On This Date in Minnesota History: August 17

August 17, 1920 – Norwegian emigrant and Stillwater [Minn.] citizen Gustav A. Lund receives a patent for his new padlock. The lock [was cylindrical] in shape with a ‘slit-shaped key hole in one end.’" He received patent #1349682.


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.
