Societies generate genealogies, biographies, histories, and indexes of local records. They may publish periodicals, lists of members and ancestors, yearbooks, or surname indexes. Utah has many societies and associations interested in genealogical research and preserving history and records of Utah. Other groups are lineage societies for descendants of pioneers, soldiers, and ethnic groups.

Finding other local societies and their records

Some counties and towns in Utah also have local historical and genealogical societies. You can find local society addresses by using directories cited in United States Societies page.

Records, publications, and biographies of members from the different groups are found in the Place Search of the Family History Library Catalog under:

Sons of the American Revolution

Some societies have published lists of members. These rosters may give genealogical and biographical information. One example for the Sons of the American Revolution is:

Ward, William R. Utah Society, Sons of the American Revolution, Roster of Members, 1895–1992. Salt Lake City, Utah: Utah Society, Sons of the American Revolution, 1992. (Family History Library book 979.2 C4uw.) This book lists the names of members and their patriot ancestors. Also, biographies are included for most members giving birth information, parents, spouse, and children.
