On This Date in Minnesota History: February 21

February 21, 1912 – While Rev. Frank Doran was is in St. Paul attending the Hamline conference this evening, thieves entered his study at the Central Methodist Church in Winona by breaking the latch of a window. They ransacked his study and the interior of the church, forcing open a number of mission collection boxes and Sunday school bank. The thieves secured a considerable amount of money; the total of which is unknown.

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.
