Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

This Site is Available for Adoption

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view our
Volunteer Page for further information.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site.
We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.


The county was created by the 1872-1873 territorial legislature and was organized on October 17, 1881. 
Its name was derived from Judson LaMoure of Pembina who served the first of many terms in the Dakota and North Dakota legislature.

County Seat: Grand Rapids from 1881 to 1886, LaMoure from 1886 to the present.
