Utah Vital Records Information

Utah Vital Records
In Utah, the civil registration of births, deaths, and marriages developed slowly, culminating with a statewide system of recording births and deaths beginning in 1905. Early legislative acts empowered, but did not require, certain cities to maintain a register of births and deaths. In 1898, the state legislature provided for central county records, requiring county clerks to keep separate birth and death registers. Since marriage was seen as a religious sacrament, the civil registration of marriages was not required in Utah until 1887.
For birth and death records from 1 January 1905 and marriage records from 1 January 1978, write:
Utah Bureau of Vital Records, 288 North 1460 West, Salt Lake City, UT 84114-2855

For earlier records, write to the clerk of the county in question.
