On This Date in Minnesota History: April 26

April 26, 1978 – A beautiful home built in the Lowry Hill neighborhood of Minneapolis for Charles J. Martin was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on this date. Martin served for many years as the secretary and treasurer of the Washburn-Crosby Company, a predecessor of General Mills.

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.
