online index of over 2 million short biographies for
people who lived in North and South America, Western
and Central Europe, Australia, Oceania, and New Zealand.
You can search by name, occupation, year of birth, year
of death, and year cited. You can also specify specific
archives to search. Once you've done a search, you'll
get a results page with checkboxes. Check the entries
you wish to see and you'll get all of them in one large
page. Thanks LIIWeek.
