The National Governors Association today announced a new database for the public to find information about state governors going all the way back to colonial times.

The Governors Legacy Project is intended to serve as a resource for researchers and can be searched using a number of factors, including term of office, state of birth, military service and other political offices held.

Currently the database holds more than 800 entries about the governors of 17 states and territories, Alabama through Iowa. The others are being added alphabetically, state-by-state.

"NGA hopes that everyone will be able to easily access information about the governors and learn something new from their stories of public service," Christine LaPaille, the association's communications director, said in a statement.
