In May of 1997, this project was organized by Jeff Murphy, using the established KY
Biographies Project as a model. State coordinators were sought to set up their own state project.
They were offered the system design and tools created for the KY project, but were free to set up
their project in any way they chose. Volunteers are now needed to enter, edit, and archive the biographies for each project. If you would like to volunteer to coordinate a county please contact the Minnesota State Coordinator, Tina Hursh.
I am Barbara Timm and I am the coordinator for Aitkin County, Minnesota. If you have biographies you would like to submit for Aitkin County, please contact me.
ABOUT THE AITKIN COUNTY BIOGRAPHY PROJECT
The "Aitkin County Biography Project" is part of a site that is already
in existence: "The Aitkin County, Minnesota, GenWeb Site." Indeed, the page you are reading now is located on that
site. For some time now, readers have been contributing biographies, obituaries, and a great variety of other material to the Aitkin County GenWeb. Click

SUBMIT A BIOGRAPHY
The second part of this project will depend on you, dear readers. I
encourage you to send in your family's biographies so that others researching
your surnames can find this valuable information. Often, funeral notices are
a source of biographical information. You, too, can write a biography with
little more than birth and death dates and a few personal remembrances of
where the subject lived, loved, worked and played. Make sure that you include source
information for your biographies, whether it be a book, newspaper, family
papers or other. So, let's get this project on wheels! Flood my e-mail-box!
