Nebraska Memories

Nebraska Memories is a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska historical and culture heritage materials. They are then made available on Internet. It is administered by the Nebraska Library Commission.

Currently there are over 3,500 digitized items with growth each month. There are eleven Nebraska institutions participating in the project. The materials generally range in date from the 1890s to the 1970s. Here you will find photographs, artifacts, papers, manuscripts, maps, audio files and documents. There are no actual genealogical resources. However, there is a significant amount of valuable resources that genealogists can apply to their research.

A search can be performed by specific collections or by all collections with a variety of words or combinations. You can also browse by all images, topics (such as railroads, portraits, towns and more), an entire collection or by location.

Make some time in your schedule to explore this extremely interesting and helpful web site. I hope you will find something of interest. Be sure to check back for new additions.
