I have always been interested in the history of Omaha/Council Bluffs and it's founding citizens, both influential and ordinary. I started my own website, The Graveyards of Omaha (http://www.steveandmarta.com), in 1994, and have since included any eastern Nebraska and western Iowa graveyards within reach. Today the website has grown to over 500 pages and thousands of photos, with a great deal of local history posted also. Stop by and take a look at how Omaha got it's start, and take a virtual tour of our historic graveyards.

Peter Kiewit Would you be able to go back to Forest Lawn and get a better photo of Peter Kiewit's stone without the dirt on it. A little whiskbroom would take that off. It looks so nice and it deserves to be seen. Thank you. The Kiewit family also resides in Southern California and has a major freeway project going on presently.
