  • We are happy to announce a brand-new Research Service: the Gold Star Roll Record Request! The Gold Star Roll recorded information about Minnesota men and women who died in military service during World War I, and researchers can now order copies of these interesting records, many of which include photographs, clippings, and letters.
  • Research trips can be one of the highlights of your genealogy efforts. Please join our May 17th Topics in Family History class to learn how to best plan your activities before, during, and after the trip and to find out how to get the most out of your visits. For more information on this and other classes, please see our Attend a Library Class webpage.
