MN Catholic Parish records on microfilm (Hennepin Co.)

Irish Genealogical Society Intl (IGSI) members often boast about our “Irish Collection” – the books, journals, family histories, maps, and more – housed at the Minnesota Genealogical Society (MGS) Library in South St. Paul.  Also part of the collection are 101 rolls of microfilmed records from the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
