In May of 1997, this project was organized by Jeff Murphy, using the established Kentucky 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 Kentucky project. But were free to set up their project in any way they chose. Volunteers are 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.

Biographies are needed!
You can write a biography with little more than birth and death dates and a few personal remembrances of where the subject lived, or worked. Make sure that you include source information for your biographies, whether it be a book, newspaper, family papers or other
To submit a Biography please read the guidelines and using the Biography Submission form, then
Email the Biography to me.
The US Biographies Project page was created to provide a single entry point to all biography projects. If you are interested in volunteering to assist in entering or editing biographies for a particular State, please contact the State Coordinator.
