Early Minnesota Birth Records
Minnesota mandated the recording of births by local units of government in 1870.
These records were generally recorded by local units of government such as township boards and villages.
KinSource has extracted early birth records from birth record ledgers maintained by these local units of government.
Names for all people referenced in each record are searchable.
