On This Date in Minnesota History: April 5

April 5, 1968 – “After the April 4 assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., a crowd of nearly 500 young people and students attended a memorial outside of Coffman and then marched across the Washington Avenue bridge to Minneapolis City Hall. The march blocked two lanes of traffic on the bridge, and the crowd had moments of silence and five kneel-ins along the route at various intersections to commemorate the death of the civil rights leader.”1




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.
