November 2019 BioBuilders - People born in November

This month’s Bio Builders Challenge theme is people born in the month of November. Everyone have fun.

Thank you for your support.

Here's our checklist:

Data Section:

  • birth date/place
  • names of parents
  • marriage date/place and spouse name
  • names of children, if any
  • death date/place

Biography Section:

  • Written (full) sentences stating the facts above, adding inline sources to each fact.
  • Is the profile '''Genealogically Defined?'''
  • As a general rule biographies should be in your own words. Paraphrase and rewrite, don't copy/paste.
  • Baptism, burial, military, and other life events with inline sources.
  • Something to "humanize" the person, such as career or avocation with sources.
  • List of children with at least one pertinent fact.
  • Some list siblings. (I think this takes up real estate.)
  • Explanatory remarks, if needed (e.g. disputed persons information, Research Notes, whatever needs extra explaining).
  • Photos or pictures, background. Not a must, but nice (you need to own the copyright unless they are in the public domain).
  • Categories.
  • Connection to the Global Tree.
  • All duplicates merged or initiated.
  • Links to persons and events, perhaps from Wikipedia.
  • Historical context as related to the person's life.
  • Sources, Sources, Sources.

You can see some ideas on where to find some of this information on the Biography Builders space page.

NOTE: Biography Builders will not show on the tracker. Please add a list to your answer.

I will be happy to do this months
I just checked out the spreadsheet and September hasn't been added yet. Will it be added to the stas, soon?
Stats should be up soon.
Thank you :)

What about people that were baptized in November and the date of birth is not known?

Ummmmm, OK. I always try to give everyone a break when it comes to biographies.
How can I see the spreadsheet?
