Utah Going to the Courthouse


321 views

Not all Utah courthouse records are at the courthouse. And for most courthouses the researcher has to rely on paying for a search which may or may not result in the records they need. Knowing the structure of the Utah court system and how to access records is important in order to avoid frustration. We’ll look at what must be requested, what is available online through the courthouse website, what can be searched in person, and what is available at the National Archives, the state archive, local archives, FamilySearch and other websites.
