Project: Notables List

Categories: Notables Project


This page is a sub-page of the Notables Project.

The profiles listed on this page fall under the Notables Project. A person may be notable, but if their profile falls under another WikiTree project, then it shouldn't be listed here (and it should have the Notables Sticker ({{Notables Sticker}}), rather than the Notables template ({{Notables}}), applied to it).

Profiles are 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 Notes column on the table. Once you've completed the task, remove your name, and move the entry to the next section.

From Wikipedia (or other sources) please list date/place of birth and date/place of death. Please make the profile 'project protected', if you are a leader, or ask one of the Project Leaders (Scott, Bob, Erin, or Abby) to do so for you.

Thanks for helping us grow our global family tree! If you have questions about this page, or anything else to do with the Notables Project, please contact one of the leaders of the Notables Project, or else post a message on the G2G Forum, and put notables into the tag box.

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:

  • Either the Notables template ({{Notables}}) or the Notables Sticker ({{Notables Sticker}}) need to be added. (Use the template if the Notable Project is set as profile manager, and the sticker if it isn't.)
  • The privacy level should be set to "Open" for deceased notables. If there is some reason not to set the privacy to "Open", then wikitree-notables-project@googlegroups.com should be added as Profile Manager.
  • If the person has a Wikipedia entry, both their Wikipedia entry and their Wikidata entries should be noted under "See also".
  • The appropriate categories should be added.

Please review the list below and see if you can assist by adding these items to one or more of the profiles.

Even once a profile has the appropriate markers, it often needs further improvement to add:

  • A narrative biography.
  • Genealogical sources to support statements in the biography.
  • Non-copyrighted pictures.
  • Profiles for family members to connect that profile to the main tree.

Please review the list below and see if you can assist by improving upon one or more of the profiles. If you do manage to connect an unconnected profile to the tree, please contact one of the leaders of the Notables Project, or else post an answer on the latest monthly Notables thread on the G2G Forum so that you and your accomplishment can be recognized.
