Minnesota County History Name Index

Name index for histories of eight south eastern counties of Minnesota


Throughout the state's storied history, the majority of Minnesota's residents have lived in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area. This database is a name index of eleven county histories and plat books for the area immediately south of St. Paul. These books were published between 1860 and 1910. Researchers will find the name of county resident, the book in which the person's name appears, and the page number. Where information is available, town of residence is also given. Compiled by John Dalby and listing almost 80,000 persons, this is a valuable addition to the Ancestry.com online library.
