Contributions to the Resarch Wiki represent my best efforts to verify information. I may also contribute based on expertise gained from being an archivist at the Utah State Archives, but such contributions will not represent all knowledge on any relelvant topic, nor should opinions or errors reflect on the State Archives as an organization.
Please feel free to contact me if I can help explain records availability at the Utah State Archives, especially online, one of my primary responsibilities.
My ancestors are for the most part immigrants to the United States in the 19th century, though one line does go back to settlement in New England in the 1600s. Origins include several areas of England, plus Scotland and Wales, and Germany and German-speaking peoples in South Russia.
