Nebraska Census Records at the Nebraska State Historical Society


Prior to 1860, some county enumerations were taken in eastern Nebraska. They were published, as shown below, in a now-defunct periodical entitled NEBRASKA AND MIDWEST GENEALOGICAL RECORD, published by the Nebraska Genealogical Society 1922-1944. This series may be used in the James C. Olson Research Library (East Room) at the Nebraska State Historical Society (1500 "R" Street). The call number is 978.2 N27. Requested pages up to fifty sheets will be copied for mail requests at the usual fees. (see A Guide to Research Sources in The Reference Department at the Nebraska State Historical Society).

The territorial and 1869 Nebraska census enumerations from NEBRASKA AND MIDWEST GENEALOGICAL RECORD are now available on the web as part of the NEGenWeb Project.  http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ne/topic/resources/OLLibrary/Journals/NMGR/index.html
