After reading through some of your queries I would like to offer a couple sources that you might check out to look for those mystery people in your lives. Some of you said there aren't very many sources for family tree hunting in Cedar county.
Twila Anderson retired due to ill health, and Kristi Lamm and I teamed up to combine the websites and we now have a Cedar county website with the address www.usgennet.org/usa/ne/county/cedar
Much new stuff has been added since July of this year. You might recognized the old site as www.rootsweb.com/~necedar2,
they wanted to charge to store and use the site there, so it was moved. Dave Dowling at the Cedar County courthouse is a link, and he makes obtaining records very affordable, we have tried to index many of the records up through 1940.
There are a lot of goodies and links on this site and may take a little navigation before you discover everything available.It also has links to a lot of places included the Hartington public Library with the genealogical resources they have available.They recently added a list of their family histories.Tami and Carol are glad to work with you. Their link tells how to contact them. We hope some of you will sign our guestbook and and list family you are looking for, or have questions we can help you with. Good Luck.
