[Under Construction]

I am requesting information and assistance with discovering Arthur County resources.

Information on the following resources would be welcome: local libraries (history books, genealogical records, etc), local newspapers (back issue files), local mortuaries (funeral records), cemetery locations, and cemetery listings.

In addition, anyone with access to any of any county resources, and who is willing to volunteer to assist with searching these records in response to researcher queries, please contact me. Your assistance would be gratefully welcomed.

Books of Interest

The book McPherson County: Facts, Families, Fiction has much information about early settlers in Arthur County. It contains 800+ pages, of which 500+ are family histories. Most major Nebraska libraries should have a copy. There are still some copies (10-35) available for purchase, contact: Dorothy Kramer, P.O. Box 36, Tryon, NE 69167, (Tel. 308-587-2376) for availability and pricing.

[Help Icon] I have run across a reference to the book The History of Arthur County, Nebraska, published in 1988 by the Arthur County History Book Committee. I am researching a source to acquire a copy of this book, and I would appreciate any assistance in this quest. If anyone does have access to this book, and is willing to do lookups, please contact me.

Census Data Sources

There are three main sources for viewing the microfilms containing Federal Census data: the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the Nebraska State Historical Society, and the LDS (Mormon) Church Family History Centers (FHC). The Nebraska State Historical Society also has films of the State Censuses. In addition, state and local historical or genealogical societies may have some of these films.

All NARA regional offices have all available Federal censuses from 1790-1920 (most of 1890 was lost in a fire), as well as many other records. All NARA regional offices contain the federal records, but the NARA regional office in Kansas City also contains other Nebraska specific records.

Addresses for viewing census data are:

  • National Archives - Central Plains Region
    2312 East Bannister Road
    Kansas City, Missouri
  • National Archives - Rocky Mountain Region
    Denver Federal Center, Building 48
    Denver, Colorado
  • Nebraska State Historical Society Library
    1500 R Street
    Lincoln, Nebraska

The Family History Centers will contain varying amounts of census microfilm and other records. They should all have (on microfiche or computer) the index of publications available from their main archives in Salt Lake City. Only those FHCs in the larger cities may have extensive permanent files, but all can request (for a small fee) microfilm and microfiche copies for your research. They do not loan books from the archives, but if the books have been filmed, you can request those films. Many local FHCs may also contain donated books and other records of historical or genealogical interest, some will have the Nebraska state census records also.

Family History Centers in Nebraska can be found in Gordon, Grand Island, Hastings, Lincoln, North Platte, Omaha, and Papillon. For addresses, consult telephone books in the appropriate city, or check the NEGenWeb Nebraska Resources Page.
