Genealogy

At the Lexington Public Library, you will find a rich source of genealogy information as well as a great group of people dedicated in their own genealogy research willing to assist others in their research.

Our local genealogy association meets at the library on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Call the library at 308-324-2151 for more information.

The library has a new microfilm reader available to our patrons.

The Lexington Genealogical Society meets on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 7:30 p.m. at the Lexington Public Library, located at 907 N Washington St, Lexington , Nebraska. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Membership is $10.00 per individual. The membership year is January 1 through December 31. Membership benefits include a subscription to the Quarterly newsletter, “Lexington Genealogical Society Newsletter”. Unlimited queries are published free to members. Queries are $1.00 to non members.

Local research by members of the society is available. The minimum fee for this research is $5.00 plus photocopying costs and postage. Please put “Lexington Genealogy Society” in the subject line and be specific in the nature of the research you are requesting. Be sure to include any contacts that you have already made in the county, including the county court house, Dawson County Historical Society, or any other county society. If a contact has already been made, knowing about it will help to cut down on our research time. We will check all our resources in Dawson County and when research is completed an e-mail will be returned assessing costs of said research.

Please send a SASE, and $5.00 minimum, if research is sent by regular mail
