Weber County DUP Museum

A Top Rated Pioneer Museum ~

Welcome to the

Weber County

Daughters of Utah Pioneers

Photo Department

Our photo collection is centered on the pioneers who settled in Weber County.  Our photo collection is a combination of photos of the pioneers, their homes, and their artifacts.  We also have a collection of Native American photos and artifacts and a collection of community and settlement artifacts from settlers in Weber County.

It is important to remember that:
A pioneer is an ancestor who came to the Utah Territory, died crossing the
plains, or was born in the Utah Territory before May 10, 1869, the coming of the
railroad. If your ancestors do not fit into the criteria, we most likely will not have
​ their photos or information on or about them.

The photo 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 if you want personal assistance.  Someone will contact you and discuss your request or arrange a time to meet so you can get the information you need.

The collection of photos is located in the Research Room in the basement of the museum. 
You can also obtain copies of the many photos, paintings, or portraits hanging on the museum walls.

The photos are listed alphabetically.  There is a page or pages, for each letter of the alphabet.  

If you have questions on any of the listed individuals, you have the option of calling the museum, emailing us at, or visiting the museum so that you have the opportunity to look at the historys before you order them.

​We are continually updating our lists of photos, paintings, or portraits, so check back to see if there are any others that you would be interested in.

The photo listings are located on the website under the Photo category.

In order to get a copy of the photos, paintings, or portraits you will need to fill out the Request Order Form. Photo order must be paid for in advance.

The form can be emailed, mailed, or brought to the museum.

Copies are available for purchase using the following two methods:

These images can be burned to a CD and multiple images can be placed
on one CD. 
Photo Paper Copies:
​ Hard photo paper copies can be made for each photo, painting, or portrait.

The photo and Image Price List is located on the website under the Photo category.

The copies you order can be mailed to you or you can pick them up at the museum.

We are striving to always provide the most complete and accurate records.  If you have information on photos, paintings, or portraits you would like to share, please email us at or call us at 801-393-4460 and leave a message and someone will contact you.

Please use this same method of communication for advice on how to donate or preserve your own historical photographs.

The Museum welcomes donations of photos of ancestors, period places, and other items of pioneers that settled in Weber County that fit the criteria explained on the first page of this document.  If you have some photos that you would like to donate please contact the Museum’s Curator and she can help you with your donation.

​If you make a donation, it does not mean that your particular photo will be displayed at the Museum, but will be added to the collection of photos that we have that are available for others to see and order copies.  At times, some of the photos are rearranged which could result in your photo being displayed. However, it is not a guarantee that it will occur.

We would like to have an original of the photo.  If not, you can scan a copy of the original photo which will need to be the best copy of the original that you can get.  The scanned photo can also be a digital copy.

*SCAN at a reasonably high resolution.   
​ *The FILE FORMAT should be a TIFF format which maintains virtually all of the
original image information, but creates a larger file size. No loss of original detail
occurs when expanding the image so this format is good for archiving and maintaining
as much of the original photo information as possible as well as for printing.    

*Save your first scan/digital image in TIFF format and keep it as your "Master Copy" (at
least for your most important photos). After that, you can alter or resize the image
anyway you like, but save this "processed" image under a different name. 
*If your images are in JPG format, make them as high in resolution as is reasonable,
preferably your original image size, and save them as TIFF.  Yes, you can save a JPG
image to a TIFF file—it won’t give you better resolution than the original JPG, but it will
avoid the loss of even more digital information that occurs every time you “resave” a
​ JPG file.

All of the photos and images in our collection are stored safely in the museum with archival quality protection and documentation. Contributing images to DUP collection enables others to enjoy them.
