The Utah Digital Newspapers collection are like gold to genealogy and other historical researchers. Years ago, I was involved in the digitization of the images found on University of Utah’s Digital Newspapers site. Scanning through the old pages to confirm the accuracy of the tools and transcriptions by my teams was almost a side benefit to the enjoyment derived by reading random selections of the pages.
If you are looking for your ancestors in Utah or studying its events and history, stop by the Utah Digital Newspapers site. Set aside some time before you do though. You’ll quickly find yourself drawn in and time will slip away.
