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. All you have to do then is put the information in an e-mail and send it to me.
ABOUT THE U.S. 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 Winona County, Minnesota.
ABOUT THE WINONA COUNTY BIOGRAPHY PROJECT
The "Winona County Biography Project" is joining a project that was already
in existence: "History of Winona County, Minnesota." The page you
are reading now is located on that original site. Click HERE to go to the history section.
