Welcome to South Dakota Genealogy Trails

Shannon 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.

We're very sorry, but until we get volunteers to join our group as hosts, there is no one to answer your research questions on this county. When we come across data pertaining to this county, we will add that data to this sites.
We don't have access to any records otherwise and cannot help you do your research.
Until then, Best of Luck!
