North Dakota Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records In North Dakota, birth records are part of the Department of Health's Vital Records Division whose birth records date back to 1870, although complete records don't really start until 1920. For Death Records In North Dakota, the Vital Records Division of the Department of Health is in charge of death records. While many North Dakota death records reach back as far as 1893, the most complete records begin in 1920. Section 23-02.1-27 of the North Dakota Century Code, which was recently revised, deals with vital records access and is the definitive source for answers about who can and can't retrieve copies of North Dakota death records. For Obituaries North Dakota may not be the most populous state, but it is well organized and the people there understand how important it is to put older obituaries online so that others can view them. If you are looking for North Dakota obituaries, the following online resources should come in quite handy. You can begin your search with the website for North Dakota State University. They house accurate and up to date listings that were published in various Fargo area newspapers from 1901 all the way up to present day. This is one of the most comprehensive listing services in the country. Your next stop should be the Golden Valley County GenWeb site. GenWeb is a collection of genealogy related websites from all over the country. This one specializes in listings from the Golden Valley area of the state. The Red River Valley Genealogical Society is another important alley in the effort to digitize old listings throughout the state. They feature listings from as far back as 1903. Our final stop is with the North Dakota Department of Health. They have listings that go back quite a ways although most of them are simply certificates, although there are some obits on file, as well. If you are looking for North Dakota obituary records, these sites should help you in your efforts. For Marriages In North Dakota, marriage records are available only on a county-by-county basis from a specific county clerk and thus the only way to request records directly is to visit the county where the marriage occurred.
