On This Date in Minnesota History: March 21

March 21, 1881 - Warren became the county seat of Marshall County on this date. The town was “named in honor of Charles H. Warren, general passenger agent of the St. Paul, Minneapolis and Manitoba railway company,”1 which was renamed the Great Northern company in 1890.

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.


Discover your roots, and watch the branches of your family tree begin to grow.
