My Genealogy Hound is a new site to view thousands of family biographies from early and rare history and genealogy references. These biographies can often be valuable for discovering details about ancestors in your family tree research. You can browse by state and county or by family surname. Since the site is fairly new, there are just ten states available, so you'll have to check to see if your ancestor's place of residence is included.
Additional family biographies are being added continually. They also offer a newsletter which will update you weekly of the latest additions. A free collection of county map images is also available, although only about ten states are presently included here.
The website is free at this time; check it out at www.mygenealogyhound.com
