On This Date in Minnesota History: October 10

October 10, 1894 – The new steel ship Kearsarge left Duluth this evening with a cargo of 3,450 tons, or 138,000 bushels of barley. It was the largest ever out of Lake Superior.

St. Paul Daily Globe; “Great Cargo of Barley”; Oct. 11, 1894; p. 1.



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.
