On This Date in Minnesota History: July 6

July 6, 1974 – “Garrison Keillor made his 1st live [radio] broadcast of 'A Prairie Home Companion' from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minn. In 2003 the show drew some 3.9 million listeners weekly. The show ended in 1987 and resumed in New York in 1989. It returned to Minnesota in 1993.”

Keillor’s last radio show was taped July 1, 2016, in Los Angeles and broadcast on NPR July 2, 2016.

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.
