I want to connect with other people in the genealogy world. However, if you add me to your circles and I can't tell that you have an interest in genealogy ... chances are that I won't add you back and will likely block you altogether.

Apparently, cornhusking was big news in South Dakota in October 1941.  I almost wonder if West Side Story had been set in South Dakota, would the “rumble” involve competitive cornhusking?  “When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way, from your first ear…
