In Nebraska Only records that are 50 years old or
older may be asked for family history. Birth and
death records start in 1904. Marriage and divorce
records start in 1909. Some counties kept records in
ledgers before 1904 and 1909. From 1904 to 1911
births were usually filed only under the father’s
name and didn't list the name of the child. This was
only to register the birth not to make a birth
certificate. Certificates for births started in
1912. Beginning in 1941, a person born in Nebraska
before 1905 could ask to have their birth record put
on file (delayed birth). In 1985, birth and death
certificates were sent to NE Vital Records in
Lincoln, NE. (except Lancaster and Douglas
Counties). For marriages before 1909, contact the
county where the marriage license was filed or the
Nebraska State Historical Society. For divorces
before 1909, check with the Clerk of the District
Court in the county where the divorce was granted.
Birth, Death, Marriage and Divorce
certificates are available from the Nebraska
Departmant of Health and Human Services.
