Nebraska Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records The Vital Records department in Nebraska is where birth records are kept all the way back to 1904. According to Statute 71-612, birth records are are allowed to be viewed by anyone. Certified copies, however, can only be ordered by those with proper purpose. For Death Records In Nebraska the Vital Records Office in the Department of Health and Human Services. This institution has records dating back to 1904, and some are even older. For Obituaries Nebraska obituaries are far easier to find in 2009 than at any time in the state's history. Many local libraries and major state newspapers are working hard to put all of their records online for free so that anyone who wants to see them can. Currently, there are three major online databases in this state that you can use to check to see if the obit you are searching for is online. The first handy website is known as O'Bits of Nebraska. This site will allow you to search for and view listings from the past for free and you can also order a hard copy of the obit for a small fee. As is the case in so many other states, the local genealogical society in Omaha does a great job of maintaining listings from the past, as well. You can access their website and view listings from every major city newspaper all the way back to the 1800's. Our final stop is with the McCook Daily Gazette. This local newspaper has a viewable archive of listings from their own newspaper that go back to 2001. You can expect more of these archives to come online over the next few years. For Marriages Nebraska marriage records are kept in the Vital Records Office in the Department of Health and Human Services and go as far back as 1909. Nebraska Rev. Statute 71-612 dictates that marriage records are essentially public record.
