"People and Places"
These pages contain photos and stories and whatever else I could find pertaining to the People of Dayton and the various buildings and scenery that our ancestors called "home."
of these photos were shared with me by various other
Dayton area researchers in the hopes of bringing alive
their ancestors and hopefully finding some new cousins
and perhaps identifying some "unknown faces" in
I do not live
in the Dayton area, nor have I ever been there, but years
of research, have made me feel like I have lived there my
whole life. There has been so much enjoyment
researching this small town and learning how our
immigrant ancestors ended up calling Dayton, Minnesota,
hope you enjoy visiting Dayton, People and
Places. You can visit my personal webpage,
"Ancestor's Attic" to see the extended
family trees of French Canadian families that I have
researched and see if any of your surnames are in my
database from the Dayton and surrounding areas.
Please feel free to contact me or the Hennepin County Coordinator with any additions or corrections. Let's make this a truly "Family Oriented Site" ! Patty0802@aol.com
are many, many Family History stories and photos included
in the Historical Cookbook of St. John The Baptist
Church. But due to copyright laws, I cannot
reprint them here.
