On This Date in Minnesota History: April 22

April 22, 1911 - Minnesota abolished the death penalty on this date, as Governor Adolph O. Eberhart signed a bill making first degree murder punishable by life in prison.

The last person executed by the state of Minnesota took place Feb. 13, 1906. See Feb. 13, 2013 blog.

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.
