Humboldt County, Utah Genealogy
Humboldt County, Utah Territory was organized 5 January 1856  from western parts of Weber, Desert, Tooele, and Juab counties. This county included all of present-day Nevada between 116° and 118° west longitude, and 39° 30' and 42° north latitude.
Humboldt County as part of Utah Territory was discontinued 2 March 1861 when Nevada Territory was created from part of Utah Territory. However, at that time Nevada organized a new Humboldt County to the northwest of the old. Part of the old became part of the new Humboldt, Pershing, Churchill, Elko, Lander, and Eureka counties.
