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 to 1937.Marriages and deaths are all inclusive with
births stopping at 31 Dec 1930.These microfilmed records were compiled in a
confusing manner making it difficult to always match a person to a 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
andReg-Y = Family Register Yankton.The
early records are written in 1800s script-style German, which presented a challenge for transcribing.The records are 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 a part
of a for-profit publication.
