Sanpete Birth Register Online

The birth register maintained by the Sanpete County Clerk from 1898-1905 is now available as a book online. These records contain birth registers recorded from 1898 through 1905. Each entry includes an assigned number, sex, color, race, date and place of birth, parent’s names and residence, attending physician , and remarks.

Beginning in 1898, physicians and midwives were required to keep record of each birth for which they assisted. In their absence, the parents were required to complete a report. They then reported quarterly to the county clerk or in the case of incorporated cities, to the local board of health and they would in turn report to the county clerk (Revised Statutes of Utah 1898, Title 57, p. 474-475).

In 1905, the state passed a law requiring each county to file a uniform certificate with the State Bureau of Vital Statistics.


Marriage Records Research Guide updated

Signing of Marriage License

Signing of Marriage License

The Research Guide to Marriage Records at the Utah State Archives has been updated. Historical background has been added to the introductory text related to how civil registration of marriage came to be in Utah, which helps explain why there are generally no government records of marriage before about 1888.

The list of record series has not been comprehensively updated, however the best way to request such records is still contacting the clerk of the county where the marriage took place for all dates.

Does the guide leave some questions unanswered? Do you have suggestions for it? Leave us a comment using this page.
