About me: Jerry E. Reed

I am also a genealogist, a
n avid photographer, and artisan bread baker.
My genealogy interest began before personal computers were a family "must have." Personal genealogy computer research has blossomed in the past 15 years. It wasn't long before someone decided that they could charge for information that should be free and in the public domain. I have always been frustrated by that. Now, thousands and thousands of pages of useful facts are coming on line daily in free-to-access digital archives located all over the world. So, I'm constantly searching for new sources of free on line material. Blog updates follow this section and all links are added to the master list below the new posts.
Updates are posted when
I discover another new source or when something I have already reviewed gets a major update.
Have fun and enjoy.
Note: if you find a link no longer works, please let me know so I can research and update it.

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.
