On This Date in Minnesota History: June 19

June 19, 1869 – “Duluth Minnesotian newspaper ran an advertisement ‘3000 Laborers Wanted on the Lake Superior and Mississippi railroad….10,000 immigrants wanted…’”

Yes Virginia, there was a time when we appreciated immigrants!

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.
