About the Utah State Archives
The Utah State Archives holds a vast amount of historical records that are important for Utah, as well as individuals researching family ties. The Emery County birth register is an important research tool, and these birth registers typically include the baby's name, birth date, race, gender, color, residence, parents' names and name of person who made the report. In 1898, Utah started requiring that births be reported, either by the attending physician or midwife, or by the parents. These births were reported to the county clerk until 1905, when Utah created the State Bureau of Vital Statistics, which falls under the Utah Health Department. After 1905, birth certificates were recorded with this state agency.
The Emery County birth register is one of 31 birth registers that cover Utah counties in existence during the 1890s. Utah State Archives put the Emery County birth register into an online searchable index to make searching easier. The original birth register is organized by year, but the order is by report only, not by birth date or name. The online index, however, allows individuals to search using the child's or parents' names, date of birth and gender. This will help you learn the page number where the birth appears in the physical records. These birth records are considered public record because the births happened over 100 years ago.
The Utah State Archives offers much more than birth certificates, including death records, marriage licenses, divorce and adoption records, along with collections of military, land, mining, incorporation and education records. Utah State Archives is also the home to a vast amount of government and legislation records, including territorial legislative assembly rosters from the 1800s and Utah territorial court records through statehood court records.
