Scope and Content

As the agent responsible for recording documents relating to mining claims, the Tooele County recorder created abstracts for all claims. An abstract is a chronological list of recorded documents relating to a particular mining claim. The recorder also created an alphabetical index to provide access to these abstracts. For each claim, the index indicates the book and page number in the abstract books where the county recorder began keeping the abstract record. The index also indicates the mining district in which each claim was located.


By abstract book referenced, thereunder alphabetical by first letter of the claim name.

Research Note

This index was microfilmed with the camera head upside down, and therefore the images are in reverse order on the reel. In order to read the entries in chronological order, a researcher will need to read the microfilm backwards.
