Welcome to South Dakota Genealogy Trails

Welcome to


 McPherson County,

South Dakot




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

Email Us

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.
