On This Date in Minnesota History: March 30

March 30, 1920 – “From all parts of [Thief River Falls] reports are trickling in of a strange man who hides behind trees and jumps out at the ladies as they go by, oftentimes grabbing them and kissing them before they fully realize what the man is about. The police have been constantly on the job trying to catch to catch the man but so far have failed in their efforts to locate him.” 

The Tribune
; “Strange Man Kisser is at Large in City”; Thief River Falls, Minn.; March 30, 1920; p. 1.

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.
