This collection is work that Paul Riley did while working at the Nebraska State Historical Society. He researched mainly in the southwest Nebraska as his childhood was spent in the Trenton, Hitchcock County area and this seemed to spark his interest in this corner of Nebraska. The collection will expand as materials are received and time permits for the information to be processed for the site.

About the NEGenWeb Project 

About USGenWeb

Requirements for Home Pages Created Under the NEGenWeb Project

     NEGenWeb was formed in June 1996, when Dale Schneider created the Nebraska Genealogy Project as a part of the USGenWeb Genealogy Project. At that time, there was very little available on the web for those who were researching genealogy in Nebraska . Over the next year, volunteers were recruited to coordinate the web pages for each county. These volunteers were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the county web pages, which would include listing information on where to look in that county for genealogical research. Contact the volunteer shown on the county page if you have a desire to help or add your data to the database. You may notice a message on a county page indicating it is available for adoption. If you would like to adopt one of these counties, please contact the current coordinator of the page, whose name is listed on their county site, or the State Coordinator.
