This is a list of free, online Minnesota Genealogy Records at FamilySearch.

 

Included are Minnesota birth records, marriage records, death records, census records, former slave records, pension records, military records and more. We’ll continue to add more Minnesota collections available online at FamilySearch. If you’re looking for onsite collections, visit their website & catalog.

 

Some of these records have a searchable name index, others have browsable images, a few have both an index and images, and some link to individuals in the FamilySearch family tree.

 

This list prioritizes indexed collections, but if you can’t find your Minnesota ancestor there, the list includes online image collections which take longer to search, but have a treasure trove of information.

 

These collections are all free to search. You’ll need to be logged in with a free FamilySearch account to search some of these records.

 

 

 

How to View the Collections

  1. Some links take your straight to the collection.

  2. Other links take you to a catalog description page where you will have to select the link.

  3. In a few cases, the collection may be in queue to be digitized and you’ll need to check back at a later date.
