Anyone, member or not, may submit a biography of any woman in Nevada, (either born and raised in Nevada, or who spent some of her life here) whom she/he deems to be of interest to Nevada’s history.  She need not be outstanding in politics, activism or professional work, as long as her life story would be interesting to other women.  All races, nationalities, and ethnic backgrounds are sought in order to make our Web Site as complete as possible.

Please read the following requirements for submission: 
[Please note that when preparing First Ladies Biographies the following vital statistics must be included (except in the case of a living First Lady):  1) Date and location of birth/ death 2) City/Town of burial.]
