Bio and Links
SPECIAL NOTE TO FIND-A-GRAVE MEMBERS: When I first started on Find-a-Grave, there were no record transfer capabilities and no family link features. I also had a lot more free time than I do now. Years later, when the family link and transfer features were added, I was suddenly hit with an overwhelming number of requests to make changes and to make transfers. Meanwhile, I was putting in more hours at work, making it extremely difficult for me to fulfill these requests. Now, I work at a place which has a shortage of employees, which makes my free time almost non-existent. Find-a-Grave has changed; and, my personal situation has also changed. I apologize to the people who have been waiting patiently for their requests to be fulfilled.

In the past, I have painstakingly attempted to insure the accuracy of the information I have submitted to Find-a-Grave. I no longer have the luxury of checking this information. Find-a-Grave has created a feature which allows people to submit edits (and for me to simply confirm them after reviewing them). I don't have the time to review them (and people are impatient for me to make the changes). So, I am forced to simply confirm them and to have faith in the people who have submitted them. It goes against my grain to do things in this way; but, I seem to have no choice in the matter. I still maintain exclusive editorial control over my own private GEDCOM; but as far as Find-a-Grave, I am forced to yield to changes which are forced upon me due to my own time constraints. Find-a-Grave is a public database; and if the submitted edits are inaccurate, I apologize. I have done my best.

PROFILE:
Brian Hass has lived in Beresford, SD since the late 1970's and has had an interest in genealogy since the late 1980's. Most of Brian's known ancestors are buried in Union County, South Dakota and Sioux County, Iowa. Brian's contributions to Findagrave include records for the graves and relatives and friends.

Brian Hass has also performed surveys of grave stone inscriptions at a number of local cemeteries and has submitted records for numerous other graves as well. Brian Hass' policy is to limit submitted grave records to those of marked graves that he has personally visited and to those of unmarked graves with citations of the information sources included. Brian Hass only submits grave records, marked or unmarked, for cemeteries he has personally visited.

The biographies submitted to Find-a-Grave by Brian Hass were composed by him, using information from sources such as obituaries. Brian does not submit transcriptions of obituaries to Find-a-Grave, partially to avoid potential copyright infringement issues.

Family-link, transfer, and other requests should be submitted through "Suggest a correction..." located under the "Edit" tab on the memorial. This eliminates a lot of guess work regarding which memorial should be edited.

Brian Hass appreciates any biographical and family-link information submitted to him by other contributors. Whenever possible and whenever time permits, Brian will attempt to verify this data by checking local microfilm records before adding it to the grave records. Because of time constraints due to his work schedule, Brian is not always able to do this immediately; so, patience is requested.

NOTE TO NEW FIND-A-GRAVE MEMBERS: When Find-a-Grave first started, family-links were not yet a feature of Find-a-Grave records. This is why so many of the records do not include these links.

Brian Hass makes contributions to Find-a-Grave on a completely voluntary basis. He does not work for Find-a-Grave; and, Brian's job sometimes prevents him from responding to Find-a-Grave requests and corrections as quickly as he would like. However, all requests and corrections sent to Brian are kept and appreciated; and, he intends to respond to all of them whenever time allows him to do so.

Hi Brian, I sent the complete birth and death dates for Clayton Sinclair #7340219 through edit but it wouldn't allow me to put the complete birth and death places on. They were the same: Prairie Township, Union, South Dakota, USA. This information is from the handwritten notebook kept by " The Honorable John "E" Sinclair" who served in the SD Legislature and was a prominent businessman in Beresford. He knew the value of keeping accurate records. I have yet to find an error in his notebooks. LOL I wish I could say the same about mine.
I will be entering the two Sinclair children who are buried on the same hill as Esther Scott Sinclair. I hope that doesn't cause too much consternation. However, their burials have been mentioned to me by more than one family member without prompting so I think it is time to add them.

I really do appreciate all you do for others. You are evidentally a very hard and dedicated worker for findagrave.com. Thank You!!!
Sincerely,
Dorothy Daskam Sargent (#47197822)

I spent some time at the cemeteries by Beresford last night looking for some personal info, a couple photo requests and photos of some older stones.

Thanks for the work on these cemeteries and for adding the various edits and the links I sent you. jfett

Solem Family Memorial in Romsdal Cemetery
Brian, I have for a couple of years requested transfer of the Solem families, buried in the Romsdal Cemetery, Norway Center, Lincoln, South Dakota. You did transfer a few, but have requested quite a few times for the transfer on the others, but haven't received the transfers. I sincerely appreciate all your time to enter so many of the Solem's. Now, I have given up on the transfers and have added the information via the rather new edit button. All now you have to do is look under the Edit button at the top of your profile and accept. I have spent more than a year researching this family and my information is accurate so kindly accept so the children can be connected to their parents and additional data added.

If for some reason you are unable to take care of this kindly let me know and I will write Find A Grave in hopes they can make the changes.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks for adding the memorials so much appreciated.

New edit option
Hi Brian:

I sent a few edit requests to you a while back. Can you possibly take a look at them for processing. Its much easier and quicker than the old fashioned way.

Thanks,
Roz
