On This Date in Minnesota History: February 14

February 14, 1967 - Voters approve a proposal to incorporate the township Woodbury as a village on this date. This move was initiated by the Jaycees, led by its president, Stanley Olander and its director of government affairs Craig Jilk. The Jaycees promoted their proposal by stating that, “Woodbury needs and deserves a form of government which can handle the inevitable problems of growth.” The Woodbury Bulletin reported that “Most remember the transition from town to village as a smooth one.”

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.
