On This Date in Minnesota History: June 9

June 9, 1911 – A dense sand stormed raged through Anoka, Minn., this evening from 10:30 to 11:20. The sand was so thick that electric lights in the streets could be seen only a few feet. There was very little rain.

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.
