We are happy to announce that we are beginning to photograph the Swedish American church books in Nebraska. This is our third project in the United States. There are approximately one hundred Scandinavian American churches located across the state of Nebraska.
Photographing began on June 22nd at the Bethel Lutheran Church in Omaha, Nebraska, and filming will continue into the fall of 2017. An ArkivDigital employee, Sven, is traveling the state visiting churches and copying these historic records. Assisting him with the church visits are three project directors: Warren E. Johnson of Omaha, Nebraska, Tina Larson with the Plainsman Museum in Aurora, Nebraska, and Sandra Slater with the Holdrege Area Genealogy Club at the Nebraska Prairie Museum in Holdrege, Nebraska.
Most of the Nebraska records will be published this fall. Currently, some records for the Aurora Covenant Church in Aurora, Nebraska are available online. You can find these records by doing the following:
- Select archive search in ArkivDigital
- Select county
