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 Nyla CREED DePauk, and I am the coordinator for Raleigh County, West Virginia
Volunteers are needed to enter, edit, and archive the biographies for each project. 
If you have biographies you would like to donate for Raleigh County, please 
contact me .   If you would like to volunteer to coordinate a county, please contact the 
West Virginia State Coordinator Tina Hursh .
