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

This page is for listing notable people who were born before the year 1500. In order to work on any of these profiles, you must be Pre-1500 certified. For more information about this, please see the Pre-1500 Profiles help page.

In order for a profile to be listed on this page, two things must be true:

  1. The subject must meet the qualifications for profiles listed on the Notables Project page.
  2. The subject must have been born before the year 1500.

If you find a profile for a notable person born before 1500 who is not listed on this page, please edit this page, and add them to the list.

Free space profiles (like this one) work pretty much the same way that profiles for people do, so all the same syntax applies. So to add a new GEDCOM, edit this page, scroll down to the place where you need to insert a new entry, and insert a new line. Then, on the new line, enter a pipe (|), then two opening square brackets ([), then the WikiTree ID for that profile, followed by another, then the person's last name, then two closing square brackets (]), then two more pipes, then repeat the WikiTree link, only this time use the person's first name, then two more pipes, then a brief (one sentence) explanation of why that person is notable, then put two more pipes between every succeeding column, like this: |[[Grubstake-1234|Grubstake]]||[[Grubstake-1234|Ferdinand]] (1451-1541) is notable for inventing the left-handed pencil.|| || || || after that, add another line, and put a pipe and a minus sign to put a line between that entry and the next one, like this: |-.

Once you have created the entry, you can fill in the values for each column, and, as a profile is improved and meets the requirements, move it from the Bronze section to the Silver section, and finally to the Gold section.

Within each section, entries are arranged alphabetically by last name, then by first name. If a person is most commonly known some name other than their name at birth, then they will be listed here under the name they are known by. Please keep the tables on this page in alphabetical order, so that it is easier for other WikiTreers to find notable people on this page.

If you want to work on a profile for a notable person, 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, move the entry for that person's profile from this page to the appropriate section.

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 provacy 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.

If you are Pre-1500 Certified, please review the list below and see if you can assist by adding these items one or more of the profiles.

Notable Profiles in need of Improvement

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.

If you are Pre-1500 certified, 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.
