WELCOME TO THE GOODHUE COUNTY, MN. BIOGRAPHIES PROJECT

Hello and Welcome! My name is Kathryn and I am the Coordinator for the Goodhue County Biography Project for Minnesota. 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 needed to enter, edit, and archive the biographies for each project.  If you have biographies you would like to donate for GOODHUE County, contact me. It's easy to submit your biographies! Click on this Submitting Biographies link for instructions. If you would like to volunteer to coordinate a county please contact the Minnesota State Coordinator Tina Hursh.
