Welcome to Nebraska Roots and Ramblings

NEBRASKA became a state on 1 March 1867.  It is a grand state which people explored and passed through on their way to the west coast.  Fortunately, some found their way back and others took advantage of the Homestead Act of 1862 and 1866 to obtain land in Nebraska.  

There are many Nebraska resources available for researchers.  This blog will be devoted to research and resources in Nebraska.  There will be information pertaining to genealogical events in the state and a lot of helpful hints and tips for doing research.  Occasionally a post will pertain to a Nebraska library that has a genealogical collection.  

Stay tuned for more on Nebraska ... home of many genealogists and home of the Big Red Huskers!!
