We cannot do smart family history research without knowing what laws and related information govern the compilation and preservation of records. We need to understand the background of a record and why it differs by years and location. My friend and colleague, Debbie Mieszala, writes a series of blog posts to direct us to many of those laws that affect our research. Today, her post on The Advancing Genealogist, links us to historic statutes for the state of Minnesota. As she states, some states have website that pull many of these together and for other states, Debbie does in-depth research. Have some ancestral roots in Minnesota? Check out Debbie’s The Advancing Genealogist for more details.
