  1. If somebody wants to venture further west, the North Platte Genealogical Society collection is housed in the North Platte Pubic Library, 120 West 4th Street, North Platte, second floor (there are steps and elevator). We have over 60,000 obituaries and many, many books, microfilm, family file collection, etc. Worth the stop if you are heading west through Nebraska.
