On This Date in Minnesota History: October 2

October 2, 1978 - “The Robbinsdale [Minn.] Library opened on January 4, 1926. The cost of construction was funded with donations from local citizens and the library club. The Hennepin County Library system took over the library in 1972, but the library club still owned the building and grounds. After the new Rockford Road Library opened, the old Robbinsdale Library was closed in 1975. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places [on this date]. These days library has been put to good use serving as a home for the Robbinsdale Historical Society and the Robbin Gallery.”

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.
