On This Date in Minnesota History: September 29

Sept. 29, 1955 – Arctic and Antarctic explorer Ann Bancroft was born in St. Paul on this date. Bancroft “was the first woman to reach the North Pole on foot and by sled.  She was also the first woman to cross both polar ice caps to reach the North and South Poles, as well as the first woman to ski across Greenland.”

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.
