[Formerly part of:  FAMILY TREES AND OTHER GENEALOGICAL TREASURES.  This section formerly included an index for Books and Biographical Sketches that appear on this site.  Because these sections became too large, Books and Biographical Sketches have become separate sections with their own respective titles You can go to any of the individual sections by clicking on Family Trees, Web Sites, Books and Biographical Sketches, respectively.]

A truly valuable resource for learning about the details of the lives of our ancestors is a biographical sketch of that ancestor.  There are a surprising number of such bio-sketches available.  This section attempts to collect bio-sketches and to arrange them in alphabetical order by surname.
