and biography which helps to tell the story of places and people. Where can you find Utah newspapers and digitized books? Many times you can find what you need online through digitization projects, subscription and free websites but for those time you can’t find what you need, knowing what is available and where is important.
Researching Mormon Women
Mormon women in Utah have a rich history that includes suffrage, important work outside of the home, and of course polygamy. The lives of Mormon women in Utah are documented in various archives, libraries, and museums. In this presentation learn ways to find out more about your Mormon ancestress aside from information about her in familiar sources like the census or vital records.
