Professional Researchers That Do Research for Cheyenne County
This a list of people who will do genealogical research or search records in Cheyenne County for a fee. They do not have an affiliation with the NEGenWeb Project and the NEGenWeb Project cannot be responsible for their work. You must make any arrangements directly with them. If you have a complaint about any researcher's work, please contact me 
 BettyAron Schneider, so that the name can be removed from the list.

William Andrew  - As commonly known, the Nebraska State Historical Society is the leading source for Nebraska Genealogy. With ten years experience visiting this facility I consider that I am competent on their holdings. I am not a professional genealogist so I don't have the fees basis that goes along with that prestigious title. If you are interested in receiving a bid for my services or simply just asking questions about Nebraska genealogy, I will enjoy corresponding with you, answering questions. I request a lookup fee of $10 which would include time spent, parking, copy fee and postage. Please state that your request is for Cheyenne County.  Contact me at
If you are willing to do genealogical research but do need to charge for your services to help defray your costs, I will happily list you or your group here also.
