The Minnesota Historical Society┬áis the official website of the Minnesota State Archives. “The State Archives Department identifies, collects, and preserves the historically valuable records of almost 4,000 units of state and local government in Minnesota. These are records generated from the territorial period to the present day.”

Some of their online collections include:

  • State Census Index

  • Death Certificate Index

  • Birth Certificate Index

  • Collections Online

  • Duluth Lynchings

  • Veterans Grave Index

The Minnesota Historical Society has a People Finder search system that will search any or all of their online collections, based on how you choose to refine your search. You can search by collection, narrow by year, narrow by type, narrow by name, and more.
