Wikisource:WikiProject DNB Most wanted articles

This page is for anyone to list those articles in the Dictionary of National Biography that are "most wanted" for creation. These articles can be from any of the original 63 volumes or from the first two supplements, which are now in the public domain. In practice lists can be imported here from elsewhere, to give some structure to the business of choosing what topics to work on.

The preferred format for entries on this list is [[Surname, Given name (DNB00)|]], but that still does not allow for ambiguous names. But the important thing is to add enough information to identify the article you want added; a person who is more experienced with the project can always come by later and fix the link. Once articles have been added, they may be removed from the list.

  • 2 Here are a dozen needed because WP quotes the article and it's not created here yet:
  • Thomas Flamank (no article through 01)
  • Luigi Lablache
  • John Rennie the Elder
  • David George Ritchie
  • Henry William Stisted

3. Enforcers of Magna Carta

  • 4. Irish history, recent WP creations
  • Nugent, Christopher
