Search the new online catalog

As part of the Utah State Collections Consortium, the Utah State Archives has upgraded to the newest version of the Symphony integrated library system from SirsiDynix. An online catalog is just one of the ways to search for information on the permanent, historic holdings of the Utah State Archives. As we learn more about the new system, we will work to make sure it is easy to use and works well for archival collections.

The Utah State Collections Consortium consists of the Utah State Archives, Utah State History, Utah State Library, Utah State Law Library, Division of Administrative Rules and Utah Department of Transportation Library.


Recent Naturalization Records

Naturalization records after 1906 are available from the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services, as explained in our Research Guide on Naturalization.

The records discussed as part of the Genealogy Program, however, end in 1956. If you were naturalized in the time since, you may be able to request a Replacement Naturalization/Citizenship Document from BCIS. Submit Form N-565 which is available online at www.uscis.gov/n-565.


Post-1906 Naturalization records moving to U.S. National Archives

Naturalization records maintained by the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services since 1906 will be transferred from the Department of Homeland Security to the National Archives and Records Administration beginning in 2010. Public access will be available if the immigrant has passed away or turned 100 years old. Previously, these files were available through a laborious Freedom of Information Act request as explained in our guide to Naturalization and Citizenship Records.

Utah Academic Library Consortium video

A new promotional video for the Utah Academic Library Consortium has been posted online and is being used to get the word out about its benefits and services to the state. The Utah State Archives contributed images for the segment on the Mountain West Digital Library and one of the interviewees talks about the Animal Brand books available online.


Finding Recent Court Cases

The Utah State Law Library blog posted some helpful information on finding Utah court cases from about the last ten years:

Use the Utah State Courts’ web site to locate both Court of Appeals and Supreme Court opinions. Court of Appeals opinions are available from 1997 to present and Supreme Court opinions are available from September of 1996. Use the search box to do a keyword search, or browse opinions by name or by year of opinion.

Indexes, case files and registers that are much older are available for many Utah district courts, consult the District Court Records Guide to determine what is accessible at the Archives based on the county where the case was filed.
