On This Date in Minnesota History: July 2

July 2, 2011 – The six-fatality fire at the Bohemian Bed and Breakfast, [New Ulm, Minn.] was the single biggest fire death incident in Minnesota in 2011. The July 2 fire, which claimed the life of owner Bobbi McCrea and her daughters, Abby and Savannah, and three guests, was caused by unattended candles. The Bohemian fire was one of the region's worst fires and possibly the worst in New Ulm history.”

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.
