On This Date in Minnesota History: January 29

January 29, 1955 – “Minnesota defeated Purdue, 59-56, in six overtimes, making the game the longest [basketball] contest in Big Ten history. The Boilermakers nearly clinched an upset over the 14th-ranked Golden Gophers, who entered the contest leading the Big Ten; however, Dick Garmaker paced Minnesota with 18 points for the win. The Golden Gophers would clinch another overtime win that season, when Illinois took them to two extra periods one game later.”,r:0,s:0,i:81


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.
