Blaine County researchers, we would also like to express our
appreciation, and thanks, Colleen Switzer for
her vision in writing this volume in order to preserve the history of
the sandhill counties of Loup and Blaine, Nebraska.
The author, Colleen
Iris (Goehring) Switzer, was born in Loup County, Nebraska Her
Geohring family had roots in Blaine County. Collen's expressed
interest in writing this volume was so ". . . that her children might have
knowledge of the early history of the area in which they were born and in which
their ancestors had a part in settling. For the most part this history
covers only those years prior to 1890."
