ABOUT THE BIOGRAPHY PROJECT




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 Wabasha County, Minnesota. If you have biographies you would like to submit for Wabasha County, please contact me.





FIND A BIOGRAPHY IN THE ORIGINAL SECTION

The "Wabasha Biography Project" is joining a project that was already in existence: "Biographies And Historical Sketches Of Wabasha County, Minnesota." Indeed, the page you are reading now is located on that original site. The sources for those 1,671 biographies are two old books concerning Wabasha County, one published in 1884 and one in 1920. Not all the biographies have been transcribed, but all the names are indexed, and I am continuing to transcribe biographies on request. Click HERE to go to that section.


FIND OR SUBMIT A BIOGRAPHY IN THE NEW SECTION

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!
