In May of 1997, this project was organized by Jeff Murphy, using the established KY 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. I am Nathan Zipfel and I am the coordinator for Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Volunteers are needed to enter, edit, and archive the biographies for this project. If you have biographies you would like to donate for Lancaster County, please contact me.

Lancaster County Biographies
This is first and foremost; DO NOT post materials protected by copyright other than your own! Any posted biographies found to be protected by a copyright of someone other than the submitter will be removed. Books and biography collections printed prior to 1927 are generally not protected by copyright and are considered to be in the public domain. Photo static re-prints or duplications of pre-1927 works are not protected by current copyright. The short story here is: Make sure your source books are pre-1927 originals, or re-prints or copies of pre-1927 originals. Make sure all original works are accompanied by your copyright notice, which is at the least the word "copyright", your name, and the date.
