Nevada Compiled Genealogies
Back to Nevada Portal Page►
Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. These must usually be searched in person.
A major collection of compiled genealogies is the Nevada Centennial Commission's Collection for Early Day Families at the Nevada Historical Society. This collection has information about the state's pioneers and their descendants.
Various chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Daughters of the American Colonists have made transcripts of Bible, cemetery, church, marriage, death, obituary, and probate records. Some of these transcripts are on Family History Library films 869278 and 176645. Others are in Mrs. Chester A. Paterson, ed., Genealogical Records (Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1953-58; Family History Library book 979.3 D2d; film 1425613 items 6-8).
