On This Date in Minnesota History: March 13

March 13, 1934 – “Just after midnight, homeowner Dr. Nels Mortensen answers his doorbell” on Fairmount Avenue in St. Paul, to find “wounded gangsters John Dillinger and John Hamilton on his front steps.”

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.
