Bio and Links
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.

Beresford Cemetery
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.

Remember Them Always
I was just wondering if you are still active with Find-A-Grave? I'd like to put some edits in but don't want to waste my time if you are no longer active/able to update the memorials. Thanks!

If you don't post obituaries maybe you can transfer a memorial to me when I makea request and then I will post it and then you can have the memorial back.

Hi Brian,

I just wanted to thank you for posting the pictures of my brother, mom and dad.

Also... a big thanks for the kind words you left for Mark. We were going through so much at the time of his death it was hard to understand everything. I enjoy hearing what others thought of him.

Thanks again.
Ann Lind
