On This Date in Minnesota History: November 28

November 28, 1869 - St. Paul photographer Charles Zimmerman makes the news when he gets knocked out and pinned down by a three-hundred-pound icicle that fell while he was exploring under frozen Minnehaha Falls. Luckily, a passerby found him just in time to save him from a certain death.

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.
