On This Date in Minnesota History: August 21

August 21, 1918 - A large and destructive tornado, estimated as an F4, devastated the town of Tyler, Minn. on this date. The “tornado hit the town at approximately 9:20 p.m., killing 36 people and injuring over 100 others. Debris from Tyler was found up to 23 miles (37 km) away. It is the fourth-deadliest tornado in Minnesota's 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.
