Hi all At a meeting of the Genealogy SA Research and Development Committee I offered to provide a session on writing biographies for Wikipedia.
Triggers for this were: - my experience finding obituaries and other sources in Trove that appeared to justify an article, or allowed significant expansion of a stub. Often for politicians and sportspeople there is already a stub that can be filled out. - finding that a number of the articles apparently written by family historians were not encyclopedic in their selection of information nor well presented. It looks like there will be a 1.5 hour session: - an intro to WP - familiarisation with Wikiproject Biography (WP:Notability) - WP:RS - Using hardcopy and online resources, (WP:Citing sources) Any thoughts, comments, offers to work on the project. Is anybody else already doing something along these lines? Regards Paul Foord
