Early Minnesota Birth Records
3,346 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. Search through currently included names! The years given below are the years for which birth records were registered, not necessarily the year of birth.

Records include some or all of the following information:
  Child: Name, birthdate, birthplace, sex, race
  Parents: Name, birthplace, occupation, age
  Other: Date of registration, miscellaneous notes
