Our Genealogy Helper for Bullhead ...

We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:

  • That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
  • That it also helps us to understand the community in which our ancestors lived, the community that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about Bullhead (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us an insight into their world.

As we add data and organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Bullhead. While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.

It's still very early in our research, but as we gather more information it will be added to this page.

Neighboring Counties ...

When searching for family records, we have frequently made the mistake of not checking the neighboring counties.

For example, we have great-grandparents who lived in the northeast corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors were in the next county to the east. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the north.

So when searching for records, we had our best success by looking in neighboring counties instead of the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the east contained birth and death records; the county to the north contained their burial records. If we hadn't included the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

If you're in a similar situation, we hope that the following information helps.

Bullhead is located in Corson County.

To see how the shape of South Dakota's counties have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.

The following counties adjoin and form the boundaries of Corson County: Sioux (ND), Campbell, Dewey, Perkins, Walworth & Ziebach.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Bullhead. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bullhead

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bullhead. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.7656, Longitude: -101.0807       In this case, the coordinates for Bullhead have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
