CD: Commemorative Biographical Record of the Fox River Valley Counties of Brown, Outagamie and Winnebago, [Wisconsin]


Most of the nearly 1,000 subjects were still alive at the time of the original publication, so the majority of the biographies focus on the mid to late 1800s. Many of the subjects are first or second generation immigrants, and usually the sketches include the country of origin, the names of parents and siblings, and the date and place of immigration. The subject's spouse and children are always recorded, and whenever possible a little biographical information about them is included as well. The heart of each sketch, however, is the recounting of the subject's path to prominence and distinction. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.
