On This Date in Minnesota History: June 6

June 6, 1945“A horrifying multiple-murder by Robert Doan of Mahtowa [Minn.] - he killed his wife and four children. He ‘lost his temper’ after being fired from his job as a bulldozer operator at Duluth's Williamson-Johnson Municipal Airport that was followed by an argument with his wife. He was sentenced to life in prison.”


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.
