Germans in Nebraska
The Deutsch-Amerikanischer Farmer, along with a host of other German newspapers were widely spread throughout Nebraska throughout the latter half of the 1800s into the early 1900s. Deutsch-Amerikanischer Farmer began in 1888 and was published in both Lincoln, NE and Chicago, IL until it eventually merged with National Farmer, Haus and Bauernfreund.
