On This Date in Minnesota History: May 22

May 22, 1912“The Nopeming Sanatorium was opened for tuberculosis patients [on this date] about 10 miles from Duluth originally on about 270 acres of land bordering the St. Louis River valley. No pe ming, an Ojibwe word, was suggested by Rev. Frank Piquette of Sawyer meaning ‘out in the woods’ or ‘in the forest.’ St. Louis County Board of Commissioners voted September 13, 2005, to sell it. Nopeming Care Center closed in 2002.”

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.
