On This Date in Minnesota History: May 6

May 6, 1995 - Anne V. Simonett, the first woman to serve as Chief Judge of the Minnesota Court of Appeals, died on this date after only eight months in office.  Simonett, who was named Chief Judge on July 1, 1994, and resigned on March 31, 1995, succumbed to an incurable brain tumor. The daughter of Minnesota Supreme Court Justice John E. Simonett, she grew up in Little Falls, Minn.

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.
