United States North Dakota
Welcome to North Dakota, Peace Garden State
Most overseas immigrants to North Dakota came through the port of New York or other east coast ports. The Family History Library and the National Archives have U.S. passenger lists or indexes for the years 1820 to 1943, and for Canadian ports, 1865 to 1900.
North Dakota's naturalization records (1873-1952) are indexed at the State Archives and Historical Research Library of the State Historical Society of North Dakota. These records represent the bulk of documentation pertaining to immigration and naturalization proceedings in the state, but not those individuals who were naturalized in federal court.
