Welcome to 19th Century Biographies

In these pages we have biographies of of people who lived during the 19th century, as well as a few prominent people from earlier periods. Our collection of biographical data includes tens of thousands of names, but it takes to time to format this material for the web, and place it online, so we are gradually building up our listings. So far, we have 1453 biographies listed.

When possible, we include more than one biography for persons who are listed in multiple sources, so that you may compare information and details from various listings. We include some very short biographical sketches for their genealogical and historical value, as well as much longer, detailed biographical articles and treatises.

Here is a list of the 50 most recently added biographies:
