The Brookings Area Genealogical Society obituary committee has now completed the indexes of obituaries extracted from the Brookings County Press and the Brookings Register.  Earliest date is 1879, when the Brookings County Press began publishing.  There are nine volumes: 1879- 1909; 1910-1929; 1930-1939; 1940-1949; 1950-1959; 1960-1969; 1970-1979; 1980-1989; and 1990-1999, (2000-2007 is being added). Information is believed to be accurate but not guaranteed.  There are over 42,935 names listed in the complete set.  A set of the nine volumes is available to the public in the South Dakota Historical Room at the Brookings Public Library.  Clippings and an alphabetized list for the years 2000-2004 are also available at the library.  Volumes can be purchased for each plus shipping and handling.
