In addition, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a presentation of “Take All to Nebraska: How They Came,” by Gail Blankenau.
In this sesquicentennial of Nebraska statehood, Gail Blankenau examines the great migration into the heart of America, from Nebraska’s opening of settlement in 1854 into the 20th century. How did we get here? Gail tells the stories of different families, showing how their experiences were both unique and representative of the broader American narrative. Using these case studies, she examines a wide variety of sources and methods for incorporating family migration stories into our family histories.
