History and General Information

Cuming County was formed by a territorial act approved March 16, 1855. Boundaries were redefined February 12, 1857 and again January 10, 1862. The county was named in honor of Thomas B. Cuming, acting governor of Nebraska Territory from 1854 to 1855 and and from 1857 to 1858. Catherine (now defunct) was the county seat until 1858, when a vote moved the county seat to West Point.

About the NEGenWeb Project

NEGenWebThe NEGenWeb Project was formed June, 15, 1996, when Dale Schneider created the Nebraska Genealogy Project as a part of the USGenWeb Genealogy Project. At that time, there was very little available on the web for those who were researching genealogy in Nebraska. Over the next year, volunteers were recruited to coordinate the webpages for each county. These volunteers were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the county webpages, which would include listing information on where to look in that county for genealogical research. Contact the volunteer shown on the county page if you have a desire to help or add your data to the database. You may notice a message on a county page indicating it is available for adoption. If you would like to adopt one of these counties, please contact the current coordinator of the page, whose name is listed on their county site, or the State Coordinator.Note: If your browser does not support the scripted mailto link, use one of these addresses. It may take a little longer to receive a response. Be sure to include NEGenWeb Project in the subject line. Connie Snyder at [email protected] or Bill Oliver at [email protected]
