On This Date in Minnesota History: November 1

November 1, 1849 – “A memorial for an appropriation to construct a Minnesota Territorial Prison is presented to and approved by Congress. Construction of the prison begins at Stillwater in 1851 and the first stage is completed by 1853.”

Original Stillwater State Prison

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 MHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
