ON This Date in Minnesota History: March 29

March 29, 1900 – A special election for the incorporation of Truman, Minn., passed 65 to 10 on this date.1 The railway village was named for Truman Clark, son of J. T. Clark, who was then the second vice president of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha railway company.2

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.
