On This Date in Minnesota History: November 24

November 24, 1986 – The Minnesota Twins hire Tom Kelly as the team’s manager. Kelly had been “named as interim manager when Ray Miller was fired on September 12.”1 At 36, he was the major leagues’ youngest manager.2

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 available.
