If Hosting isn't for you, you can still support our efforts.

 

We need data - chances are, you have obituaries; birth, marriage and death records; biographies, etc. - RAW data you used to create your family tree.  Please consider contributing those materials.  Anything contributed will remain YOUR property, will be credited to you, and will be promptly removed, should you ever request it.

We need help transcribing as well.  Email Me if you have contributions, or can help transcribe materials.

A Little About Bennett County
Although created in 1909, Bennett County, previously part of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, remained a part of Fall River County until its organization in 1912, when its first board of county commissioners was elected on April 27.  In November 1912, the town of Martin was chosen as the county seat.
