About the NEGenWeb Project
NEGenWeb was formed June 15, 1996, when Dale
Schneider creaed 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 webpages for each county. These volunteers were willing to coordinate
the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of
the county webpages, 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.
