While we may have collections that can assist in genealogy research, we do not hold certain types of materials. The Upper Midwest Jewish Archives does not hold any Birth, Death or Marriage records. These records are held with the county department of public health. We also do not hold census records or naturalization records. These items can be found at the Minnesota Historical Society’s Library in St. Paul. See Related Sources page for more information.
