What are the best ways to find and copy naturalization papers completed by your ancestors?

The best place in Minnesota to find naturalization papers is to visit the Minnesota Discovery Center is Chisholm, MN. As a part of their collection, they have all the naturalization forms on microfilm.

The Research Center at the Blue Earth County Historical Society has a copy of the index for all naturalization records that came from Blue Earth County. The information included with this index allows the researcher to know which reel of microfilm they need to look at, as well as contact information for the Minnesota Discovery Center.

What genealogical resources are available outside of the Internet?

The internet seems to be the place where people go to find out more information about their family history. There are many great resources available online, but there are also many great resources available offline as well to assist in your quest for your family, they often just take a little more digging.

Around the Research Center

It’s amazing how great it feels when someone finds what they came for at the Blue Earth County Historical Society. In the past week, three different people came in looking for their relatives and they all left with everyone they were looking for. One of the people said he would have to come back after working his way through all the obituaries he found. This was the first time for one of these people and the second trip to see us for the other two. Weeks like this make my job so rewarding.
