History and Genealogy
Established in 1856, the many beavers in the area gave this
county its name.
While explorers first visited present-day Beaver County in the 1776 Dominguez-Escalante Expedition, the county was created by the Utah territorial legislature when Latter-day Saint settlers founded the city of Beaver, Utah in 1856.
Beaver, Utah is the County Seat and largest city.

Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to transcribe and post genealogical source data so that family researchers can track their ancestors through time, throughout the country.
This county site needs a dedicated host to make this site the best that it can be!
If you think that you may be interested in volunteering to host a county or state or to join our Transcriptions Team, please view our
Volunteer Information page and contact Nancy.
(A desire to transcribe data and the know-how to make a basic webpage is required)
Join our mailing lists for researchers looking to connect and share information. You never know who you might meet and what family data they may share with you -- it could start a whole new branch of the family! We also use the mailing lists to announce our website updates.
Remember to look around at the other states we have online and consider donating your source information -- every little bit helps someone.
