​If you want to see or read the histories or historical documents that we have, you are welcome to come to the museum and visit the Research Department.  

The history department is staffed by a volunteer, and generally, she or the curator can assist you in person if you have any questions or are looking for someone or something special.  

Their schedules vary so call ahead or email us at info@weberdupmuseum.org if you want personal assistance.  Someone will contact you and discuss your request, or arrange a time to meet so that you can get the information that you need.


LOCATION:
​The collection of historical documents is located in the basement in the Research Room of the museum. 

LIST OF HISTORIES:
The histories are listed alphabetically.  There is a page, or pages, for each letter of the alphabet.

After you reviewing the index of our histories and documents that we have you can request copies of them.  Please fill out the Order Form for the copies that you need.  We have to have all names of women (maiden name and all married names). We file all women by a married name. 

If you have questions on any of the listed individuals or historical documents, you have the option of calling the museum, emailing us at info@weberdupmuseum.org, or visiting the museum so that you have the opportunity to look at the histories or documents before you order them.

​We are continually updating our lists of histories or historical documents, so check back to see if there are any others of interest.

HISTORICAL DONATIONS:
​If you would like to submit a history of an ancestor, please use the DUP Title Page.  You can get a copy of this page in the History Category or pick one up at the Museum.
​  
We encourage writing of histories of those pioneers we do not have in our files. We notice there are many native pioneers that settled in Weber County -- those born in the geographic area covered by the State of Deseret/Utah Territory before 10 May 1869 -- for whom we do not have histories on file.  

The Museum welcomes donations of histories of ancestors or other historical documents of pioneers that settled in Weber County.  If you have some histories that you would like to donate please contact the Museum’s Curator and she can help you with your donation.

​We would like to have an original of the history.  If not, you can scan a copy of the original history which will need to be the best copy of the original that you can get.

COLLECTION STORAGE:
All of the historical documentation in our collection is stored safely in the museum with archival quality protection and documentation. Contributing historical documents to the DUP collection enables others to enjoy them
