A biography is a history of a person’s life. In a biography you may find an individual’s birth, marriage, and death information. You may also find the names of the individual’s parents, children, or other family members. Use this information sparingly, because it may sometimes be inaccurate.
Some brief biographies have been gathered and published in collective biographies, sometimes called biographical encyclopedias or biographical dictionaries. Often these collective biographies only include biographies of prominent citizens of Indonesia.
A good source of prominent people in Indonesia is:
- Who's Who in Indonesia: Biographies of Prominent Indonesia Personalities in All Fields (FHL book 959.8 D34r).
There are many biographies listed in the Family History Library. Go to Place search and type in:
