On This Date in Minnesota History: February 9

February 9, 1887 - Melrose [Minn.] officially became a city on this date. “The vote to become a city was 125 for, 65 against. By that date, Melrose had been a village for 16 years and a community of white settlers for 23.”




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.
