Importance

Land development is an important component in the settlement of North Dakota. The State Historical Society of North Dakota's collections contain important information for the genealogist or historical researcher. Examining the progression of frontier settlements, locating ancestors and embarking on land title searches are several approaches for researchers to locate information needed to understand family history, biography, and settlement patterns.

Use of the collections

These documentary collections are accessible only in the Reading Room of the State Archives with the exception of the microfilmed atlases and county plat books which are available through interlibrary loan.
