Court Record Guides Updated

Gina Strack Research Guides

What began as an effort to update some county probate court information, eventually overhauled two research guides:

  • Probate Records – List of records updated and separated by originating courts with concurrent jurisdiction (during the territorial period).
  • Adoption Records – Expanded to include a list of records based on descriptions and appropriate dates (more than 100 years ago), also linked Utah Code citation changes from recent amendments.


  • Utah Court System – Formatted according to current style guide. This is a very good guide for understanding how the different levels of the court system have evolved over time with useful legal references.
  • Divorces – Updated probate court records that may have been missed.
