We have been getting quite a few emails, calls, and messages about when we are opening. So glad you miss us! Here are the details. Opening day will be Saturday, June 18th 9 am- noon. Tuesday markets will start Tuesday, June 21st 3:30-6 pm. All markets will be held downtown at Floyd B. Olson park (the one with the gazebo). Final market day (weather permitting) will be Saturday, Oct. 1. If you could please share this, it would really help us get the word out. Thanks for your help and see you soon!

I am sorry I haven't gotten the obits and cemeteries back up yet, I have been working on the other pages, and trying to fix the data with them. There are over 150,000 records, the original site did not have any controls and there were a lot of duplicates, and mis-entered data. I still have about 200 hours of work to finish correcting things. Once I get the data corrected and standardized I will finish the development of the display pages, and search engine. I will also create an entry system for the library to continue their support. I'm sorry for any inconvenience in this matter, but I want the new site to be as accurate as possible.

REMEMBER: The museum only has a few more weeks left of the season, Stop by and explore the local history.
If you look at the membership page you will see that it is full of text.
We have the text for the buildings page done as well. I intend to start putting together pictures for both of these pages today.
The membership page will also have an entry system allowing you to join the Society. At this time you will still need to send a check.
Though the society and museum do get some funding, most of the funds come from people like you.

Today we are launching a new home page, this page will remain while the rest of the site is in progress.
It is my intentions to get Membership, Buildings and Contact pages done over the next week.
As days go by I will update you here with messages of new pages.

I finally got Ajax working, if you click on a date in the calendar on the Home page you will see the page no longer refreshes.
This is so you stay where you are on the page instead of having to scroll back down after clicking on an item

Hi there, I'm Grace Clough and I am currently researching the past presidents of the MN School Boards Association. If you have any information or pictures of Dr. A. E. Jackson (served 1948-1949) that relate to the school board association, please let me know and we can hopefully figure out a way to transfer them electronically. I am a full time student and interning for the MN School Boards Association, so I do not have a lot of extra time to travel to different counties and conduct this research, so any help is much appreciated. Thank you!

Orlin Ostby, Gatzke, the fellow who followed the Ox Cart Trail from Canada to St. Paul would like to place some of the memorabilia of the event in a museum. Would you be interested?? He will be contacted you.

Will this new website eventually have all the research resources the old site had? Image search, city directories, phone books, obituaries, etc...

Is it no longer possible to search for obituaries and burial info on this site? When I click on those options, there is nothing available.
