Scope and Content

These alphabetical indexes for mining records were created by the Uintah County Recorder to facilitate access to the Mining Records. The series provides the instrument number, name of locators or grantors, name of claim or grantee, name of district or location, kind of instrument, when filed, record book, page number and remarks. The indexes contains two sections, the direct and the indirect. The indirect or reverse section is alphabetical by the name of the locator or grantor while the direct section is alphabetical by the name of the claim or grantee.

Arrangement

Chronological

Research Note

A certain number of pages were alloted to each letter in the index and after the alloted space was filled, the index for that particular letter was continued on black pages at the end of the book. As a result, researchers will need to check the index under both the alphabetical letter and at the end of the index to ensure finding all related records. Researchers should consult all the indexes to ensure finding all related materials for the mining operations they are researching.
