On This Date in Minnesota History: March 21

March 21, 2005This morning 16-year-old Jeffrey Weise (Ojibwe) killed his grandfather and his grandfather’s girlfriend. Taking his grandfather's police weapons and vest, Weise drove his police vehicle to Red Lake Senior High School, where he had been a student some months before.

He shot and killed seven people at the school, beginning with an unarmed security guard at the entrance, and wounded five others. The dead included a teacher and five students. Weise exchanged gunfire with police who quickly arrived at the school; after being wounded, he committed suicide in a vacant classroom.

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.
