Hello All,
I'm tring to find obituaries for my Great Grandparents who both died in Minneapolis Minnesota:

John Jones (Jonas?) b: 1855/56 Finland d: bet 1914 and the 1920 census
John worked for the Cedar Lake Ice Co. in Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota. He died at work in an accident in which he was crushed by blocks of ice.

Anna Walborg (Valborg) Jones b: Dec 1872/73 Kemijärvi d: 09 Apr 1957 Minneapolsi, Hennepin, MN

Both are buried in Crystal Lake Cememtery in Mpls, MN as far as anyone knows.

I'm also thinking there may be an article in the Mpls newspaper during that time period about the accident and death of an employee during that time.

Thank You,
Cheryl

I found the four following death certificates at the Minnesota Historical Society website. www.mnhs.org You can order copies of them through the Society. They also have microfilm of all MN newspapers dating back to early 1900's. Not sure if they will research that for you or not. Start with this and see if it helps. Jodie
