On This Date in Minnesota History: April 16

April 16, 2013 – The body of a stillborn child wrapped in dirty laundry was discovered on this date by workers at Crothall Laundry Services in Red Wing, Minn. Born April 4 at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, the boy had been wrapped in a bedsheet in the hospital “morgue and mistaken for laundry that  was sent for cleaning.”  Chris Boese, Region’s chief nursing officer, apologized to the family and said the hospital was looking into what happened to ensure it didn’t happen again.

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.
