Beginning April 4th, the State Archives of the Nebraska State Historical Society will be moving our government records collections to a new,
state-of-the-art, storage facility in Lincoln.
Federal, state, county, and local/municipal records will be affected. The government records consist of over 17,500 square feet of
materials including paper records and security microfilm formats that date from circa 1850 to 2015. This relocation is a major effort and will begin April 4th and is scheduled to be completed
by June 30. During this period, government records may not be readily available or accessible. Your patience will be appreciated during this exciting time.
The Library/Archives collects records from federal agencies
that relate to Nebraska history. The subject areas represented
in these records include agriculture, economic development, military
history, judicial matters, natural resources, surveys, Works
Projects Administration, post offices, land, Indian affairs,
census, and immigration.
Most of the records are duplicates of original material
stored at the National Archives and are available on microfilm
in the Library/Archives reference room. These are not available
from us through interlibrary loan. The Library/Archives also
possesses original records from federal agencies such as the
U.S. General Land Office and the Works Projects Administration,
among others. For more information on archives holdings or to
