A biography is a history of a person’s life.  A biography may give you birth, marriage, and death information and the names of parents, spouse, children, or other family members. Use the information from a biography cautiously because there may be inaccuracies.

You can locate individual or family biographies in the Surname Search of the Family History Library Catalog.

Thousands of biographies have been gathered and published in collections of biographies, sometimes called biographical encyclopedias or dictionaries. Usually these include only biographies of prominent or well-known subjects. However, some collections of biographies are of specific groups such as painters, ministers, radicals, or architects.

Look at the topic "Biography" in the Place Search of the Family History Library Catalog if your ancestor played an important part in a group or occupation.
