NEGenWeb Project


Although these pages are here to assist those researching their family histories in Clay County, Nebraska, the County Coordinator/WebMaster does not live in Clay County and are therefore unable to do any research for individuals.  The main purpose is to maintain these pages and to add new information as we receive it. 


We are looking for materials to be added and we encourage your submissions.  Types of materials we are looking for include:  family histories, biographies, photos, obituaries, etc.  Because of copyright laws, only materials dated before 1923 or written by the submitter will be accepted.  Contributions would be greatly appreciated.  For more information on how you can help check the NEGenWeb Project Help Wanted page.  Please direct any comments or problems with these pages to:  Bill Oliver, Clay County Coordinator.
