On This Date in Minnesota History: January 1

January 1, 1917 - This New Year’s Day began the fiftieth year of Minneapolis as an incorporated city. In 1867, when the population was not in excess of 10,000, the city was incorporated. Five years later the town of St. Anthony on the east side of the river, was combined with Minneapolis. Dorilus Morrison was the first mayor after the incorporation of 1867.

If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching  genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including:
census records,  birth records,  death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records.  I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
