Spring Greetings!

This site is part of the NEGenWeb Project that is part of the USGenWeb.
I am the volunteer Coordinator for Loup County.  While live in Washington State, my Nebraska connections date back to 1872 when my family came to the central area of Nebraska.  I cannot do on-site research, however, I do have some connections that may be able to help beyond the scope of this web site.
This is great place to find, and connect with, your family history.  

Patricia "Pat" C. Ash, coordinator
Happy Researching in 2005!
