Nevada High School Graduates Index
Nevada High School Alumni Directory 1877-2003 (2003) was compiled by Jeannine Heintz from school records and generously made available by the Nevada Public Library which retains a copy of the document. The source document has been transcibed for the years 1877-1990 using optical charater recognition with subsequent editing. It should be noted that errors may have been introduced at any step of the process. Also, the document itself sometimes cuts off the end of a name in a column.


Iowa Genealogical Society
IGS is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create and foster an interest in genealogy and to aid others in researching their family history.

Today our 3,000+ members are worldwide and the book collection alone spans the length of over five football fields.
