Nebraska Maps

Old and new maps enhance genealogical research. Who doesn't like maps? If you are researching in Nebraska, be sure to check out the map collection at the University of Texas at Austin online.

They are in JPG or PDF format. The collection also contains a Lincoln 1901 map, Nebraska City 1920 map and one for Omaha in 1920. It is interesting to see how small Omaha was in 1920.

There are many maps available at the Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR) Map Library. These include county maps and historical maps. Some are large, so be prepared for the time they may take in downloading.

Links to Nebraska maps, some plat and township maps, can be found at NebraskAccess. Some of these are in the early part of the 1900s.

Have fun locating Nebraska maps on Internet. They will add interest to your genealogical research!
