Let's face it --- I'm not a "genealogist". I don't have the time nor patience to do the serious research that most of you do to find that missing puzzle piece, the elusive ancestor, etc.  I prefer to share, via this and my Hand County, South Dakota site, info which I hope will be YOUR missing puzzle piece...or to post a photo of your elusive ancestor, or at least one of his or her tombstone!

Having said that, I DO have some material for my own family I'd like to share with you. The
Bingham, Kenyon, Siegling & Mast families were all early Hand County, (Dakota Territory) South Dakota settlers, having arrived from Germany, Switzerland, England - Connecticut, New York, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa... just as Horace Greeley said: "Go West Young Man!"

Perhaps some of my own cousins - upteen-times-removed will find a photo, an obit or tombstone photo, or "who-knows-what" that he or she has been looking for. 

For those of you looking for other Hand county families, check out the tons of surnames, photos, sorted birth records, township maps, newspaper extractions, obits, cemetery transcriptions, tombstone photos, old high school yearbook indexes and photos, etc. on my Hand County, South Dakota pages - (see link). I've  included resources for the surrounding counties of Hyde, Spink & Beadle.  Good luck! * CSR *!
