My Story

My name is Cheryl (Esche) Herrig-Ness. I live in Brookings, South Dakota. I began researching my family history about 20 years ago after my children were born. It has been a fascinating journey, and I have gathered a significant amount of information about my family lines. If I had not started gathering information from the elder family members when I did, much of it would have been lost when they passed on. I am sincerely grateful that they humored me and told me what they knew. I am not accustomed to talking about myself so doing this personal page is difficult. I much prefer stalking/researching my ancestors' lives and writing about them.

My email address is:
