Nebraska Book

A year in the planning, my new book, Genealogical Research in Nebraska, has been published by Family Roots Publishing Co. I wrote the book with genealogists in mind ... genealogists with ancestors or relatives who may have settled in Nebraska.

There are many repositories in Nebraska and unique records. The book contains information on the types of records and where to locate them. The following are chapters in the book:

  • Introduction
  • Nebraska Settlement
  • Colonization and Development by Railroad
  • Nebraska Court System and Records
  • Nebraska Vital Records
  • Probate, Guardianships and Adoptions
  • Land Records
  • Naturalization Records
  • Civil and Criminal Court Records
  • County Histories
  • Territorial, Federal and State Censuses
  • Military Records
  • Schools and Records
  • Cemeteries
  • Institutional Records
  • Nebraska Railroads
  • Nebraska Ethnic Groups
  • Religious Records
  • Orphan Trains
  • Cattle Brands
  • Societies, Repositories and Libraries
  • Genealogical Collections in Nebraska Libraries and Repositories
  • Nebraska State Censuses & Substitutes 1854-1976
  • Maps Showing Nebraska County Boundary Changes
  • Nebraska County Records – Alphabetical by county
  • Suggested Internet Web Pages
  • Suggested Reading
  • Notes
Just in time for spring and summer research, the book can be ordered at Family Roots Publishing Co. It will also be available throughout the year at genealogy conferences where Family Roots Publishing Co. is a vendor.


  1. Looks wonderful, Ruby. Will it be available in digital format?

  2. It will not be available in digital format. Sorry. But thanks for your interest in it.

  3. Hi Ruby ~

    What great timing!! I have just ordered this for a friend with extensive Nebraska roots. She is just getting interested in genealogy and I'm trying to suck her into the cult ;-)
