On This Date in Minnesota History: November 13

November 13, 1984 – Princeton benefactor and convicted cocaine smuggler Casey Ramirez was sentenced to 20 years in prison by U.S. District Judge Edward Demitt. “Ramirez received a $50,000 fine in addition to the prison term on one count of conspiring to smuggle cocaine and a second count of conspiring to possess and distribute the drug in the United States.”

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.
