HELLO - WELCOME!
My name is LaRae Halsey-Brooks, and my daughter,
Eireann Brooks, and I are the County Co-Coordinators
for the Dawes County NEGenWeb Project.
I have been researching our family roots for 30+ years and have
volunteered for many genealogical libraries over the years.
My daughter Eireann and I have been creating and maintaining
County and Special Project webpages for the USGenWeb for 18 years.
If you would like to contribute Biographical Sketches of your
Dawes County families to this website, please let us know.
We will be happy to create a special page for your material
and include any photographs, scanned documents,
or other items you'd like to add to the page.
We also would like a list of your Dawes County Surnames
with dates and townships. We'll include a link back
so others researching your families can contact you.
If you live in or near Dawes County and would like to
take digital photographs of cemeteries and tombstones,
please let us know.
If you have access to existing cemetery transcriptions,
land records, tax rolls, school class rosters/photos, etc.,
we would be most grateful for any and all submissions.
If you are interested in hosting another county
in Nebraska for the NEGenWeb Project,
adoptable counties can be found on the County Page,
or you may contact Nebraska State Coordinator David Gochenour.
Please check back from time to time
as we add new records to the page!
LaRae & Eireann
