This week’s blogging prompt is the State of North Dakota. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to North Dakota. If you don’t have any connections to North Dakota, find a North Dakota resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 9/29/2013 – 10/5/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
I do not have any family connections to North Dakota, so I will highlight a resource instead.
The North Dakota GenWeb site seems to be a very good resource to start your search for your North Dakota ancestors. There are several online records which you can reach from this website including the 1885 territorial census. Some of these links will take you off the North Dakota website to another site. For example, when you do a search from the 1885 territorial census, it takes you to North Dakota State University Libraries page, where the search engine is located.
If you have any family connections to North Dakota, make sure to visit this valuable resource and one or more of the links below.
