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 myself a scribe of the cemeteries, they are waiting for family , friends or whoever knows about the person and can do a bio to take edit control of them from me. I do not hoard memorials and I am more than willing to transfer to people who ask.
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.

There is no edit option to suggest a cemetery change on the edit tab, although I wish there was one. (There is one if you control the memorial only.)

I was able to verify that Pauline is buried next to her husband, Edwin, in Zion Lutheran Cemetery by Delmont, SD rather than the Delmont City Cemetery. I have a headstone picture that I will add, probably this weekend yet. I entered Edwin, so I have done an edit to link them as spouses.

RE: Tell me
Hi Ellen,

Thank you for responding. This is what I would like to add where the BIO information is.

"The given name for this child is John Silbernagel. He passed away in the spring of 1921. His name has been verified with the St John Catholic Church records in Zeeland ND. His parents were verified with the Sacred Heart Cemetery records."

Thank you again. I did request that parental links be added but do not see that it has happened yet.
