Obituary collections

The West Nebraska Family Research & History Center staff has been clipping obituaries out of the regional newspapers and pasting them into 3-ring binders since we opened in 2004. In addition to our in-house collection we have been given binders full of obituaries from various individuals, instead of trying to integrate the collections we have opted to keep the compiled works as individual and distinct collections. Below is a list of the various collections, website members can browse the scanned images as we add them to the site.
