THE HENNEPIN COUNTY MINNESOTA
BIOGRAPHIES PROJECT


The land of Lakes

Hello, my name is Claudia. I'm the site coordinator for the Hennepin County Minnesota Biographies Project. The purpose of this site is to contribute biographies of past local residents extracted from public domain works or submitted by volunteers and researchers.

In May of 1997, this project was organized by Jeff Murphy, using the established Kentucky 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. 


Minnesota Biographies Project . If you would like to volunteer to coordinate a MN county please contact the Minnesota State Coordinator Tina Hursh.
There are still many counties open for adoption and your help is needed!

Volunteers are needed to enter, edit, and archive the biographies for each project. 

How to Submit a Biography

If you have biographies you would like to donate for Hennepin County, Minnesota please
contact me  Claudia. I would prefer that you copy and paste, or type, the biography into an e-mail if possible. This will make it easier for me to get the bio online a lot quicker, but will accept them any way you'd like to send them. Please put "Hennbios" in the subject line.

HISTORY OF HENNEPIN COUNTY
Hennepin County was formed in 1852. The county seat is Minneapolis. The history of Hennepin County (and the Twin City metro area) began at the Fort Snelling-Mendota-St. Paul hub where the Minnesota River flows into the Mississippi.  Today, this hub is in Hennepin, Ramsey, and Dakota Counties.  Please check these county pages for more links related to Hennepin County history. Also see the Minnesota Local History page by Anne Mensch with links to wonderful background articles about trends and topics which affected the county as well as the state.
