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.

Note: Historical marriage records for this county are difficult to locate and use. It appears that the original marriage registers beginning in 1887, were microfilmed in the 1950's and then destroyed. Unfortunately, the staff at the clerk's office are unable to locate the microfilm copies either (as of 2007). Researchers must resort to the applications and/or the original marriage license returns (microfilmed) to locate specific marriages. The microfilm is some what confusing to use and is mislabeled.

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.

Cemetery records often reveal birth, death, relationship, military, and religious information. The spouse and children who died young are frequently buried nearby.

More than tombstone inscriptions, cemetery records include sextons (caretakers) records and interment (burial) records, each with slightly different information. See Utah Cemeteries.

Census

The 1850 [1851], 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 U.S. federal population schedules of Weber County are available online. For tips on accessing census records online, see Utah Census. If you're having trouble finding your ancestors in national indexes, try checking local indexes. Created by experts familiar with the area's families, these indexes are often transcribed more accurately than nationwide indexes.

Note: Historical marriage records for this county are difficult to locate and use. It appears that the original marriage registers beginning in 1887, were microfilmed in the 1950's and then destroyed. Unfortunately, the staff at the clerk's office are unable to locate the microfilm copies either (as of 2007). Researchers must resort to the applications and/or the original marriage license returns (microfilmed) to locate specific marriages. The microfilm is some what confusing to use and is mislabeled.
