For many more Nebraska
Publications, and links to phenomenal data for research in this state
Please be sure to check this out:
The NEGenWeb Project and the NEGenWeb Project On-Line Library, both can be accessed through my Chase County NE Site. There is a great drop down list there of the many projects that this great group has worked on together to create data on line for you the researcher, including a search system that allows you to search all the sites of NEGenWeb Project. This group of individuals comes from all over the country and is dedicated to getting the best there is in the way of research data on line, all kept in control by our own "Mother Hen"
Nebraska Place Names
We also have "Nebraska Place Names", Lilian Linder Fitzpatrick, 1925 online. It's similar to Perkey's, but maybe not as complete. Looking for that lost town in Nebraska, this along with the 1895 atlas are great resources for you to use. Connie Snyder the State Coordinator transcribed this book.
Poems and Sketches of Nebraska
This book published in 1908 by Addison Erwin Sheldon with over 70 titles and about 65 images is beautiful. According to Lynn Waterman, the host of the wonderful Legacy site who transcribed this book for the library, this little book has something for everyone: Sports, war story, Indians and cowboys, love story, poems written in German, Sioux Indian, etc. The images and writings are beautiful. Thanks again Lynn!
THE BIRDS OF NEBRASKA
Published in 1896 by Lawrence Bruner, this is a fantastic little book with the most difficult to pronounce names I have ever seen. Lynn Waterman did a phenomenal job! The sketches and descriptions of the birds are great! For those of you wanting to do research in Nebraska, we added some fun, I mean if you cannot have fun in life why live it? So if you want to see what the NEGenWeb Project calls themselves, make sure you look up the bird called "Eaglelark" This book is a joint project for the Memorial Library and her Legacy Preservation Project.
This will be an
ongoing project, I will add the new items that Fred sends me as I get them. Fred
has been a boon to the Memorial Library and has been collecting cards for over
40 years. I have split them into city pages and as some of the larger
pages get too big, I will split those into sections.
This section has been totally redone in a format that I think the researcher will find easy to use. Enjoy!!!
