Juab County Recorder. Juab County Courthouse, Nephi, Utah


What Is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

The collection consists of images to land and probate records located at the Juab County Courthouse in Nephi for the years 1847 to 1948. This collection is being published as images become available.

County officials began keeping records from the time the county was formed or shortly thereafter. Each type of record within the county was created for a different purpose, but most were created to keep track of the vital events happening in the lives of the citizens and to safeguard their legal interests as well as those of their heirs. The records are generally reliable, but may not contain complete information.

What Do I Do Next?[edit | edit source]

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Use a Probate record to identify adoptions, guardians, heirs and relatives
  • Use a probate record to approximate a death date, then find a death certificate
  • For earlier years, use the probate record to substitute for civil birth and death records
  • Use the information found in the record to find church and vital records such as birth, baptism and marriage records
  • Use the information found in the record to find immigration and land records
  • Use the information found in the record to find additional family members in censuses
  • Church Records were kept years before counties began keeping records. They are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900

I Can't Find the Person I'm Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Consult the Utah Record Finder to find other records
  • If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you find possible relatives
  • If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby town or county
  • Try different spellings of your ancestor’s name
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for these names as well
