Family History and History

I discovered a box of stuff from the Irish side of the family down in the basement today.

Among the newspaper clippings was a First Families of Ireland map from the Minneapolis Morning Tribune, March 17, 1953 (Minneapolis has a morning and an evening paper then, for those of you who don't remember)

A map of Minnesota pre-interstate highway system:

And my grandparents divorce documents from the 1920s, which has the address of the house my father was living in at the time (he was two). It's still there!

That was when St. Louis Park and Richfield and Robbinsdale and those other suburbs were not really part of the metropolitan area. I love maps.
