In June, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the South Dakota Comprehensive
Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties
in South Dakota, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the
databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were
found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.
At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the
collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
The person responsible for this county is James Lynch.
