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.

RE: Thanks for the
You are welcome. We all do it. Tricky situation here in Topeka. One of our police officers was shot and killed in a traffic stop. Now there are 2 memorials for him, built on the same day. Best not to say anything just yet.

RE: I am not sure
Would you mind explaining which memorial you are talking about? I do hundreds of corrections and are usually my direct relatives, if there is a problem am sure i can explain it to you, it does seem as tho you do not know these people we are talking would like to know her id number so I can find her memorial.

Thanks Ellen

Either you are extremely blunt or just plain rude, I don't know which. I don't NEED to do anything. However, I will delete the memorial because I don't believe in bunches of duplicated memorials.

RE: Yes, or I made
Thanks for checking it. I know sometimes the system hiccups and causes multiples. One poor woman had over 3,000 of the same memorial the other day! Crazy.

Rebecca Ann Merritt
Thanks for very quick response and the transfer
of Rebecca Ann Merritt. We took a trip from Iowa to review graves of my great grandfathers family in the Sturgis area. We have about 4 pages of history of Rebecca Ann living in Sturgis in 1877 when it was known as Scooptown prior to 1878 when Sturgis was founded.

Ronald Chyba Memorial
Thank you very much for the Ronald Chyba memorial, Ellen.
Ron was my guy from 1978 to 1984 when he lived in California.
I have fond memories of Ron and he will always be in my thoughts and heart.
