History and Genealogy
Weber 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.

We regret that we do not have the time to perform personal research for anyone.


The county was formed on March 3, 1852 and named after the Weber River, which was named for John Henry Weber (1779-1859), a fur trapper and trader in the area in the mid-1820s
Its county seat and largest city is Ogden.

The county extends from high in the Wasatch Range in the east into a portion of the Great Salt Lake to the west. The Weber and Ogden rivers and their tributaries run through its valleys. The Weber County Surveyor's office divides the county into two regions, the "Lower Valley" and the "Upper Valley", divided by the ridge of the Wasatch front range running north-south through the county. The "Lower Valley" is the more populous part of the county and is adjacent to the Great Salt Lake. The "Upper Valley" is the eastern part of the county and consists mostly of the Ogden Valley, the watershed of the Ogden River.
