On This Date in Minnesota History: December 10

December 10, 1986 – “Barbara Cheester [was] named the first executive director of the Minnesota Center for Torture Victims. The center was established in 1985 with a volunteer staff and was recently awarded a $300,000 grant from the Northwest Area Foundation. The grant allows the center to make its first permanent staffing appointments.”

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 available.
