American Local History Network, Nebraska

Welcome to the state of Nebraska!


We have partnered with the American Local History Network to sponsor the State of Nebraska. In our role as a State Coordinator we hope to present quality information and a collaborative environment that will help you discover your family history and ancestors. The ALHN organization is a wonderful group of people that enjoy providing their family histories and discoveries with other researchers and genealogists. Please consider joining this group. Whether you wish to help with this state, one of its counties, or with another part of our history, they have a fun team. Click the ALHN logo to learn about the group and how you might benefit from participating in its efforts.


While you are here I hope you will consider becoming a county coordinator or even just provide some of your family historical information to this site. Please consider it. Participation isn't hard and I am willing to help you in any way I can. What is most important, is that you want to help others by putting historical and genealogical information on the web. I am sure that you have something valuable to offer. Your family research, biographies, histories, pictures or other information would be so helpful to others. Please let me know if you have any questions, or if would like to help in any way. If you don't want to sponsor a county, maybe you have some information you would like to share, that is a great thing too. Please contact me so we can find the right way for you to participate. We would love to have you join our team. Send a message by going to the About Us page and submitting a note concerning your interest. Please be sure to describe what you are interested in.


The entire site is open for reading; however, I hope you will consider becoming a Member.
