Hear Ye, Hear Ye

If you are interested in people who are famous, notable, noted, significant, important, historic, heroic, or otherwise fascinating, then the Notables Project might be for you!

The idea behind this post is for anyone who needs help with connecting Notables to the tree to post to this thread and ask for help.

Or if you just want to tell us whom you have successfully connected up.

Or if you even want to JOIN the Notables project and get a badge

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Notables

Above is the Notables Project page where you can find unconnected Notables who have profiles and who need to be connected to the tree.

Please remember to concentrate on those Notables who have already passed (died), so that we can see their profiles. If you create a profile for a living Notable, that profile WILL GO UNLISTED and noone can see it except for the PM and anyone on the trusted list!

And remember - Notables should have a Wikipedia page at the very least to qualify. And they preferably should be DEAD!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deaths_in_2018

Above is a list of those who have passed in 2018

Happy New Year!!!!

OK Link to this thread from the Notables page has been updated for January. I will have to remember to update that link every month!!

Bill Cullen

Garry Moore (profile was already there, added more info)

Open for suggestions on others or willing to help on yours.
Hi Everybody,

I don't know if everybody knows who Alistair and Hetty Tayler are or were, but anyway, I checked and noticed that they were not here on wikitree, so I have added them, researched and connected and basically sorted their tree. They were Historical Writers, are on Wikipedia, and wrote The Book of the Duff's. I have done a bit of work on them, hope I've done the right thing and I wondered if I could get a critique from the group. Tayler-231 and Tayler-234.

I thought I had asked to join the group, but maybe I haven't. I added the tag but don't have a badge yet.

Thanks.
Hi, Could I be added to the Notables project? I'm interested in Notable Australians and Notable Women in History (possible new sub project).

Thanks!

Virginia
Certainly Virginia. I'll have Scott get you a badge...

Scott? Scott? yoohoo?? LOL
Hello Virginia - Welcome to the Notables Team!
Sorry David - just saw your post about the badge. It has now been awarded. Welcome to the Notables Team!
Mike - you might try looking at this list:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:American_game_show_hosts

I don't know how many of these have already been created, but it seems like a rather large list (330 when I pulled it up) of potential television personalities who have been game show hosts and it would be an interesting venture to create more of them and link them to the global tree.
Thanks Scott

Thanks for allowing me to add some notables that I have come across in my research.  I appreciate having the badge and being part of this project.  I will start by adding William Tyler Page a long time congressional page and author of the 'American Creed'.  Also will add to Notables two of the three Mormon witnesses to Joseph Smith's Golden Plates.

Have any of you tried relativefinder.org? It's free, like this site and FamilySearch.org In fact, you sign in with your FamilySearch ID and password, and, based on your genealogy there, is creates a spreadsheet which you can modify, with a list of notables you're related to. It includes a lot of Mormon categories, such as BYU and LDS related notables, but you can deselect them, and/or select the types of people you're particularly interested in, such as European royalty, actors, entertainers, U.S. President, Mayflower passengers, etc.
