Wisconsin Biography Index and Biography Exchange

This is an index of biographies in selected Wisconsin historical publications. The index is alphabetical. The full text may be available in the Wisconsin GenWeb archives. A link will be visible for the biographies in the archives. Currently there are no links. The links are in the process of being added. Submissions are very welcome. If you have photocopies of any of the biographies, or if you have the books and you would be willing to send a copy to someone, please E-mail and I will add your info to the "I have a copy" column. If you need a photocopy of any of these bios, E-mail me and I will add your info to the "I need a copy" column. Feel free to submit typed full text biographies if you would like.

I will be adding more names and book titles to this index. I will also post links to the full text and submitter info. This index will be updated periodically.

If there are any errors in the spellings of names or the page numbers or anything else, please notify me. We are not perfect and transcription errors/ book index errors do occur.
