On This Date in Minnesota History: March 5

March 5, 1853 - By an act of the Legislature, Sibley County was established on this date. It “was named in honor of General Henry Hastings Sibley, pioneer, governor and military defender of Minnesota.”

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.
