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: Rose Marie O'Rourke Lester
Oops sorry Ellen was thinking of my mother. Hoping you would transfer #87751833 to me #47811903. She is my aunt. Hope this is the info you asked for as I am not very good at this sort of thing.

Thank you Terry Lester

I remember Pat at the University of S. Dak. As I recall, she was a member of Alpha Phi sorority. She was on the USD homecoming court, and may have been homecoming queen. Her husband was a fraternity brother of mine, Lambda Chi Alpha, and his name is Thomas (Tom) Adam. Cheers~~

Thanks for the transfer!
Thank you very much for transferring Dorothy Harrison's memorial to me. It was very gracious of you, and so fast!

I received your e-mail scolding me for not having any way for people to contact me. I'm not the greatest at technology so why don't you tell me how to correct this problem and I will. You requested in your e-mail "please use your e-mail for a reply", which I thought I had because I got Your e-mail.

RE: It is EDIT
Thank you Ellen. That was the problem. I send you the screen shot from my phone. That transfer option only appears on full site. Now I know.

RE: It is EDIT
Ellen. I have done exactly that, but no option is coming up in that drop down menu that applies. I can screen shot it to show it to you. Very frustrating! I could transfer a memorial to you easy. I think the transfer memorial option comes up for you, not me...
