MINER County South Dakota Genealogy

Newspapers that I own.

I will be more than willing to do lookups in the rolls of newspapers that I have listed below. In August 2007, I received from Bill Feller copies of the Miner County Pioneer. I would like to give Bill a big "THANK YOU" for donating his copies, so that we might be able to help others find their family. If you would like a look-up please put in the subject line "Miner County Lookup". When you request a lookup, please advise the name of the person, event, and approximate time period. Mail your request to: Lynette Trainer


On this page are links to the various newspapers for Miner County. This is a very large project so please be patient as it will take some time to get all the local information transcripted to the website. The various articles will include such information as births, death, marriage, divorce, adoption, visitors to Miner County, and all the local happenings for the community. If you find what you are looking for, email me and I will be happy to send you a copy. Have fun discovering your ancestors in the local newspapers. Click on the issue you would like to search.
