I have been having questions and this answers some of them.
Another questions that I have:
What happens if you have an items(s) that have been here so long and no family members (that we know about) aren’t available to contact. Is their a NEbraska Law or whatever?
Thanks for the above.
Your institution does an excellent job.
Nebraska’s Museum Property Act can be used to resolve issues of old loans or property where you do not have documentation of a clear transfer of title. See http://nebraskalegislature.gov/laws/browse-chapters.php?chapter=51 and look at lines 51-701 through 51-712.
