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 did delete
I follow the suggestions of the Find A Grave administration. So apparently they think contributors need to hear that.

RE: I did delete
Ellen The memorial number tells which memorial was entered first. Find A Grave does allow entry of a memorial without a cemetery location so it is best to do a search first. I always search by first & last name and the year of death. I include "This memorial should be deleted." because that is what Find A Grave admin. recommended, so I will continue to do that.

Thank you for posting the newspaper clipping on Helen's memorial. I just found it today. Your work with find A Grave has been helpful on a number of family memorials. I very much appreciate it.

Transfer of Romaine Price
Thank you for the transfer, and thank you for the work you do in the SD area. The Price side of my family had a big presence in Rapid City in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many, including my mother, are buried in Mountain View Cemetery.

RE: Thank you for telling
There is no memorial for her parents. As soon as I find the correct cemetery for them, I will get them listed. I've got a few messages out for leads to their burial.

In memory of Scott
William Young
So sorry, I should have added that Paul Young # 20538200 seems to be his father. The mother's obit also makes mention of her infant son, William Francis in 1951.

Again so sorry I wasn't clearer.
