On This Date in Minnesota History: June 7

June 7, 1900 – “Virginia [Minn.] was destroyed [for the second time] by fire. After this fire, commercial buildings on Chestnut Street were required to be made of brick, stone or concrete. It was rebuilt and became the largest town north of Duluth.”

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.
