A note regarding East Grand Forks

Researchers should note that East Grand Forks is a separate city from Grand Forks.  EGF is in Polk County Minnesota, across the border (Red River of the North) from Grand Forks ND.  Polk County MNGenWeb.  EGF has never had a hospital and until the mid-1960s did not have a cemetery (Resurrection). If you believe a birth/death/burial was "in East Grand Forks" before the 1960's, you should try North Dakota Vital Records
