Below is a sample of a family biography included in the Holt County, Missouri History published in 1917 by History Publishing Company.  These biographies are valuable for genealogy research in discovering missing ancestors or filling in the details in a family tree. Family biographies often include far more information than can be found in a census record or obituary.  Details will vary with each biography but will often include the date and place of birth, parent names including mothers' maiden name, name of wife including maiden name, her parents' names, name of children (including spouses if married), former places of residence, occupation details, military service, church and social organization affiliations, and more.  There are often ancestry details included that cannot be found in any other type of genealogical record.

RICHARD LIPPOLD. Richard Lippold lives on and with the assistance of his sons farms the J. D. Davis place of 570 acres as well as Mr. Lippold's own farm of eighty acres. They operate on a large scale, using tractors and other labor saving machinery. Ordinarily they raise 500 acres of wheat and about 300 acres of corn. They have their own threshing outfit. Mr. Lippold is assisted by his sons, Emil, Allen and Howard and by his son-in-law, James Forney. Mr. Lippold was born in Atchison County, Missouri, August 3, 1862. At the age of 3 years he moved with his parents to Richardson County, Nebraska, where his father bought a farm. It was washed away by the Missouri River when Richard was 12 years old. Then the family went to Falls City, Nebr., where the senior Lippold engaged in the mercantile business for seven years. Then they lived in the western part of Nebraska for three years. In 1883 Richard came to Holt County and for seventeen years was engaged in the saw mill business, during the winter months and farmed during the summer. Nine years ago he bought the 80-acre tract on which his eldest son lives. Four years ago he rented the large tract on which he now lives. The subject of this sketch is the son of Oswald and Rosa Lippold, natives of Germany who came to America in 1846. Richard Lippold was married in Falls City, Nebr., November 26, 1886, to Sarah Robinson, who was born in Holt County. They have four children: Emil, Allen, Howard and Mrs. May Forney, all living in Minton Township.
