On This Date in Minnesota History: January 5

January 5, 2009 – “Minnesota Twins owner Carl Pohlad passed away at his Edina home at the age of 93. Pohlad bought the Twins from Calvin Griffith, the team’s original owner, in 1984 for about $38 million.”

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.
