The Local Governmental Records Preservation Project will now be coming to the municipalities, counties and school districts within the Emery, Carbon, Grand and San Juan counties. This project will be carried out under the sponsorship of the State Archives and the Emery County Archives and in cooperation with the Southeastern Association of Governments.
The project provides an opportunity for all local government agencies to have their historical governmental records identified, preserved on microfilm, and made accessible locally. Microfilm copy of these records will be provided to each participating agency, the State Archives, and the Regional History Center in Castle Dale. All of this will be at no cost to local governments.
There records of interest are: minutes of councils and boards, city or town charter papers, resolutions and ordinances, annual reports general and fiscal), cemetery burial records (if the city operates a cemetery), and other unique local historical records.
The regional orientation meeting for this project will be held on June 9 from 9-10 a.m. The project will be described in more detail as to what will be expected and what the archives staff will be doing to help preserve the agency governmental historical records.
Directly following this meeting, the State Archives will offer a comprehensive records management training session from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Both will be held at the Emery County Commission chambers. It will be conducted by the State Archives and hosted by Emery County.
Also to be discussed at this orientation meeting is the possibility of the State Archives and Division of State History establishing a regional records repository at the Emery County Archives. We welcome all government records officers and all interested parties-history and museum organizations, genealogists, history buffs, etc.-to attend the first hour of orientation.
These records will be preserved and that they will become part of a statewide collection of local records documenting the history of the communities and local agencies of Utah.
