On This Date in Minnesota History: May 8

May 8, 1998 – “The tobacco industry agreed to pay $6.6 billion to settle a suit with the state of Minnesota as the state's lawsuit was about to go to a jury. The settlement included restrictions on sales and marketing with payments spread over 25 years. Minnesota became the fourth state to settle with the tobacco industry over the costs of treating smoking-related illnesses.”


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.
