Staff Reference Services

The staff of the Archives/Library will answer mail requests for information when the requests are specific, clearly stated, and limited in scope. A $5.00 minimum fee is required before research is started. Requests should be limited to three searches per letter and only one letter at a time should be sent requesting searches. When you receive a response to one letter, you may send another request for three searches. We can search a source only when a name, place, and date are indicated as specified throughout this guide. Examples that would constitute one search are: a search for one surname in indexed county histories for one county; a search for one family in a census; a search for one family in land tract records; or a search for one obituary. Letters received which do not indicate specifically what information is requested cannot be answered and will be returned. Because of the volume of correspondence we receive, we may require up to thirty days to reply to a request. For more comprehensive genealogical research, we encourage you to contact local genealogical societies to see if their members might help check records at the Society or in their area. A list of local genealogical societies in Nebraska is available (Reference Information Guide No. 5). While we do not loan our books or original documents, some material on microfilm is available through interlibrary loan. Contact the Archives/Library for further information.
