I have been interested in genealogy since around 1998. I enjoy finding new information on family members. There seems to be be always another branch to research. I enjoy walking in the peaceful cemeteries as we seek for a long lost relative. If I have put a memorial on this website, I probably have photographed that cemetery. It is hard trying to find enough time in the day to put them all on here. So please request them and I will work on those names first. Currently I am working on Hamlin and Deuel Counties in South Dakota, but also have done a few in Brookings, Codington and Kingsbury Counties.

If I have any errors please let me know and I will correct it. For corrections, family links and transfers please use the edit button, because then it sends me a link to the page. I am willing to transfer family members upon request, if that such person is not related to any of my family.

The family names that I am researching are:
Brooks, Whitlock, Walker, Paulson, Lien, Baxter, Schaefer, Roeder, Papcke, Polzin, Nystrom, Norgaard, Simonson, Richards, Long, Burrows, Walsh and Dellamater / Delemarter, Kreger, Lenning, Buchholz.

A thank you for those family members who have helped me take photos of memorials. My Sister-in-law Marceen who did all of Lakewood Cemetery in Waubay, Bergen Cemetery in Codington County, and Mazeppa Cemetery in Grant County. She also helped with Lakeview in Clear Lake. A Huge Thank you to my Sister, Lynne Shada who has helped with many of the cemeteries, You traveled with me to many states, walked cemeteries with me, photographed stones, researched at many locations with me, also you were my typist. You typed so many family stories, obituaries and such. Lynne, you are in our thoughts and hearts, we miss you greatly. Please stop and leave her a flower if you get the time.

I try to leave memorial flowers on all my family members and others for the date of birth and death. It seems to leave a personal touch to each individual. If you visit any of my relatives please leave a flower for them.

Could you provide any additional information on these 2 who are buried at the Castlewood Cemetery in Hamlin Co South Dakota? I requested a photo of the grave monuments but I would like to know if they are buried next to each other. Trying to determine if they are father and son. Do you have a contact name for a cemetery caretaker that could research the burial records? Thanks for all your Findagrave work! Carol Lombardo

Thank you for Schimming photos
Thanks so much for doing the photos of the markers for Clarence and Leanora Schimming in Canby Cemetery about a week and a half ago--I was in such a frenzy getting ready for Mother's Day that I forgot to respond to the email from Find A Grave saying they were done. Clarence Schimming was my Mother's 2nd cousin. Except for Clarence, four generations of the family were buried in Minneapolis. But Leanora, who was his fourth wife, was from Canby, so he ended up being buried there, and since I don't have a car, I had little hope of getting there. So I really appreciate you doing this, and so quickly!

Hello !
There must be a mistake in your memorial 93176569 since the person was married and had children, yet died at eleven years old...

Thank you so much for taking this photograph. I had no phone number for cemetery so was unable to get a more exact location, so, I really appreciate your efforts. He is not linked to other family members, because his link to my family is his wife. Judy Muck

You have put on duplicates for William and Rosanna Boyle in Mt. Calvary cemetery West Union, Iowa.You put them on a year after someone else. Thought you should be made aware.
