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: Good to see you back
I understand that. It seems like the contributors for SD kind of fell apart all at the same time. You being gone, Beth and I being sick, Don passing away, and then I was looking and others were just not even doing them for here. It is going to be a chore to catch them all up but one good thing is that they are still going to be there since no one seems to be doing them. lol

Good to see you back
Glad you are back and hoping you will get a lot of what has been missed caught back up in the area. I know there are some out there that are relatives that are Schell's that I have not yet been able to get to and don't think they have been done at all. I have tried to keep up with things but sure wasn't doing a good job of it. So glad that you are around and can start keeping up on things again. :)

The Sampsills are my Aunt, Uncle and cousins. The kids went to Cleghorn school not Meadowbrook School. I have no contact info for the surviving son.
