Two of the most helpful guides to places in Nebraska are:

Fitzpatrick, Lillian Linder. Nebraska Place Names.. . . New edition. Lincoln, Nebraska: University of Nebraska Press, 1960. (Family History Library book 978.2 E5f.)

Perkey, Elton A. Perkey' s Nebraska Place Names. Lincoln, Nebraska: Nebraska State Historical Society, 1982. (Family History Library book 978.2 E2p; film 1035665; fiche 6051307.

The Nebraska State Historical Society has compiled a database, the 1890/1911 Gazetteer Index.  The researcher may input a Name, City, and/or Year (1890 or 1911) and will be given a listing of all the matching name index entries.
