Narrative of the life of a Dutch immigrant to Minnesota

Gertrude Vandergon came to Minnesota from Holland in 1867 with some of these unreal expectations. In this database she reflects upon her early life in Wayne County. Researchers will find experiences from her life, including descriptions of the long winters, infestations of insects, and interactions with her neighbors. Intended to aid those wishing to better understand the pioneer life, this database can be a helpful aid research and entertaining to read.
