On This Date in Minnesota History: October 26

October 26, 1960 – The American League approved the request of Calvin Griffith, president of the Washington, D.C., baseball team, the Senators, to move the team to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. The Senators became the Minnesota Twins, and the city inherited baseball legends such as Harmon Killebrew and Jim Lemon.

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.
