Presented by Jean Wilcox Hibben, PhD, MA, sponsored by the Minnesota Genealogical Society.
a virtual program from the comfort of your desk.

Audience Level – All

Farming is said to provide the backbone of America; nowhere is this more accurate than in the heartland of America. While many immediately think of Wisconsin, when talking about midwestern farming, Minnesota has a unique history in agriculture. Was your family part of the farming community? Learn how the farmer contributed to the country’s way of life, ways to research farm values and records, and why the farming ancestor and farm family are to be revered and respected. After this webinar, no one should use the phrase, “my ancestor was JUST a farmer”!
