When searching for 内布拉斯加 genealogy records, such as birth, death, and marriage records, the genealogist 要么 family historian needs to start with a general area and then focus on a specific locale.

The NSHS has had a variety of homes including, for a time, the State Capitol Building. After 第一次世界大战I, a headquarters and museum building were constructed on R Street, on the south side of the University of 内布拉斯加 campus. As the state has grown, so has the amount of material entrusted to the facility.

1985年,NSHS进入了重组时期,并将其重点转移到包括现代技术在内,与公共和私营部门组织建立了合作伙伴关系。简而言之,它超出了建筑物。 NSHS现在在林肯市中心拥有三个地点。总部和图书馆仍位于1500 R Street的大楼中。博物馆和书店位于南部的两个街区,分别位于15th和P。档案馆位于市区西侧K街的设施中。

The museum is a good place to get an overview of the history of 内布拉斯加. Its book store/gift shop has a number of titles that might be of interest to a genealogy researcher. The library is a must stop for those researching family history. Check the website for hours of operation.

内布拉斯加 marriage record information for all the counties, typically kept at the county level, is also available at the 内布拉斯加 State Historical Society.

档案馆的藏品包括照片,全州法院记录和州政府记录。那是个好消息。坏消息是,由于位于异地,所以从存档中访问项目是一个为期两天的过程,因为必须通过图书馆获取它们。工作人员非常有帮助,但这仍然是一个过程。

Staff members of the library will do some basic name look-ups. Their fee schedule is listed on the NSHS website. Some discounts are available to society members and 内布拉斯加 residents. A list of researchers – including the experienced genealogists at RecordClick.com – is on the website.
