More Historical Resources
There are a lot of books that have been written about Minnesota, many of them have information
about Individuals who either were born there or who lived there for a time.

Most of the Indexes for the books on the site linked below do not break down the location,
so searching them using "Blue Earth" is required.

Using " Minnesota History" on the Site gives these results.

I found two books written about Swedish Immigrants in Minnesota.
They are chock full of very interesting information: Biographies & Genealogies.

New Resources are welcome,
please send along a note with links
