Research Services

Uncover the past…

Whether you are researching your genealogy, the history of your house or building, or general Douglas County history, our Archives team can help!
As the research and educational center of the Douglas County Historical Society, the  Archives Center houses materials that detail the history of Omaha and Douglas County, including newspapers, clipping files, books and government records. Though these items are not available for lending, some documents may be copied or scanned for research purposes.

*Please allow four to six weeks to respond to your request, thank you. Starting May 10th, all research requests are temporarily on hold while we install our new exhibit.
