Welcome to

Day County

South Dakot






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.

If you would like to be notified when this site is updated, please join our mailing list

Your email address will remain private, and only be used for notification of updates.

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



This site is in need of a host.

If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us!  Get the details on our Volunteer Page.
