Biographical Sketches

As I work on the Hamlet Volume I occasionally come across past residents of sufficient interest that a genealogical entry in the Hamlet People Database does not do them justice.  In this section are presented brief "sketches,"  newspaper clippings or first hand accounts of their, or their family's, lives.  It's more or less an on-line "scrapbook."  These sketches are both linked to and linked from their entry in the Hamlet People Database.  There is a companion section of Historical Sketches.
