Dorothy Tues Jan 26, 1999   John Clementson Klave was my step-ggrandfather who lived most of his adult life in or around Elk Point, but while discussing statehood, he spent some time in Yankton.

Kate Andrews Sat May 10 21:38 1997 In 1881 Otto Nicholas BYE and his wife Ragnild BYE came to join siblings Sarah and Ole KJELDSETH from Norway who had come to Yankton, South Dakota in 1870. Through some kind assistance from people in Norway, I have a goodly amount of research on these families. Some names that have married into these lines include Gieger Olsen Lund Thomas Schultz Moore I am aware that thier are still Cousins of mine in the Gayville area and that there is likely to be others that I do not know about. I would be happy to share my windfalls with others. I haven't gotten so far as to get a web page for family history so any queries need to be addressed to be and should include either the Bye or Kjeldseth name in the subject line.

Looking for any decendents of Kealer's, Yankton Souix clan.

Earl Rook Tue Aug 20 06:24:30 1996 I am researching the KIPP family in South Dakota. Specifically, I would like to know how to go about requesting patient information/records from the old Yankton State Hospital. My great grandmother, Susan BAUMAN KIPP died there and, because mental health problems seem to run in the family, I would very much like to obtain medical information on her condition. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. I don't even have an address for the institution, or the holder of its records if a different institution. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
