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: I created the Dilts
Get over yourself and quit telling other people west to do when you misinterpret what someone said. "Please remove" is not a commandment!

Anna Irene Iverson Stenerson
I have submitted changes for the parents of Anna Stenerson 176295953. She is the sister of Arthur Iverson. Arthur's daughter is a friend of mine. She appreciates how quickly you got Anna's Find A Grave memorial on line.

Also some months ago you looked up an obituary for me for the Iverson family.

Always appreciate the work you do on Find A Grave

Thanks Ellen - I have done that.

I kinda quit doing the obits after I saw some of the comments about them from some people on Find A Grave. But I think you are right about how to do it.

Best wishes!
