Here’s a sampling of the helpful tips you’ll get in the Idaho guide:

  • In the 1840s and 1850s, Idaho was merely a stopover for migrants on the way to California’s gold fields. Utah Mormons founded the first permanent white settlement, Franklin, in 1860.
  • Because of its relatively late settlement, Idaho has spotty vital records coverage into the 20th century.
  • Idaho grew from less than 17,000 residents in 1863 to nearly 90,000 by statehood in 1890.
