Welcome !
This database was created by extracting the data from Concordia Historical Institute's Microfilm #1828.  This microfilm contains the combined records of the Lutheran churches of Rosenberg, Walshtown, and Yankton, South Dakota from approximately 1882-1937.  Marriages and deaths are all inclusive with births stopping at 31 December, 1930.  These microfilmed records were compiled in a confusing manner making it difficult to always match a person to a specific church.  The Record Type is indicated with the following abbreviations:

B = Birth/Baptism;
C = Confirmation;
Com - Communion;
M = Marriage;
D = Death/Burial
Reg - Family Register church unclear
Reg. R = Family Register Rosenberg
Reg. W = Family Register Walshtown
Reg. Y = Family Register Yankton

The early records are written in 1800's script-style German, which presented a challenge for transcribing.  The records were transcribed “as-is” in the German spelling (Heinrich not Henry) and sometimes as a “best guess.”  This database may not be reproduced in full or in part as part of a for-profit publication.  Copyright -  Gloria Dettleff 2001
