Online Data

Our goal is helping you find your ancestors by placing data online for the FREE use of all researchers.
But we can't do it alone - We need your help with contributions of data: biographies, obituaries, birth, marriage, death and burial records.  Any small piece of data you contribute might be the missing puzzle piece in someone else's research.
We welcome your feedback, and of course, your data.

A Little About Fall River County

Fall River County is best adapted for stock-raising, and that important industry is being rapidly and successfully developed. The curative properties of the Dakota Hot Springs, which are located in the northeastern part of the county, are rendering that locality quite a resort for invalids, and it is predicted that their healing qualities will eventually give the region a world-wide reputation.

(from "Dakota", compiled by O. H. Holt, 1885)
