On This Date in Minnesota History: January 19

January 19, 1917 – Following a steady decline in the arrests since the Pennington County became dry three years ago, the number of Thief River Falls policemen has been decreased until there are only two members active in the department, the chief and one patrolman. The mayor decided no more were needed for the year.

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.
