On This Date in Minnesota History: July 10

July 10, 1940 – Patty Berg, well-known Minneapolis golfer, became a “pro” on this date when she signed a six-year contract with a Chicago sporting goods company. Her duties will include visits to colleges and high schools across the country for exhibitions and instruction clinics. It is estimated she will make approximately $7,500 annually.

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.
