Nebraska Federal Census

ALL US Census:
In fall 2000, this census image database should go online.  Users must "register" and there will probably be a fee.  All decades 1790-1920 will ultimately be there. also will have census online for a fee.  Description of this service

1867 Nebraska admitted as a state.  
Editorial Comment In 2000, there was an argument within USGenWeb, between "Archives" and "Census Project," about control and location of files of census transcriptions or images.  This led to two teams (white and blue pages) forming and some counties taking their census files and moving off Rootsweb host computers.  The fallout for you, the user, is that you cannot depend on one "census" site having all you want to find.  My hope is that this dispute be settled and that the census files find one home site.  And I hope this results in a large, more unified database, maybe for all counties in all decades--time will tell.
