Documenting Nebraska Voices: How does COVID-19 affect you?
History Nebraska needs your help to document the impact of COVID-19 in Nebraska, and invites you to share your story and add your voice to the historical record. History Nebraska’s collections encompass all aspects of life in our state, from the extraordinary to the everyday. Each photograph, journal, and object tells a unique story. By collecting, we develop a better understanding of the life of a business owner in Grand Island, to a teacher in Valentine, and everyone in between. By contributing your story today, you are ensuring future Nebraskans have the ability to understand and appreciate what life was like in our time.

We understand your thoughts and opinions may change over time, so we invite you to complete this survey as many times as you like. You may chose to be anonymous when journal entries.

Thank you for sharing your story. If you have questions, contact us at
