Community Tree[edit | edit source]
The Early Utah Community Trees project merged the following to create families and extended lineages:
- 1850-1880, 1900, and 1920 US Census records for Utah
- Extracted Utah Vital Records (births 1892 to 1941, marriages 1887 to 1966, deaths and burials 1880's to 1956)
- Veterans burials from territorial time to 1966
- The Greeks in the West Community Tree project includes 5000+ Greek men who immigrated to the Western United States between 1900 and 1924 -- many to work in the mines and on the railroads of Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Nevada. This is an on-going project to document the lineage and preserve the heritage of these immigrants and their descendants. It is part of the Western Hellenic Ancestry and Museum and the Ethnic and Mining Museum of Magna. Initial work is focused on the mining communities in Carbon and Salt Lake counties of Utah.
