On This Date in Minnesota History: May 3

May 3, 1959“Crowds were on the Duluth piers when the merchant vessel Ramon de Larrinaga passed under the Aerial Bridge, the first up-bound ship to traverse the newly opened St. Lawrence Seaway. The British-registered vessel loaded grain at the Peavey and Cargill elevators before departing for Montreal and a voyage across the North Atlantic.”



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.
