This week’s blogging prompt is the State of South Dakota. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to South Dakota. If you don’t have any connections to South Dakota, find a South Dakota resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 10/6/2013 – 10/12/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
I have not been able to find any family ties to South Dakota, so I highlight one genealogical resource for this state. The South Dakota State Historical Society has a wonderful collection of online records for the genealogist. Below are a few of those collections.
- Cemetery Records : search for your ancestors in South Dakota Cemeteries
- Newspaper Collection : research your ancestor in newspapers.
- 1885 Civil War Veteran Census : find your civil war veterans in an 1885 civil war veteran census
If you have ancestors to South Dakota, be sure to check out these resources.
