About Us

Welcome to the U.S. Biographies Project website - a proud member of the PA-Roots family of websites!  PA-Roots is a Pennsylvania Non-Profit Corporation.  We're so glad that you've found us and we hope that the resources will be valuable to your research.  This website serves as the "hub" or entry-point for all the U.S. States Biographies Projects.

Do you have some time to volunteer to enter or edit some biographies?  If so, please contact the state coordinator for the state you are interested in and volunteer your time.

Would like to adopt one of the available states or a county within one of the orphan states?  If so, please visit our Help Desk.  If you have any questions about the Project you should start by visiting our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.
