North Dakota Census Notes

1860, 1870, 1880 and 1885 Dakota Territory Census Records are known to exist. Dakota Territory was created in 1861 and encompassed all of both North Dakota and South Dakota until 1887 when they were split. This information can come into play when searching for ancestors in the Dakotas. There are several Dakota Territory censuses available online. See the links to the right under Statewide North Dakota Census Records Online.

North Dakota State Census Records are known to be in existence for  years 1885 (which is incomplete), 1915 and 1925. See 1915 & 1925 ND State Censuses at Ancestry.

Federal North Dakota Census Records are available to the public for the following census years: 1860 Dakota Territory, 1870 Dakota Territory, 1880 Dakota Territory, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930. See 1790-1940 US Census Records at Ancestry.

Soundex code (phonetic indexes) for Federal North Dakota census records are available on microfilm for census years: 1880, 1900, and 1920.

1890 North Dakota Federal Census schedules were completely destroyed by a 1921 warehouse fire, however, the 1890 Veterans and Widows census schedules for North Dakota did survive the fire and may provide a helpful census substitute. See A Fire Destroyed The 1890 Census, Bridging the 1890 Census Gap & 1890 Veterans Schedules at Ancestry.

 North Dakota

(Territory 1861.  Statehood 1889.)

The Dakotas were part of the Louisiana Purchase.  Prior to 1820, Dacotah was part of Missouri Territory.  At different points in time, the western half was attached to Nebraska Territory, while the eastern half was included in Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin Territories.  The area became known as Dakota Territory in 1861. In 1863, the Homestead Act was passed and settlers flooded into the territory.  Dakota Territory was split into North and South Dakota in 1887.
