I have been interested in genealogy since around 1998. I enjoy finding new information on family members. There seems to be be always another branch to research. I enjoy walking in the peaceful cemeteries as we seek for a long lost relative. If I have put a memorial on this website, I probably have photographed that cemetery. It is hard trying to find enough time in the day to put them all on here. So please request them and I will work on those names first. Currently I am working on Hamlin and Deuel Counties in South Dakota, but also have done a few in Brookings, Codington and Kingsbury Counties.

If I have any errors please let me know and I will correct it. For corrections, family links and transfers please use the edit button, because then it sends me a link to the page. I am willing to transfer family members upon request, if that such person is not related to any of my family.

The family names that I am researching are:
Brooks, Whitlock, Walker, Paulson, Lien, Baxter, Schaefer, Roeder, Papcke, Polzin, Nystrom, Norgaard, Simonson, Richards, Long, Burrows, Walsh and Delamater / Delemarter, Kreger, Lenning, Buchholz.

A thank you for those family members who have helped me take photos of memorials. My Sister-in-law Marceen who did all of Lakewood Cemetery in Waubay, Bergen Cemetery in Codington County, and Mazeppa Cemetery in Grant County. She also helped with Lakeview in Clear Lake. A Huge Thank you to my Sister, Lynne Shada who has helped with many of the cemeteries, You traveled with me to many states, walked cemeteries with me, photographed stones, researched at many locations with me, also you were my typist. You typed so many family stories, obituaries and such. Lynne, you are in our thoughts and hearts, we miss you greatly. Please stop and leave her a flower if you get the time.

I try to leave memorial flowers on all my family members and others for the date of birth and death. It seems to leave a personal touch to each individual. If you visit any of my relatives please leave a flower for them.

I'm entering a Donna M born Aug 11, 1949 and passed Nov 13, 1975. Do you know anything about her?

Thank you for so many thoughtful and kind hearted visits you have made to my loved ones. You have such a generous and giving heart, one not a stranger to sorrow and grief. My heart reaches out to you for your loss of loved ones, especially your dear niece, Katelin. We had heard about her sudden and tragic death here in the news and I felt such sorrow and sympathy for all who loved her and missed her so. Know there are those who continue to send you love and prayers. God bless.

Ira Albert Crawford
Hello, L Nystrom. About a month ago I added the links for what I thought was parents of this Ira, but when I went to the cemetery, I found that our Ira Crawford was buried across the road from George and Justina, his parents. So I was in error when I posted the links for his parents on your Ira Crawford. When I tried to edit and delete the parent links, they were rejected as "conflicting with our information", so I would like to resubmit the change and ask that you allow it. Since George and Justin are not the parents of your Ira Albert Crawford. Thanks!

Sorry! I hit enter instead of tab!
I wish we had the option to delete a post here!

I've noticed you made the Memorials for some of my Gerber relatives in Hoven SD. Names of Dreis, Kaiser, Schumacher etc. Have we visited before?? It seems we have, but I don't see a post from me here. Just want to THANK you for all of your great work, and also to ask where you get your incredible moving icons you leave on some pages! I've only seen the virtual flower page, but so many have beautiful images...just wondering where/how to get them! Also, Anna Schaefer was my GGpa Mathias Gerber's wife's name. They got married May 13, 1879 at St. John's Church in Johnsburg, I'm assuming those Schaefer's are from that area. I can't find anything about her family, so far, I we would REALLY like to know more about her branch. Do you have anything from there? I believe Johnsburg is south of Adams,MN before you get into Iowa. I'm not sure if it's even a town, anymore, but would assume they have a cemetery. Have you searched for Schaefers there?! I'll try to check it out, also!

Thank You for the pretty token that you left on my brothers page for his Angel Day and the many other visits that you have taken time to do. It is appreciated more than words can express.
