Since I return to Miner Co. on a regular basis, I have the opportunity to visit the local cemeteries. I usually take my camera. So unless fairly recent, almost all gravestones in the county have been photographed and posted on www.southdakotagravestones.org
. In SD, there are over 205,000 gravestone records, taken form over 155,000 photos. In Miner Co, there are over 7,800 records from almost 6,000 photos. So if you have any relatives buried in Miner Co, you should be able to see the gravestones on the website.
The overall national project is called Gravestone Photo Project, but is better known by the individual state names, now about 35 strong and growing fast. Last year about this time I believe there were only 23 states in the project.
Spread the good news.
