Book Description

April 2, 2013 080634816X 978-0806348162
Ms. Greene has compiled an extraordinarily comprehensive guide to the genealogical resources of the state of Nevada, and it pulls together records from a number of sources, including courthouses, compiled lists, and Internet sites. The first chapter concerns general, or statewide, genealogical sources, including the Nevada holdings of the LDS Family History Library. Here the compiler provides an overview of Nevada history, followed by an alphabetically arranged list of general sources, such as census records, church records, libraries and archives with addresses and holdings, tribal organizations, directories and bibliographies, land and property records, maps, military records, Indian Affairs records, newspapers, obituaries, public and vital records, and much more. The bulk of the volume, of course, concerns itself with Nevada's thirteen counties and their published sources. Each chapter commences with background on the formation and boundaries of the county, legislated changes in its configuration, and the location of the county seat. Ms. Greene then zeroes in on the county's genealogical resources by citing the address, hours of operation, and the holdings of the following: church archives, the county courthouse, special libraries, newspapers and their repositories, LDS Family History Centers, cemeteries, funeral homes, printed county histories, and so on. Since the book is arranged alphabetically by county and thereunder by record category and repository, a complete index is unnecessary; however, the volume concludes with a helpful index to all the places (libraries, churches, etc.) referred to in the text. Without a doubt this is the volume by which all future guides to Nevada genealogy will be compared.
