About the South Dakota GenWeb Project
- In June, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the South Dakota
Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single
entry point for all counties in South Dakota, where collected databases
would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked,
so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they
could be located in the index.
At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the
collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the
web page. The person responsible for this county Mary Buchholz. If
you could possibly volunteer to help with this page, please contact
County Library will also help with look-ups.
