On This Date in Minnesota History: November 10

November 10, 1975 — “The Edmund Fitzgerald, en route from Duluth to the steel mill on Zug Island, near Detroit, Mich., with a full cargo of taconite, sinks during a massive winter storm on Lake Superior. All 29 aboard are lost.” 

Gordon Lightfoot sang about the Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald 

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.


Discover your roots, and watch the branches of your family tree begin to grow.
