A biography is a history of a person’s life. In a biography you may find the individual’s birth, marriage, and death information, and the names of his or her parents, children, or other family members. Use the information carefully because there may be inaccuracies.
Some brief biographies are included in encyclopedias or dictionaries. These include biographies of prominent or well-known citizens of Greece. Sometimes biographies are also written for specific groups of people, such as people who participated in the war of independence. (See the “Encyclopedias and Dictionaries” section.)
Biographical books at the Family History Library will be listed in the FamilySearch Catalog under the locality and then the heading “Biography.” There are biographical books at the Family History Library for people who lived in the towns of Hios (county of Hiou), and Zakynthos (county of Zakynthou).
