Custer County, SD Birth, Death, Marriage, Divorce Records
Qualified and properly identified family members may acquire post-July 1905 Custer County vital records at the Register of Deeds. For older birth records, see the South Dakota Department of Health searchable database. Custer County marriage records begin in 1890; there are few other vital records before 1905. The county's early history is the story of gold's discovery in the Black Hills. In 1874, General George Custer led an expedition to the Black Hills, investigating rumors of gold ore. Once gold was found, Custer spread the word; the gold rush began despite federal efforts to exclude Whites from Indian territory. The county was created in 1875.
