Utah Digital Archives

Often when we think of Utah and genealogy we first think of the Mormon records in Salt Lake City. However, the state of Utah has a series of digital collections from the Division of Archives and Records Service. Three digital collection in particular caught my eye: Prisoners' pardon application case files, 1892-1949; Sanpete County Clerk Death Register, 1898-1904 and Death certificates, 1904-1956. Once you search and find the person you can view the actual document on line. There are other records available here also such as the Utah Governor records; Brand Books from 1849-1930 and Fifth District Court Cases - Beaver County, 1986 - 1998 . Here's the link for another gem of free to search and free to access on line genealogy information.
