Welcome to South Dakota Genealogy Trails


Welcome to


Bon Homme County


South Dakota


Our goal is helping you find your ancestors by placing data online for the Free use of all researchers. 
We want to hear about you and the history of your ancestors. 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 (rather than the tree or gedcom itself)

  As data becomes available, we put it online on its corresponding county's page.  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.

I'm sorry, we are unable to perform personal research for you.

This County is available for adoption!

If you have a love of history and genealogy, enjoy helping people, and have a basic knowledge of web authoring, consider joining us!  Visit our Volunteer Information page to learn more.

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.
