History and Genealogy
for
Morgan County, Utah

Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy


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 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.

We accept transcribed data contributions of:

  • Biographies
  • Birth Records
  • Cemetery Transcriptions
  • Death Records
  • Land Deed Records
  • Marriage Records
  • Military - Veterans, Casualty Lists, etc.
  • Obituaries
  • Wills

Please
email Sandy if you have any questions or comments.

Established in 1862, Morgan County was named for Jedediah Morgan Grant, father of Heber J. Grant, who served as president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its county seat and largest city is Morgan

An early route of the Hastings Cutoff ran through the Morgan Valley and down through a narrow gorge in Weber Canyon. The Donner Party avoided going through the Morgan Valley in order to speed up their journey. However, their alternate route proved more time-consuming.

In 1855, Charles Shreeve Peterson and his family became the first white settlers to take up permanent residence in the Morgan Valley after cutting a road through Weber Canyon.
