Nance County, Nebraska was established in 1879 on land acquired from the Pawnee Indians under a treaty moving them to a reservation in Oklahoma. It is located in eastern Nebraska, bounded on the north by Boone county, on the north east by Platte county, on the south by Merrick county, and on the west by Howard & Greeley counties.

NEGenWeb was formed in June 1996, when Dale Schneider created the Nebraska Genealogy Project as a part of the USGenWeb Genealogy Project. At that time, there was very little available on the web for those who were researching genealogy in Nebraska . Over the next year, volunteers were recruited to coordinate the web pages for each county. These volunteers were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the county web pages, which would include listing information on where to look in that county for genealogical research. Contact the volunteer shown on the county page if you have a desire to help or add your data to the database. You may notice a message on a county page indicating it is available for adoption. If you would like to adopt one of these counties, please contact the current coordinator of the page, whose name is listed on their county site, or the State Coordinator.
