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.

I am curious where you found the information on when he entered the service, and his death in 1918 in Iowa. I have looked for years - he was my husband's uncle.
Would appreciate any information. Please reply using my regular email address.

RE: Just an fyi
It sure would take a long time to get the ones you have done in the right places for yourself, but if you started to do it with the new ones you are doing now. I can always send you an edit on the ones I find in the cemeteries I work on to help you get them where you need them to be as I am going through a lot of this.

RE: Just an fyi
I still have the ones that don't have the edits done on them or that you kept. You just go down on the memorial towards the bottom, it says virtual cemetery. Click on that. You can create a name for the cemetery. You can show it, or you can have it just to where you see it. Then you click the little box in front of the cemetery. Hit save, then you can keep track of all of the memorials.

RE: Just an fyi
ok that is just my way of letting you know they are there. I am just doing what you had asked and sending what is being done on the edits of them. What you do with them after that is up to you. :) I hope you have them going into your virtual cemeteries as you are getting this so you can keep a track on where they are.

RE: Do you remember

That photo was taken at Fairburn. It is a small marker next to the white marker with the lamb on top of it. There is also a photo posted on the same page that shows a group with arrows pointing to the markers. The small square one is on the ground next to the larger white one.

RE: Do you remember
I don't remember taking that photo. Can you send me the memorial number or a link to the memorial with the photo I shot?
