INDEX to Colleen Swtizer's
"The Settlement of Loup & Blaine Counties"
Blaine County Section

 

This index was created, and transcribed, by Sondra Watrus at the request of the Blaine NEGenWeb.  

We would like to express our sincere appreciation for Sondra's willingness to undertake this project for us.  We could have not accomplished this without her willingness to step forward and undertake this task.  

Sondra's accomplishment, together that of with Karolee (Ingraham) Plock's for the Loup portion of the book, now provide researchers added information for many years to come.
  

On behalf of the Blaine NEGenWeb, and 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."
