Search Minnesota Message Boards

Read and post queries on these free Minnesota genealogy message boards.  Find cousins you can share your genealogy research with.  This is a proven way to further your research efforts.  Often times another descendant of your ancestor will hold the puzzle piece that will make your family tree fall into place.  Be sure to post your own genealogy queries.  Giving too much information is better than too little as it will be easier for someone to recognize the connection between your ancestors and their own.  Be very specific and be sure to include full names, dates and places along with a valid e-mail address where you may be contacted far into the future.  You will continue to receive responses to your genealogy queries for many years to come.
