Society Saturday: State Historical Society of North Dakota

   North Dakota was often the second stop for a Luxembourger immigrant. It was typical to immigrate to a town that already had an established Luxembourger population and get settled. When you needed room to grow, you would then move on to a developing town. A land grant was often a big draw.
  That doesn't mean North Dakota Luxembourgers were without records. Once settled, they married, had children, and built new lives. That's where the records of the State Historical Society of North Dakota come in. Among their genealogical collections are the pre-1925 marriage indexes, naturalization indexes and records, and land records. While some of these materials can only be accessed onsite with a hired researcher, many are partially available online or can be researched by staff.
   Happy research!
