How To Join notables.gif

Current Leaders: Scott Fulkerson, Bob Fields, and Erin Breen

Project Coordinators:Matt Pryber, and Elizabeth Winter

For a full list of participants, see the badge report.

If you would like to be involved in the Notables project, please do the following:

  1. Add notables to your list of followed tags. That way you'll see all of our discussions in your G2G Feed.
  2. Ask Scott to award you the Notables Project badge, as well as read below to see what special guidelines might come along with being a member of the project.


The goals of this project are:

  1. Identify "famous" and "notable" people who should have a profile. If you'd like ideas for how to add, you might see WikiTree's "Today in History", Wikipedia's "Today in History" event lists. You can find these at<Month>_<Day>, e.g. <> or through lists such as Academy Award nominees and winners or Nobel Prize winners.
  2. Add those people to WikiTree.
    • Add the Notables template to the biography {{Notables}}.
    • After initial creation, edit the profile to set certainty of each relevant field.
    • Living Notables should have privacy level set to Public Biography and Family Tree, and their deceased family should be set to Open. Likewise, all deceased Notables and their family should be set to Open. It is important that everyone is able to contribute to profiles of this kind.
    • Add as Profile Manager if the profile privacy is not Open.
      1. Click the Privacy tab on the notable profile.
      2. In the Add to Trusted List section, enter and press ADD THIS PERSON.
      3. In the Trusted List section, select the link for to "Add as Manager."
    • If the person has a Wikipedia entry:
      • Add "See also:" under the Sources section, and then add "* Wikipedia: [[wikipedia:Person_Name|Person Name]]" on a new line, replacing "Person_Name" with whatever is in the URL for their entry on Wikipedia after the last slash. (In other words, if the Wikipedia URL is, then that line should read "* Wikipedia: [[wikipedia:Elizabeth_II|Elizabeth II]]".)
      • Click on the "Wikidata item" link in the left-hand menu of their Wikipedia entry, and note the number you see on the top line in medium-sized grey type that begins with "Q". Add "* {{Wikidata|Q1234567|enwiki}}" on a new line, replacing "Q1234567" with the number you have noted. (For example, Queen Elizabeth's Wikidata number is "Q9682".)
      • Scroll down the Wikidata page, and check to see if there is a WikiTree ID entry. If not, click on the "+ add" link at the bottom of the page, type "WikiTree ID" into the property box (it should bring up a match after you type the first few letters), enter that person's WikiTree ID into the next box, and click on "save". (For example, Queen Elizabeth's WikiTree ID is "Windsor-1".)
  3. Properly categorize each person by their accomplishments and also by dates of significance.
  4. Write a biography focused on genealogically relevant information (parents, birth/marriage/death date/location, spouse/children), with a very brief overview of major accomplishments (to support categorization) and links to detailed online information about their accomplishments.
  5. Add a photograph (image) of the Notable, from some publicly available source such as wikipedia.
  6. Add all of the members of that person's family for whom you can find dates and sources to WikiTree, in order to connect them to the main tree. For more information on connecting people to the main tree and how to do it, see the Connectors Project page.
  7. 9th May 2016 - Wikipedia have deleted this template on the grounds that you cannot link from Wikipedia to Wikitree when Wikitree links to Wikipedia. Add a link back to WikiTree's family for the Notable on their Wikipedia page. Here are the template creator, John Dixon's, instructions; "There is a Template on Wikipedia that can be added to articles about people. It should be added in the External links section at the end of the article. Use this code {{Wikitree name|pppp}} replacing pppp with the profile name e.g. Niven-216. There is an example at: David Niven. There is an optional parameter which allows you to replace This person with a specific name. That code is {{Wikitree name|pppp|name=nnnn}} replacing nnnn with the replacement text. Anyone can edit Wikipedia but if you intend doing a lot it would be courteous to join their website. Note that it is customary for their users to adopt pseudonyms rather than their real names.

Don't worry if how to do any of the above isn't totally clear. It will become clearer when you get started, and you can ask for help on anything in G2G.

Qualifications for Profiles

We use Wikipedia's standards for notability. Note, though, that many notable people do not yet have a page on Wikipedia. Feel free to ask Project Leaders about whether someone meets the guidelines, or read through them yourself and use your best judgment. Many, many important people are not on WikiTree yet!

People In Need of a WikiTree Profile

Profiles are currently arranged alphabetically by last then first name. If you want to work on building a profile for the person, building their biography, or connecting them to the existing WikiTree tree, edit this page section to sign your name by adding four tildes (~~~~) in the Biography column on the table. Once you've completed the task, mark it as done next to your name.

From Wikipedia (or other sources) please list date/place of birth and date/place of death if not living, so the profile can be easily added. If still living, and their birth date is public knowledge, please add WikiTree-12 ( as profile manager and make the person 'project protected', if you are a leader, or ask Scott, Bob, Erin, or Abby, the Project Leaders to do so for you. This allows project members with an interest in improving the profile to be added to the trusted list and edit the profile and add ancestors. Please keep in alphabetical order by last name, so they can easily be found.

Thanks for helping us grow our global family tree! If you have questions about profiles on this list, feel free to contact Scott or Bob.

Notable Profiles in need of Notables Project markers

Even once a profile has been added to WikiTree, there are a few things which need to be added if it belongs in the Notables Project: the Notables template to the biography ({{Notables}}) needs to be added, the privacy level needs to be set to "Public Biography and Family Tree" for living notables, and "Open" for deceased notables, needs to be set as Profile Manager for Notables' profiles which aren't Open, if the person has a Wikipedia entry, both their Wikipedia entry and their Wikidata entries should be noted under "See also", and the appropriate categories should be added. Please review the list below and see if you can assist by adding these items one or more of the profiles.

County Namesakes (just an idea so far, from Elizabeth Winter), or should it be "US County Namesakes"? - people who have had counties named after them. Certainly some profiles already exist (Washington, Franklin, Jefferson are obvious examples) which would then need the tag added, and a note as to which states have counties named after them. Others will need profiles created and connected.
