On This Date in Minnesota History: December 24

December 24, 1915 – A pay-direct machine has been installed in the teller’s window at the Northern National Bank in Bemidji, Minn. The machine, when a key is pressed, shoots the required sum out into a tray in easy reach of the customer and so that the money can be picked up in case the customer is wearing gloves. The money is no longer touched and counted by the teller as the new machine counts out the sum wanted.

The Bemidji Daily Pioneer; “Pay-Direct Machine Installed at Bank”; December 24, 1915, p. 1.

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.
