For adoption to good home - J.L. Kraft's family [closed]

+8 votes

Gaile's post about Sylvester Stallone's family reminded me of some profiles that I'm looking to unload to shorten up my watchlist. When I moved here, I was somewhat surprised to learn that J.L. Kraft (yes, the Kraft Foods guy) was born in Stevensville, which is now part of Fort Erie. It's nice to know that a local boy made good, and I did some searching and put together a small family tree for him, but I haven't been able to connect them to the larger tree. And, to be honest, I have enough problems in my own family tree that need to be fixed that it could be months or years (if ever) before I get back to the Krafts to do anything more about them. That seems to be a little unfair to them, especially since J.L. is definitely notable. So if anybody thinks they might be related to the Krafts, or has a special interest in the Niagara region (or Illinois), or just really likes cheese, I'd be happy to hand over the reins, as it were.

Technically since he's an open profile and you have the Notables Team as manager, you can stay on the Trusted list (or not - up to you) and remove yourself as manager without any impact to others to be able to update the profile. So you should be OK to drop off it all the way if you like and it will remain open for future edits.


That works for J.L. Kraft, since he's notable, but if I took myself off the rest of the family, they'd be orphaned. I'd prefer to hand them over to somebody. What about you, Lianne?

I connected Kraft to the tree! The connection should show up tomorrow morning. His great great grandfather is Martin Beam, who is 19 degrees from A.J. Jacobs. :)
