If you're doing genealogy work in Nebraska then you'll find this book invaluable. There were so many settlements during pioneer days which no longer exist, or worse that have changed their names. This book will be a life-saver because it has it all! I keep thinking that I'll finally find some reference in a family history which the book won't have, but it hasn't happened yet! This is a reference book which so far has been 100% complete.

The author has done lots of research to bring you every town that has ever existed in every county in Nebraska. He has every name change and date it occured from the annals of history. Many towns changed names many times. This book is great for historical projects and other purposes. He even has when the post offices were opened and closed for these towns. There is more history in this book than your first glance tells you. If you like to explore, this book can help you find places that barely exist anymore. Its a priceless addition to your history book collection.

Too bad we bought this. The details really aren't there. You can't actually find the towns. We know our counties history very well and some of the references aren't accurate.
This is mostly an accumulation of information found in other records. It was a gift and has, although, made for some reading to pass time on short trips.

This book is a must when doing family research in Nebraska as a cross reference to US Census. Very helpful in finding locations, as many of the early communities have disappeared or names have changed.
