History of US Biographies
In May 1997, the US Biographies 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.
Jeff Murphy is acknowledged for
all the time and effort he put into getting this project started. He is missed but thanks to him many people will be able to continue their family search over the internet at no cost.
