==== Bible Records  ====

The term "Bible records" refers to the practice of keeping family dates and events in a family Bible. This was a common practice in many European countries and carried over to America. Many of these family Bible records are still in existence and preserved by the descendants of the immigrants. In some cases these family Bibles have found their way into libraries and other repositories.

==== Churches and Religious Groups  ====
  
Churches and religious groups records are usually found in the towns rather than on the county level. However {{FHL|778834|subject-id|disp=histories of churches}} on the county level are listed in the Family History Library Catalog. Early church records, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, for Box Elder County Wards and Branches can also be found by refering to Jaussi, Laureen R., and Gloria D. Chaston. Register of Genealogical Society Call Numbers. 2 vols. Provo, Utah: Genealogy Tree, 1982. (FHL book 979.2258 A3j; fiche 6031507). These volumes contain the film numbers for many (but not all) membership and temple record films.  
+
The information given in church records depends upon the practices of each religious group. Most include the names of members, often with ages and birth places. Several give birth, christening, or blessing dates for infants. See [[Utah Church Records]] for details about various denominations.
