Welcome to the NEGenWeb Project Resource Center! This site was created to assist you in your research of Nebraska ancestors. I'm David Gochenour, the Nebraska State Coordinator. The person responsible for the Resource Center, Connie Snyder, has retired, and we wish to thank her for this great, um, Resource!!. These pages are the result of many hours of effort from many people, and we thank them all! A very special "Thank-you" goes to Ginger Cisewski who created and maintained the Resource Center since the very first!
