Nebraska Genealogy Resources

The promise of land brought many early pioneers to Nebraska. The Homestead Act of 1862 provided families 160 acres in return for living on the land for 5 years. Make sure to consult land records to learn more about your family. Plat maps may also be available that can assist you in recreating your ancestor's community.
