The biographies can be downloaded in two formats, PDF or MS Word (Docx). The PDF formats are generally much smaller in size and may download 10 times faster. Both formats have identical content. The MS Word format is Office Word 2007. We have used 1 margins throughout to facilitate storage in two or three ring binders and/or possible publication in a hardbound edition. The downloaded documents will be in a zipped compressed file format, and will result in an icon on the Windows Desktop if the save option is selected. Clicking on the desktop icon will invoke an unzip program like WinZip or similar utility to expand the file into a text file like XXXX.pdf or XXXX.docx.
We are in the process of making revisions to almost all of the biographies to incorporate accumulated and previously unpublished changes. We are also incorporating the information found on the recently released 1940 U.S. Census records.
