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: Rod I can't delete
You have entered the same memorial two different times. One in Saint Peters in Clay county and one in Saint Johns in Union County. One of the memorials needs to be eliminated.

I have to be careful about adding new obits as I have two individuals who are going through all my memorials, one by one.

Cornelia Rodee

I submitted an edit for "Cornelius J Rodee" to be "Cornelia S Rodee" just wanted to let you know I got the info from the South Dakota Historical Society website, not to mention the wife of Hiram is much more likely to be Cornelia and not Cornelius.
Here is the site I got it from (typed in "Rodee" for last name), just in case you want to verify:

Thank you for moving him. I am sure he is in the correct cemetery now.
There were some others in Mount Zion Cemetery. Do you think that they may also belong to Skrefsrud Lutheran Church Cemetery?? Where did you originally get the names?? The duplicates were all in the Skrefsrud Lutheran Church Cemetery. Do you think that there are others in the wrong cemetery??
THANK YOU for putting him in the correct cemetery.
Have a great day.

RE: fag has no cemetery
Have you tried "begin new search" on the left with the name of one of the memorials you had to see if you can find the names that way at the cemetery.
I am sorry for all of the confusion. I think part of the problem came about when they call the cemetery Lutheran in the name.
Thank you for all of your hard work you have and will do to help find a grave. Please don't just delete your memorials. Some memorials you made have more information than the ones in Skrefsrud Lutheran Church Cemetery. I am sure they would like the additional information you have.
I am so sorry for all of the confusion. It happened before I got involved in find a grave.
If I can help you with memorials in SD, please let me know. I am sorry I was not able to describe how to move the memorials easily. So things are easier to do than others.

RE: fag has no cemetery
Daniel Danielson is already in the correct cemetery so you can delete yours or go to the person who ownes it in the correct cemetery. I do not manage any memorials for Daniel Danielson. A couple of others are also in the wrong cemetery and are duplicates of others in the correct cemetery. I will try to look over the memorials in the cemetery better and leave a message on the memorial. You will need a little patience in the sorting. Mount Zion Cemetery is within a mile of Turner County, but is actually in Lincoln County. I am trying to work with find a grave to get the situation sorted out.
Please have patience with me while I try to get this sorted out. I have not done much with cemetery location corrections.

RE: fag has no cemetery
Which memorial are you wanting to move??
You can move cross counties, but you need to know the right cemetery to move it to.

RE: Claymore Family Cemetery
I'm traveling but when I get home I will check this out further and see if I can get anything done. The funeral home never responded to me so I still don't know exactly where the Sioux County Claymore Family Cemetery.
