I began using this website as research tool for a photo essay on historic cemeteries in the Black Hills of South Dakota. I have found, in the process, that being a photo volunteer is quite fulfilling.
I love being helpful for those who are seeking photos of their ancestors/relatives headstones. It's quite satisfying knowing that you have done something to give someone else a sense of peace, a smile, closure. In addtion I continue to document the interment aspects of local history.
RE: Metamora Well I looked at that 1910 census, and I don't see any blood relationship between Franklin and Sylvester, but they were working the same farm togeather, that's all, sorry I can't tell you anymore
RE: Duck Creek/South Dakota If you are coming on 71 from Hot Springs there is a road on the left hand side of 71. You are going to see the cemetery before you see the road because the road is past the cemetery. Just before you see the cemetery is a road on the right hand side and then the next road is the one to the cemetery on the left. If you come to what used to be the government experimental farm on the right or into Ardmore then you have gone too far. I hope this helps you find it. If you cannot find it, let me know and my dad can give me better directions.
