My connection to the state of Washington is rather remote. Anna Louise Hayward was born in Spokane, Washington on July 17, 1881. She married my second cousin twice removed, Ralph Barnard Trousdale. His parents were James Barnard Trousdale and Mary Barbara Valdivia. Mary’s parents were Rafael Joseph Valdivia and Frances Augusta Sanders. Frances parents were Henry Lewer Sanders and Barbara Anne Warwick, out common ancestor.

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.
