On This Date in Minnesota History: June 5

June 5, 1959 – “Bob Zimmerman graduated from high school in Hibbing, Minnesota [on this date]. Zimmerman was known as a greaser to classmates in the remote rural community because of his long sideburns and leather jacket.

“Soon, Zimmerman would be performing at coffee houses at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and later in Greenwich Village in New York City. He would also change his name to Bob Dylan.”

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 MNHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
