Newly Processed: July 2011

The usual list of new series inventories is not particularly feasible this month. This is due mostly to the end stages of the microfiche backlog project which added or updated somewhere around 600 finding aids! Perhaps with final reports we will be able to compile a complete list in the coming months.

Another project progressing well–and which also added many new finding aids–concerns cemetery records. The Utah State Archives holds records for many municipal cemeteries throughout the state. The existing research guide is limited to series already long processed. The current project finishes a comprehensive inventory begun three years ago, and it is planned to process most if not all of the remaining series of cemetery records with burial information. Stay tuned!

Government Reorganization

For almost as long as there has been government in Utah, there has been the desire to reorganize, optimize, streamline and generally make it better. This past week, Governor Herbert announced the Advisory Council to Optimize State Government to fulfill recent legislation. The Utah State Archives holds records to several past projects of a similar nature and has made many of them available online.
