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.

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.

For an explanation of how to find Bible records and for helpful links see Utah Bible Records. See also United States Bible Records.

Wikipedia
Wikipedia has more about this subject: Emery County, Utah
"Emery County was established in 1880 and named in honor of George W. Emery, territorial governor of Utah, 1875-1880. Originally, the proposed name was Castle County, but it was decided that honoring the governor was more important. Emery County is the only county in Utah named in honor of a Utah state governor." [5]

The San Rafael region dates back thousands of years to include people of the Desert Archaic Culture.
Early explorers, both Spanish and American traversed the Uintah Basin from 1776 to the mid 1850’s. Notably Kit Carson was the first government explorer to the valley. Railroad engineers also came to the valley looking for a route for the Pacific Railroad.
