The Utah State Archives has the birth register from Uintah County for the years 1898-1905 because 1898 is the year that Utah began requiring that births be registered with the county clerk. This could have been done by the attending physician, midwife, or by the parents if no one attended the birth. In 1905, Utah changed the law and required that birth certificates be filed with the State Bureau of Vital Statistics, under the Utah Department of Health. In Utah, however, birth certificates less than 100 years old are not considered public record.
In addition to early birth records, the Utah State Archives also stores important historical records, such as divorce and marriage certificates, death records, adoption records, military records, land records and mining records. The Utah State Archives is also home to historical court documents and also includes resources that describe how the state government and jurisdictions were formed and changed over the years. There are criminal cases, as well as civil cases, dating back to 1851.
