On this Date in Minnesota History: September 2

September 2, 1924 – “Spectators -- 13,000 of them -- packed the [Martin County fairgrounds in Fairmont] in a massive rally when 1,100 Ku Klux Klan members from all over the Midwest came to initiate 400 Minnesota candidates as members of the KKK.”


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.
