On This Date in Minnesota History: November 16

November 16, 1854 – “The high school department of what is now Hamline University opened for business in Red Wing. It suspended operations in 1869, reopened in St. Paul in 1880, but its original founding date makes it the oldest college in the state.”

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.
