Wondering where to start?
If you know very little about the person and don't know where to start, you might try searching for him or her in the database listed below. It will tell you which reference sources cover the person. Then ask a librarian or check the library catalog to see if we own those sources.
Biography and Genealogy Master Index

In this guide, the icon indicates a licensed database that can be accessed outside the library only by UVM affiliates, using the instructions below. All users, including those not affiliated with UVM, may use these resources from a computer in the library.
