It’s really happening!

Provo's historic newspapers
are now being added to
Utah Digital Newspapers!

One of the most valuable ways to bring Utah’s local history to life is to preserve its historic local newspapers, then make them easily accessible to everyone.

The Utah Digital Newspapers program and website is doing just that. The older the Utah newspaper, the more likely it is that they can find the funds to digitize it.

They gather, film, index and make those newspapers searchable online, making it possible for people all over the country to find key family information, and do other local historical research -- all without charge to on-line readers!


There is a Chinese saying, “The weakest ink is better than the strongest memory.” Utah Digital Newspapers turns up wonderful, often surprising, insights into families and cities by making Utah's historic printed newspapers available as digitized, searchable documents.

Subject: Daily Herald in Utah Digital Newspapers

Hi BYH Alumni,

We have communicated in the past about making the Provo Daily Herald available in Utah Digital Newspapers. You may have seen the following story in the Daily Herald about making more of this available:

Here is an update about this. All of the Daily Herald from 1909-2009 is available in Utah Digital Newspapers.

Within the next couple of months that everything will be available. As of right now, 75% of the content is available.

Since the Daily Herald was published a few different ways over the years, you can find the full run of the newspaper under the following titles:

Provo Daily Herald (1922-1925, 1939-2009) -

Provo Sunday Herald (1922-1972) -

Provo Semi-Weekly Herald (1909-1922) -

Provo Evening Herald (1925-1939) -

In the near future that we will be able to also make the Utah County Democrat available since that is the predecessor to the Daily Herald.

Let me know if you have any questions about this. We are very excited to be able to have a nearly complete run of this paper in Utah Digital Newspapers now!
