Donations are always welcomed — whether they are time, archival materials, artifacts, or monetary. Families will often donate materials from multiple generations, knowing that future researchers will find those materials easier at a central repository than if left with a relative that may or may not be found.

Volunteering Your Time
Return to Top

If live near York, we encourage you to come and join in the fun of expanding this website, helping research (such as walking cemeteries), or helping other researchers. Students and adults are equally welcomed! If you are outside of our area and would like to help indexing books, there are always books that need to be indexed.

 

Sharing Your Research
Return to Top

Family trees, diaries, histories, and photographs (originals or copies) are always welcomed either in hard copies or GEDCOM files. Be sure to include a note telling how much can be shared with others. Some allow unrestricted access and copies, others prefer to allow limited copies, and others prefer to let others view their research but not allow any copies of their research.

 

Donations: Artifacts or Archival Materials
Return to Top

Should you wish to make a donation of archival materials or artifacts, the materials must be related to York County or Nebraska's history and you must be the owner or agent of the materials being donated.

If you are mailing a package from the Post Office, use: York County Historical Association, P.O. Box 81, York, NE 68467. However, if you are shipping via UPS please contact us for a shipping address. Please do not use the postal address for UPS shipments, as there may not be someone at the building to accept it from the mailman or delivery peson and we don't want your materials stolen by someone seeing an unattended box.

Unfortunately our budget does not enable us to reimburse you for the postage or any insurance necessary to send the materials.

 

Donations: Monetary
Return to Top

Should you wish to make a monetary contribution, it may be in the form of a restricted/designated donation (you define what area or purpose it is to be used for), or it may be an unrestricted donation (where it is left to the association's discretion). We also accept memorials, designated or unrestricted. Donations will be treated as unrestricted unless stated otherwise.

 

The Wish List

Like any child being asked what they would like as a gift, this list is fairly easy to compile. It is not in any particular order.

Archival Materials

  • Any books that pertain to York County or Nebraska — history books, biographies, plat books, city directories, farm/ranch directories, and school annuals (or class updates) from any year.
  • Family trees, diaries, histories or stories, even those still in progress.
  • Any materials relating to the Spanish American War, especially Company A. The first company of volunteers from Nebraska was Company A from York County.
  • Any sheet music or music books published by J. A. Parks & Company, or tied to J. A Parks.
  • Photographs, including picture postcards, related to York County.
  • Any publications, books, or artwork by York County residents, or about York County residents.

Office Furniture

  • Fire-proof filing cabinets are a necessity for an archival library. We are always in need of more to house documents and photographs.
