THE PEOPLES OF UTAH REVISITED


Utah is home to countless communities with distinct and intertwined histories, and many of their stories are still waiting to be shared. Partner with The Utah Historical Society through The Peoples of Utah Revisited initiative to help widen the lens on Utah's history and share the stories of you and your community. Here, you'll learn more about the various ways we can collaborate together to ensure your history is part of Utah's history.

ABOUT PEOPLES OF UTAH
Help us shine a light on our state’s rich array of cultures, traditions, and experiences by partnering with The Peoples of Utah Revisited initiative.

COMMUNITY PARTNER RESOURCES


1. COMMUNITY HISTORY

Partner with our Peoples of Utah Revisited staff to make digital images of items that capture a variety of community experiences. Working together, we can preserve and share the images, documents, and objects that best represent your past, family, and community.

→ A Scan-and-Share is a community event where photos, letters, recipes, and other relevant items are brought by attendees to be digitized. These digital copies become part of the Peoples of Utah Revisited online collection.
→ The Peoples of Utah Revisited online collection, consists of more than 700 digitized items representing Utah’s many communities and cultures.
→ Scan-and-Share community submissions also can be accepted online via form.

2. RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

Community historians, scholars, and students are invited to submit new research and social history on Utah communities that are not well represented in the historical literature. 

Research-driven articles and digital story maps will be published in the Utah Historical Quarterly or the forthcoming Peoples Online, a public-facing website that will launch in 2026.

3. ORAL HISTORY

Help gather oral histories in your community! Oral histories are audio or video interviews with community members about their lived experiences. The recordings are transcribed, then both are preserved in archival collections. A community’s oral traditions can also be recorded and preserved in this way.

Our team offers oral history training and also can provide equipment, funding, and guidance for your project. Your recordings and transcriptions will become part of the Peoples of Utah Revisited online collection, where they will remain available to the public for research and educational purposes.
