With the much appreciated work of volunteer Jane Skjei, over 9,000 additional entries have been added to the North Dakota Biography Index. This is an ongoing project of the Institute for Regional Studies to provide easy access to the wealth of biographical information on North Dakotans in a wide variety of publications. Current work is to complete the indexing of community histories published since 1980 (we are currently indexing those beginning with 'R'), as well as newly received community histories.
The new publications now included in the NDBI include the North Dakota communities of Robinson (1986), Glen Ullin (2008), Milnor (2008), Riverdale (1997) and Rocklake (2005). Also indexed was the 1997 Klara Lutheran Church history (Maddock, N.D.), and the county atlases for Rolette (2000), Mercer & Oliver (1999), Eddy & Foster (1998), and Pierce (2000).
