Hi, there, I'm wondering if anyone can help me figure out my great-great grandma Sarah "Annie" Cyrus/Burks' line. Sarah was born 1889 in Minnesota, her parents are listed as a William Cyrus and Sadie Burks on her 1956 Texas death certificate, and Sarah went on to marry Samuel Dempsey Cain (1881-1958). She was also half-Indian and briefly operated a Minnesota area farm for either a tribe or the Bureau of Indian Affairs around 1905. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks! - Josh

Ever wondered where exactly your Germans from Russia ancestral village was located? We have created a Google map of over 1000 villages, now available on our new home https://germans-from-russia-settlements.blogspot.com. We are working on expanding the data and creating new maps. Check it out and pass it along.

Wondering if anyone can help. My mom won't give me any information on who my father was, only that he supposedly died not long after I was born.  I was able to obtain my original birth certificate and it lists my father as a Charles William Phillips who was born in Grand Marais and was 22 years old on the day of my birth, May 1952. I have found nothing online. Wondering if someone had the ability to check the birth records for Cook county.
Thanks

According to the 1930 census, Charles' father was named Norman (born 1903 in Wisconsin), and his mother was Vivian (born 1907 in Minnesota).  Norman's parents were born in Norway.  Vivian's father was born in Wisconsin and his mother in Minnesota.  

By the 1940 census, Vivian was remarried to a Francis Lee (born 1900 in Minnesota).  HIs sister, who also appears in both censuses, was named Normay.  She was two years older than Charles.

Charles' home in 1930 was Minneapolis.  In 1940, it was Glennwod, MN.   It appears Norman died after 1935 since the inferred home of Vivian was Minneapolis in 1935, and in 1940 it is Glenwood, same as her new husband.  
 
If I can help more, let me know.

I am having difficulty locating any records of my family, other than the census records. I am looking for George Rapp and his wife Aggie(Agatha) Franz. My great grandpa George is buried in Northfield, Rice, Minnesota, he died 5 December 1935. My last known whereabouts of my great grandma Aggie is in 1945 in Fairbault, Rice, MN. I would love any information anyone might have or ideas of places to look.

I'm looking for photos of the communities on the levee in St. Paul in the  1890s through 1920. Does anyone have a photo to share with me?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, they have some great photos, Problem is that I cannot afford $20 each for digital images for my family history.  I was hoping that a few folks would volunteer to share their own photos.

I sure hope that this small community grows.

My great grandparents arrived from Poland [Prussia] in the early 1880's and settled on the Upper Levee.  I'm searching for photos of the Levee from that era.  I'll be grateful for any help.

Thanks
