Territorial SealThe research guide to divorce records has been updated to provide a more comprehensive resource during the territorial period (1850-1895). The list of records in that section listed most but possibly not all territorial court records where a divorce could be found. Now there are links to the county probate courts and district courts on the research guide to territorial court records. This later guide is a compilation of all the surviving records from territorial courts. Not all of these records contain divorces, but any surviving records of divorces in the territorial period are most likely to be within the these territorial court records.
