It’s amazing how great it feels when someone finds what they came for at the Blue Earth County Historical Society. In the past week, three different people came in looking for their relatives and they all left with everyone they were looking for. One of the people said he would have to come back after working his way through all the obituaries he found. This was the first time for one of these people and the second trip to see us for the other two. Weeks like this make my job so rewarding.
