On This Date in Minnesota History: March 25

March 25, 1918 – Hutchinson, McLeod County, continues to “carry on.” On the heels of news that two Hutchinson boys in the 161st field artillery had been slightly wounded in France, five high school boys came from Hutchinson today and enlisted as apprentice seamen in the navy. They are Clarence DeLong, Harry Telecky and Leland Rebstock, in the back row of the photo, and Emil Nelson and Donald Goodnow, seated. They are 18 years old.

All five young men survived the war.

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.
