This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Minnesota. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Minnesota. If you don’t have any connections to Minnesota, find a Minnesota resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 8/11/2013 – 8/17/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
I do not have any links to Minnesota, so I will instead highlight one resource from Minnesota.
The Minnesota Historical Society has a wonderful collection of research tools on it’s website.
They have search tools for:
- Birth Records
- Death Records
- State Census Records
- Veterans Grave Registry
They also have digital collections of newspapers and maps.
If you have a Minnesota relative, be sure to check out these resources.
