On This Date in Minnesota History: October 28

October 28, 1992 – Duluth Mayor Gary Doty cut the ribbon at the mouth of the brand-new, 1,430-foot-long Leif Erikson Tunnel on I35 on this date. With the opening of the tunnel, the highway, which stretches 1,593 miles, from Mexico to Canada, was finally finished. As a result, the federal government announced the Interstate Highway System itself was 99.7 percent complete.

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.
