Can help with family histories listed in the Allen Co. Public Library Genealogy Catalog (ACPL). If there is a listing for a book, provide me with a list of titles/call numbers, family surname(s), and what family information you're looking for. (Also check the availability of ACPL microtext records (microfilm and microfiche).)
The ACPL is the foremost repository for city directories. I can research hard cover city directories found in the ACPL Genealogy Catalog or microfiche and microfilm city directories found in the ACPL microtext catalog. (Please specify city, date range needed, and person(s) of interest.)
Note: I do not live in Minnesota ... I live in Allen Co., IN.
Will do obit look ups in Benton and Stearns counties. Will also research the family you are looking for from their family files. I have many resources available. I may also take tombstone pictures depending on where the cemetery is located. Please email and I will see what I can do with your request.
