Michelle - did you ask the PM to open the privacy on the profile yet? I see he went in and added the date of death, but left the profile in "yellow" privacy.
Yes, I just did.
Very cool - thanks!! :)

Hats-off for Willem Vermeulen, a very generous Dutch Wikitree contributor, who just pushed the Koch male line back a further 3 generations ⁠— much like David's generous philanthropy toward social progress!

Very impressive seeing that done in 40 minutes, with quality primary sources, no less! And great find with that photo of his father:

I connected David Koch back many generations through his grandmother Mary Kip Robinson.  He and I are 10th cousins, once removed.
