The State Archives and Historical Research Library (see North Dakota Archives, Libraries, and Societies) holds some federal district court records for Dakota Territory from 1861 through 1889 on microfilm and some county level court records. However, the county's clerk of the district court is responsible for juvenile court records, naturalization records, coroner's juries and records, civil actions, jury lists, justice of the peace records, liquor applications for medical use, judgment records, and criminal proceedings.
