On This Date in Minnesota History: March13

March 13, 1858 – Founded on this date, Kanabec County was named after the Ojibwe Ginebig, meaning "Snake," after the Snake River — Kanabecosippi (Ginebigo-ziibi in the modern spelling) — which flows through this county.

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.
