Vital Records
[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Reliable birth and death records in Logan date back to 1898. In that year the Utah state legislature provided for central county records and the Cache County Clerk began to keep a vital record register or ledger. This practice continued until 1905 when a state-wide registration of both births and deaths began.
  • Marriages were seen as a religious sacrament early in the history of Cache County. With the passage of the Edmund’s-Tucker Act, federal regulators outlawed polygamy, a common practice among pioneer members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). The act also mandated a territorial registration of marriages which began in 1887.
  • Settlers began to enter Cache County in 1859. Vital records from that time until civil registration of births, marriages, and deaths began may be found in alternative sources: newspapers, church records, family records, cemetery records, etc.
