On This Date in Minnesota History: July 1

July 1, 1966 – “Medicare went into effect on [this date], giving nearly 90,000 Twin cities senior citizens a chance to begin receiving much of their hospital care at federal expense.”

Minneapolis Tribune; “Opening Day of Medicare Quiet in Area”; July 2, 1966, p. 1.

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.
