On This Date in Minnesota History: September 8

September 8, 1919 – “The Minnesota Legislature ratified the 19th Amendment [prohibits any United States citizen to be denied the right to vote based on sex.] (House 120 to 6 / Senate 60 to 5).”

Clara Hampson Ueland was President of the Minnesota Woman Suffrage Association, 1914-19, and then the first President of Minnesota League of Women Voters, 1919-20.


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 MNHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
