Resources

The types of records that follow are used for genealogy and family history. Most tell what you may learn and how to locate the records. Links to Internet sites usually go directly to Davis County, Utah Genealogy entries with names, images, or information.

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.

Biography

Cemeteries

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

It was officially created 3 March 1852, when the territorial assembly, defined the county lines. Records concerning Davis County between 1850 and 1852 are in Salt Lake County.[11]
  • During its first 50 years, Davis County grew slowly.
  • 1862 January 17: Morgan County was set off.
  • 1870 - Utah Central Rail Road. With the advent of the railroad a transition to mechanized agriculture and a surge of commerce, banking, improved roads, new water systems, and electrification of homes began.
  • 1940 - population was barely 16,000.
  • 1940-1950 -  With the establishment of Hill Air Force Base in northern Davis County, there was a surge of civilian employment after World War II. The county doubled in population.
  • 1950-1960 -  Population doubled again as part of the nationwide suburb boom that was occurring at the time.
