I wasn't sure who to research today, so I picked a random name from the "on this day" page at wikipedia and went from there.

This afternoon I've created profiles for, and connected the following notables:

  1.  Curtis Bill Pepper (American Journalist and Author)
  2.  Beverly Pepper (American Sculptor)
  3. John Randolph Pepper (American photographer and theatre director)
  4. Jorie Graham (American Poet)
  5. James Galvin (American Poet)
  6. Peter M Sacks (Expatriate South African Painter and poet)
  7. Lally Weymouth (American journalist)
  8. Yann Weymouth (American Architect and designer)
  9. Tina Weymouth (American Musician)
  10. Phil Graham (American newspaper publisher)
  11. Ernest "Cap" Graham (American political figure)
  12. Katherine Graham (American newspaper publisher)
  13. Eugene Meyer (American financier and newspaper publisher)
  14. Florence Meyer (American portrait photographer)
  15. Oskar Homolka (Austrian Actor)
  16. Joan Tetzel (American Actress)
  17. Grete Mosheim (German Actress)
  18. Howard Gould (American Financier)
  19. Florence Blumenthal (American Philanthropist)
  20. George Blumenthal (German-born Banker)

Plus once a few pending merges go through Levi Strauss, the first manufacturer of blue jeans, will be connected too.

If only it were Note-vember!

Wow!  Are all of them from one basic family tree?  For some reasons, even when working with my own family, I can't get all than many new profiles done in a full day.  Of course I expect getting a source is easy when you're working from Wikipedia.  Congratulations.!

They are all connected, mostly from "going sideways". The actual connection to the global tree was from Gould-3107 to the pre-existing Gould-218.

Wikipedia makes source hunting quick work, since you already have the dates and places so you know what you are searching for from the start.
