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.
My husband died in Sept and I am finally getting back to work on memorials and anything else that I can do.

RE: Thanks for
Ellen, there is not a general ban on posting obituaries, even from a newspaper. Findagrave does reserve the right to remove obituaries, but that is more to do with the living and family requests. Findagrave does ask that you post the publication and date.

RE: I have moved
Thanks so much! I left an automatic edit on the site of Robert Moody Wood to link him with his parents.

RE: I have moved
I now can't find Robert and Grace Wood. Can you message me their site numbers?
Added by Elkco on Oct 19, 2016 5:01 PM
RE: I have moved
That's probably a great idea if there is no proof where they might be buried. I am just glad they can be linked together. Thanks for all you do to promote family genealogies.

RE: I have moved
Thanks, Ellen! I am NOT connected to this family but was researching obits and and ran into the Wood family. Where you have placed Robert and his wife, Grace, makes sense to me, and I think it is very valid until we get proof otherwise. We just do the best we can to try to get these families linked together to help their families in the future..............thanks for all you do to promote family genealogies.

RE: Mmm what does
It means: should his name be spelled ANDREW. I have never come across anyone called Andew (no R), so I presume it is a typo?

I have been harrassed, maligned and stalked by a user named Anonaman that I see has also messaged you.
I have reported him through the find a grave support tab and hope that you do the same. From the messages I see , this is his typical mode.

RE: send

Thank you
