On This Date in Minnesota History: December 6

December 6, 1951 – On this date, a large fire consumed northern Minnesota’s Lutsen Resort for the third time. The first fire happened in early 1948, and the second on Oct. 21 in the same year.  The current lodge was built after the 1951 fire, using a “Scandinavian design by Edwin Lundie.”

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.
