On This Date in Minnesota History: February 26

February 26, 1951 – On this date, Minnesota was the 36th state (of 41 total) to ratify the 22nd Amendment to the U. S. Constitution. This amendment limited a U. S. president to two terms in office. At the time, ratification required 36 states out of 48; today, ratification would require 38 states out of 50.


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.
