On This Date in Minnesota History: July 25

July 25, 1862 – “A war meeting is held in Stillwater to raise volunteers in response to the Union’s desperate cry for reinforcements. Although scores of young men from Washington County had already enlisted in Union Forces, many more answer this call, and five new regiments, the Sixth through the Tenth, are formed.”

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.
