Newspaper   Extractions

Scads and scads of genealogical data taken from old newspapers. Well worth your time.

Last updated   Jan 9 2012

Part of my job at the Chamberlain-Oacoma Register was extracting genealogical data old newspapers and  I am now sharing it with Internet genealogists. Data is condensed, but the basics are here. Some Brule County data is included since many Lyman County residents use the mortuary, cemeteries, etc., across the Missouri River in Brule County 

If, after you have checked all of the files I have published on this site for your free use,   you feel you need additional help for  research, contact me

Codes:   b - born;    d - diedf - final proof on homestead;  g - general stuff (odds & ends);  m - married;   son/dau - born or died.

 Guaranteed to make your head spin, but  well worth the surf.

Some may take a while to open.
