Our goal is helping you find your ancestors by placing data online for the FREE use of all researchers. 
We need help with contributions of your data, history and stories to make this a great site for research.  Everything is helpful: Obituaries, Biographies, Marriage/Birth/Death/Burial records, County History data, etc. Any of the "raw" data YOU used to build your family tree.

Information will be posted as fast as we can find, type and/or receive it.  We welcome your feedback and comments, and of course, your data contributions

Aurora County, named for the Roman goddess of the dawn, was created by the South Dakota legislature on Feb. 22, 1879, and

organized in 1881 when three county commissioners were appointed.  The county commission first met on Aug. 29, 1881, and

named Plankinton the county seat, an act which was ratified by voters in November 1882.
