Judy Arnold and Robert Doud Martin -
These individuals have transcribed vital records and
historical documents pertaining to their Cass Co. ancestors
and others. Copies of their transcriptions have been donated
to the USGenWeb Archives to aid in the preservation and
dissemination of information. Their contributions can be
viewed at the Cass
County, NEGenWeb Archives
Wendy Anderson - Wendy, a young wife and
mother, next took over the site and between taking care of
husband and child, gave this site the look it has today. She
spent many hours designing the pages and creating
user-friendly internal search modes, so people could find the
wealth of information she then spent many more hours adding
to the Cass Co. site and to the the Nebraska Archives.
Jean Lambert - In 1999, Jean volunteered
to help put on the list of those registering for service in
1917 before World War I. She ended up doing the entire list
for every precinct in the county and then returning to
proof-read the entire list after it was initially put on
line. She has gone on to contribute other data
J.E. (Gene) Wheeler - Gene has
generously shared with us, his long work abstracting records
of baptisms and burials in
Plattsmouth, Nebraska for Holy Rosary Catholic Church and the
Czech community in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
Angela Hanson - Angela has generously
given her time to search the Plattsmouth Journal, a major
newspaper in Cass County, to find and transcribe obituaties.
She is also helping to complete the work Wendy Anderson began
on a page about local funeral homes. Angela is interviewing
funeral homes and providing the coordinators of this site
with the resulting information, so folks can find pertinent
information about their ancestors.
David Gochenhour - David has diligently
and generously worked to get the 1920 Cass County Census on
line at the USGenWeb Census Project pages. He has also sent
in many transcribed documents.
Others - Many kind folks have sent in
items to be posted on this site. Not all have wished to have
their names published. Others can no longer be contacted for
permission to do so. The coordinators of this site, Becky
Applegate and I, appreciate every person who has helped to
increase the richness of the Cass County USGenWeb site. They
are the strength factor of the NeGenWeb Project.
