To identify the listing of all the Patriot Biographies that have been entered into the database, we have established a Patriot named “Index” - ‪#‎P‬-334038 in the Patriot and Grave Index. We have expanded the Index to alphabetize by State of service for the Patriots. Hopefully, this will enable a more specific search when looking for a biography entry.
