On This Date in Minnesota History: July 21

July 21, 2012 – Mike Lynn, Vikings General Manager and the mastermind behind what many consider the worse sports trade in history, died on this date.

“Lynn is perhaps best [remembered in Minnesota] for sending five players and seven draft choices -- including three first-round picks -- to the Cowboys for running back Herschel Walker on Oct. 12, 1989. The Cowboys went on to win three Super Bowls, while Walker recorded 2,264 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns for the Vikings in 42 games.”

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.
