Bind data to list of checkboxes and maintain checked status

Hi Experts, 


In a Blazor Server app, I'm working with a sete of checkboxes that are created from a list in a table. The table has the following model:

    public partial class PeopleA
    {
        public string Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
       
    }


I've created another class that I will use to bind to checkbox:


    public partial class PeopleB
    {
        public string Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }

        public bool? IsChecked { get; set; }      
    }


And then populate the lists using:


    List<PeopleA> PA = new List<PeopleA>();
    List<PeopleB> PB = new List<PeopleB>();

    protected override async Task OnInitializedAsync()
    {
        PA = await Task.Run(() => MyService.GetPeople());
        foreach (PeopleA v in PA)
        {
            PeopleB.Add(new PeopleB { Id = v.Id, Name = v.Name });
        }
    }


I have two questions:

1. is this the correct/best way to do this?

2. how do I now bind this list to my checkboxes so that my checkboxes retain the checked value?
