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. I am Michael, and I am coordinator for Richland county, Wisconsin. Volunteers are needed to enter, edit, and archive the biographies for each project. If you have biographies you would like to donate to the Project, please contact me. If you would like to volunteer to coordinate a county, please contact Linda Pingel by clicking on the Wisconsin Biographies Project link above.
