This table lists notables who have profiles on WikiTree that are not yet connected to the main tree.

  • The "Branch Size" number is the total number of profiles in the branch that contains that notable's profile. (If the branch size is 1, it means that that notable has not been linked to any parent, spouse, or child's profile.)
  • The "Name" is the full name for that notable, or the name by which they are commonly known.
  • The "Last Name At Birth" is normally that notable's last name at birth. (If that notable is from a culture which does not use last names, then the Last Name At Birth will be whatever is used in that person's WikiTree ID.)
  • The "Country" cell includes any country where somebody from that branch was born. (Note that many branches spread over more than one country, so you may miss some branches that are at least partly in the country you're looking for if you sort the table by this column. To make sure that you find all of them, try searching within this page using Control-F if you're running Linux or Windows, or Command-F if you're running macOS.)
  • The "Notable As" cell is a short description of why that person is considered to be notable.
  • An asterisk (*) in the "Five Star" column means that that person's profile is considered "5 star". In other words, it has received at least 1,000 total views from at least 100 separate visitors in the past year. These profiles need special attention to improve them, and help WikiTree put our best foot forward. See Chris' announcement, "Will you help us improve the most-visited profiles?" for more details.
  • The "Badge Needed" column will say "1700" if that notable was born before 1700, or "1500" if that notable was born before 1500. If you want to work on pre-1700 profiles, you need to take the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. If you want to work on pre-1500 profiles, you need to request a Pre-1500 Certification.
  • If there is an asterisk (*) in the "1900" column, it means that person was alive in the year 1900. This is to mark profiles that are eligible for inclusion in La Belle Époque Project.

The default sort for the list is first by whether the person is a "5 star" notable, then by the number of profiles in that branch, then by coutry, then by surname, then by given name, but you can sort the list by any column (Branch Size, Name, Last Name At Birth, Country, Notable As, or Working On) by clicking on the sort symbol in the header for that column.

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 show that you are working on a branch, edit this page, scroll down to the listing you want to work on, and replace the number at the end of the line with two opening square brackets ([), then your WikiTree ID, then a pipe (|), then your name, then two closing square brackets (]), like this: [[Example-123|Ferdinand Grubstake]].

Similarly, when you connect a branch (or discover one that's already connected), add Connected (or Found connected) and then the date. Put three single quotes (') before and after "connected" to put it into bold, like this: "'Connected'" February 29, 2020. One of the page pruners will then delete that entry in a couple of weeks, after everybody has had a chance to celebrate the new connection.

Feel free to add more unconnected notables, but please do not add notables whose profiles are not set to Open. Connecting is hard enough without having to deal with privacy restrictions.

For more places to find unconnected notables, see the "Resources" section at the bottom of this page.

This time around checking this list, I found three newly-connected profiles, and found linked relatives for four notables who had been stuck at the bottom of the list with a branch size of one. I also moved a bunch of profiles out of this list to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Unconnected_World_Leaders and the new https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Unconnected_Archivists and https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Unconnected_Nobel_Laureates pages.

I'm working through the page, marking people as connected if they're connected, and changing the branch size where more family members have been added. I'm excited at how many profiles that used to be unlinked now have family members linked. The section with a branch size of "1" is still the largest, but we're making progress. Thank you!

I think Geronimo is connected, if I understand connections correctly. His wives and some of their spouses have profiles. I'm trying to remember or find the name of his grand daughter or great grand daughter who spoke at a Native conference I attended in New York State in the '90s to work back from her as well.
posted by Lorraine O'Dell M.L.S.
There's a difference between being linked to other profiles and connected to the main tree. If you look at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hansberry-31 and scroll down to the bottom of that page, you'll see a block of text that starts with "Lorraine is 37 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor, 42 degrees from Tony Blair,..." Any profile that has that block of text near the bottom is "connected". Any profile that doesn't is not "connected". It may be "linked", but the term "connected" only applies if there is a connection to the "main tree" which has millions of profiles all connected to one another. The next-largest branch has a little over 3,000 profiles. That's a lot of profiles, but it's not the same as being connected to the main tree.

I added/connected Oscar Wilde’s only grandson to his profile. Oscar Wilde is not connected to the “big” tree yet, but I am working on that.
posted by Nikki (Stegall) Davis
Oscar Wilde shows as connected now.

Should not Salvador Dalí be possible to connect via his wife Дьяконова-1 to Heiroth-1? Heiroth-1 brother might have been Alexander Alexandrovich Heiroth 1851-1902. His son might be Alexander Alexandrovich von Heiroth and his wife Lidia Heiroth (Diakonova) might be sister to Дьяконова-1.

Ah. We don't go on "might be" here. We look for sources so we can say "is".
posted by Greg Slade
Ofcourse, it's the reason I wrote "might have" instead of "would"! It's just hints for anyone with knowledge in Russian sources (St Petersburg to start with for Alexander Alexandrovich Heiroth). I have no clue about these source and will not add any profile outside Sweden. It's possible three new profiles that needs to be added to connect over 600 other profiles.
posted by Axel Svensson
Ah. Okay, I misunderstood your meaning. But yes, I would love to find somebody who can handle Russian sources. Among other people, not a single cosmonaut is connected to the main tree yet.
posted by Greg Slade
I have connected Boberg-57 to the big tree, he is not unconnected anymore.
posted by Axel Svensson
THANK YOU! I've been waiting for so long to see him connected!
posted by Greg Slade
It took some time but the connections was much closer to me than I thought. Our tenant's great grandfather's brother was married to Carl's daughter. I did later found a connection to our tenant's ancestors even if I had to add another 10+ profiles to connect the trees.

PS. Sweden needs another unconnected nobel in the list now! :)

Okay, then. I've added four prime ministers. But please don't ignore Åke Kromnow. Archivists do seem to be harder to source, but their work is so essential to our work that I would like to honour them.

NZ archivist Judith Sidney Hornabrook now connected - possibly show tomorrow. Walter Nash looks to be also.
posted by Kylie Fowler
Thank you for connecting Judith Hornabrook, Kylie! I root for archivists to be identified, sourced, and connected, but I have found them to be hard to do! Good job!

Oh, and my bad on Walter Nash. I knew from the Quest for Great-Grandparents: Kiwi Edition challenge that he'd been connected, but I forgot to check for him on this page!

All the NZ ones are now connected and will show tomorrow probably, except Jonah Lomu. I have never managed that one.

I've managed to work out the table editing and have added that they are connected.

Kylie, WikiTree+ still lists 122 unconnected Kiwi notables. I use the "Unconnected Notables" link near the bottom of the page, and then edit the URL in the address bar to specify a country. Thus, https://wikitree.sdms.si/function/WTWebProfileSearch/Profiles.htm?Query=unconnected+notables+new+zealand is the list of unconnected notables who have some connection to New Zealand. You seem to be able to connect them pretty much as quickly as I add them to the page, so maybe it would be more efficient for you just to work through the report, and then we can add anybody who you can't connect to this page. What do you think?
posted by Greg Slade
Yep, I'll have a go. I get a bit lost in the Wiki+ reports but with instructions I should be fine! Cheers!
posted by Kylie Fowler
The list is officially at 117 now but there are, at least, ten more to come off when refreshed. Ryan-3199 and Jackson-11420 should definitely go on your list though. I've done what I can on NZ part of Bill Jackson and still haven't found a connection and Frank Ryan is a 1930's birth with no parents. I won't be able to do any of the Maori names on the last page either, I doubt.
posted by Kylie Fowler
I've added Ryan-3199, but you don't need to worry about Jackson-11420. He's not a notable. (I know his profile has the sticker, but there's no Wikipedia entry for him.)
posted by Greg Slade
But he is Peter Jackson's father;-)
