Beatrice, Gage County, Neb.:  

Size:  9 volumes on 1 reel of microfilm


This collection consists of one microfilm reel containing nine volumes chronologically arranged from 1872 to 1961. The church register, 1872-1935, is formed by four of the nine volumes and includes lists of elders, deacons and communicants as well as records of baptisms, marriages and deaths. The session minutes are chronologically arranged from 1872 to 1961 in four volumes.

The collection relates to the various activities of the church from 1872 through 1961. Although no records were kept from the church’s organization on March 17, 1869, to the first recorded minutes of May 12, 1872, a note is located in the first pages of volume one compensating for this omission.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
