On This Date in Minnesota History: September 1

September 1, 1851 - Cass County was created on this date by the legislature of the Minnesota Territory. However, it was not formally organized until 1897. Cass County was formed from portions of Dakota, Mahkatah, Pembina and Wahnata Counties. The county was named in honor of Lewis Cass, a governor of the Michigan Territory, an American ambassador and a U.S. Senator representing Michigan.,_Minnesota

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.
