On This Date in Minnesota History: June 22

June 22, 2013 – After two days of high winds and heavy rains, it was a water main break near one of the main intersections in downtown Robbinsdale, Minn.–42nd Avenue and Highway 81–that caused a 20 foot deep, 20 yard wide sinkhole. The 36-inch pipe that broke had been put in place in 1963.

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.
