How to Obtain Utah Death Certificates

If you look at the history of the vital records registration in the US states, you come to know that the US states had not given the importance to the statewide registration of the vital events in the early years. It was the early nineteenth century when they took big steps to ensure the statewide registration of vital events. The state of Utah was also among such states which started statewide registration in 1905. The main records were civil registration of births, deaths, and marriages which were not properly recorded before the year 1905. There were some signs that there was a system of the town registration of the vital events in Utah but it wasn't sure that the maintenance of records is authentic or not. The town offices were responsible to look after the data collection and maintaining the vital statistics including the births, deaths and marriages. In 1905, the state made an act which asked all the counties clerks to keep the separate registers for the births and deaths. In US, as it is very much obvious that the marriages are considered as a civil matter and apart from this, marriages are also related with the religion so the marriages registration was not required in Utah State until 1887.
