What Is in This Collection?

The collection consists of an index and images to a single register of births and deaths from the cities of Eureka, (Juab County) and Payson, (Utah County). The book was donated by a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and likely originated from a local government entity. Most of the pages in the register are blank so the total number of names is minimal. Images are being added to the collection as they become available.

Image Visibility

Whenever possible FamilySearch makes images and indexes available for all users. However, rights to view these data are limited by contract and subject to change.

Please be aware some collections consist only of partial information indexed from the records and do not contain any images. For additional information about image restrictions see Restrictions for Viewing Images in FamilySearch Historical Record Collections.
