Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a local historian in Rapid City SD, I specialize in finding where people are buried, I have many readings of cemeteries in Western South Dakota I hope post them on this site.
I have a vast number of cemetery readings and obituaries that I am putting on site, I also am a volunteer to look up obits for people, please contact me if you need help in the Rapid City area.
I don't go too far to do pictures, I don't go to Fall River County to do pictures too far away, some places in Pennington are too far away.
I consider my self a scribe of the cemeteries, they are waiting for family , friends or who ever knows about the person and can do a bio to take edit control of them from me.
Don't put obits up where pictures should be, ask me to transfer so you can do the memorial the right way, only so many pictures can go up and using an obit that way is wrong!
Please, please just send your number on edit to ask for transfer that is the only way I want to do it, it so much easier that way.
If anyone has memorials in South Dakota they can no longer manage, please consider transferring them to me, I would be glad to have them.

RE: I was in the process
Thanks, Ellen. I just happened to be updating my tree. Though a rather distant relative, I recall family telling me of the loss of the little one. Thanks for your good work at FindAGrave. - Melva

The stone was there in 2008. If you look at the picture which I assume you haven't yet, there is no death date at that time

Tickled to find him. Hoping to find his 1/2 brother William H Chubb in the same area. Thanks for all of your hard work.

Don't go out of your way. Thank you, it's not necessary.
