2014's Top Viewed Records from the NSHS Online Archives

As we look back on 2014, one of our favorite things to do here at the NSHS is to see which items from our archives spoke the loudest to the people of Nebraska and beyond. Our year-end statistics from PastPerfect (our online archive) show that thousands viewed our easily accessible database in 2014 and give us the most popular records of the past year.
