Minnesota Historical Society Library
A resource that we use frequently is the Minnesota Historical Society (MHS) Library. Often times we will go there to look up news articles in various papers or retrieve copies of documents from the Minnesota State Archives. Recently, I fielded a reference request for divorce documents written up in 1882. The MHS Library and State Archives is a treasure trove of exciting materials and documents. In addition to their amazing newspaper collection, you may also find birth records, death records, a federal census for Minnesota, marriage records, military records, naturalization records, obituaries, and much more. Check out their library services.
