In the territorial era, naturalization proceedings were handled by the U.S. district courts. For information, contact the National Archives—Central Plains Region at Kansas City.

After statehood in 1889, the clerk of the circuit court in each county was authorized to keep all naturalization records. You can obtain copies of declarations and petitions from the clerk's office.

For naturalization records after September 1906, contact the National Archives—Central Plains Region at Kansas City or the local office of the Immigration and Naturalization Service. The Family History Library does not have copies of these records from South Dakota.
