<br>Most overseas immigrants to North Dakota came through the port of New York or other east coast ports. The Family History Library and the [http://www.archives.gov/genealogy/start-research National Archives] have U.S. passenger lists or indexes for the years 1820 to 1943, and for Canadian ports, 1865 to 1900.

North Dakota's naturalization records (1873-1952) are&nbsp;indexed at the [http://www.nd.gov/hist/sal/gen/infnat.htm State Archives and Historical Research Library of the State Historical Society of North Dakota]. These records represent the bulk of documentation pertaining to immigration and naturalization proceedings in the state, but&nbsp;not&nbsp;those individuals who were naturalized in federal court.
