Our hope is that this site will assist you in researching
the history of the area and your genealogical connection.
I am your County Administrator, and have been
researching Colfax County for over ten years and
my family within it. I am not located in Nebraska,
and am unfortunately unable to assist with on-site research.

If you have anything you are willing to contribute to this
page to further our goal of free genealogy, or would like to volunteer in any capacity, please
email me.

As a strictly volunteer effort, this site is continually growing.
Please check back often for updates, which I will highlight in the links below.

Thank you, and best of luck in your research!
