My father, a Cuban citizen, signed an Assignment of Interest

My father, a Cuban citizen...
My father, a Cuban citizen, signed an Assignment of Interest in Estate re undivided share of mineral rights in North Dakota in favor of his younger brother, a US resident, in 1967. It was signed on a form from the state of North Dakota in Cuba (looks as if it was signed in ND but was not), had 2 witnesses but was not notarized nor stamped and sealed as it should have been.
I have been told by a reliable source that that Assignment would not have been, nor is it now, a valid legal document in Cuba.
My question is: Can a document that is not valid in its country of origin, be valid in North Dakota courts today?
Both of these men are now dead and never mentioned or discussed this asset with their children. If you need a copy that Assignment or any other information please contact me.
I need a “yes” or “no” answer plus citation, not a “maybe”. Thank you.

Good afternoon. In order for this to have been a legally binding document, it would have been required to have been notarized. Since it was not, it was not a legally binding documents.
