It contains over 132,000 names which is more than two-thirds of the total population for the northern half of Dakota Territory at that time. Extracting the census data has been a cooperative project involving Jane Skjei, Institute volunteer; George Barron of Jamestown, N.D.; Donald Smith of Mandan, N.D.; and Carol Norsby.Schedules have survived for fifty of the fifty-six counties which existed in the northern half of Dakota Territory. All fifty counties have been indexed. This database contains information for forty-nine counties, except Grand Forks. The later has been indexed by the University of North Dakota, Chester Fritz Library, Dept. of Special Collections and is available there in print format. The mortality schedule names for Grand Forks County are included in this database. The missing county schedules include Boreham, De Smet, Flannery, Hettinger, Sheridan, and Stevens.Each entry includes: name, age, nativity,occupation, county of residence, and exact location of the entry in the census schedule. The census is available on microfilm in the Institute (Microfilm HA631 1885 .D34). The Mortality and Civil War veterans schedules were also extracted, but are not presently included in this database.
