On This Date in Minnesota History: October 29

October 29, 1879 - On this date, “a local newspaper reported that there were two ladies and twenty bachelors in the town of Lakefield,” Jackson County, Minn. Lakefield was dedicated as a town on September 5, 1879.


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.
