Welcome to our Mellette County, South Dakota history and genealogy website.
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. Information that 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).

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to do research for individuals. However, information will be posted as fast as we can find, transcribe and/or receive it. We welcome your feedback and comments, and of course, your data contributions.

If you would like to be notified of our website updates, please join our mail list. Your information will not be used for any other purpose.
