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.

Can you please link my sister, Linda Jane Krystek [Find-a-Grave Memorial #:138730218] to James P. Krystek, Sr. who is my father and hers. She passed away in Oct. 29, 2014 and she was cremated. He had a brother Stanley Richard Krystek, Sr. who passed away on April 9, 2016. I will contact you again with a memorial number on him when I get one.

RE: I do not know what
Can you add the following information on his page

Basil Leo Rogers is son to Shepard "Shep" Shurman Rogers... he is listed in the 1910 US census.

He is my great grandfather born in 1898 and died in 1951.

for some reason there is no page on their gravesite...

His spouse Verna Maria Peters lived from 1900 to 1990 and died in Huron SD.

She is also not listed on

White Eyes Memorial Cemetery
I think he is suppose to be in this cemetery from what I read Holy Fellowship Cemetery

Charles Mix County
South Dakota USA

I think that is where his memorial is - what am I missing Ellen. Be glad to correct it.

RE: I do not know what to do
I went and checked the Saint Margaret's for the other Mateickas pictures and they were all there except Roberts- so I added that picture. So I think it is all good! The mystery of the missing Mateickas in Kimball is solved! Thank you for being a fellow volunteer-- your work is much appreciated.
