My thanks to Claudia for all the great work she has done on Hennepin County.

I do not live in Minnesota, but have roots deep in her soil.
However, if I can, I'll be happy to try and direct you to where information might be found.  We have several great volunteers on the "Odds & Ends Page that will are willing to do research or lookup information in resources available to them. There are also many contributed records on some of our pages. Please take a look around, send me your feedback with any ideas and of course contributions.
Questions? Send 'em along- Martha
