Genealogist saves the day — well, some church records

Earlier this year, I blogged about the stolen records of a Moravian Church in Chaska, Minnesota. http://genealogybypaula.com/category/church-records/

Unfortunately, the crime hasn’t been solved but the Star-Tribune has an update about some photographed pages of the death records.

“One small consolation came early this month. The church was a polling place, and a voter saw the sign about the burglary on the front door and reminded church staff she had once briefly borrowed the volumes to pursue her genealogy hobby.”

Apparently the genealogist has photographed the death records and supplied the church with the images.

The full story is here: http://www.startribune.com/local/west/283891771.html
