Iron Range Research Center
The Iron Range Research Center contains one of the largest collections of genealogical and local history research materials in the Upper Midwest and includes census, naturalization records, passenger arrival records, mining company newsletters, and a survey of Women in Industry taken in 1919, among many others. The reference book collection, maps, photographs, oral histories and microfilmed newspapers are a gold mine of information for genealogists, historians, scholars and students.
