Wikipedians in our Family
"Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia", was launched in 2001 by Jimbo Wales. It now includes more than five million pages which describe and document many different subjects. I use Wikipedia from time to time for various kinds of research and have noticed that a few of the people to whom I am related happen to have their own pages, or are mentioned in pages on other subjects. I will list them here and will update this page whenever I discover more...
- Their own pages. The following family members have their very own pages in Wikipedia:
- Mentions. The following persons are mentioned in pages on other subjects:
- Plumb Tools. Although my uncle Fayette R. Plumb II doesn't have his own Wiki-article, there is an all-too-brief article about the tool company which once bore his name, and which was founded by his family.
- Winans. There are numerous Winans family members listed in the pages of this family album. To see a few, go to our Table of Contents. We've transcribed more than half of a book dedicated to the Winans family and made it available here. To see what Wikipedia has to offer, go to their Winans "disambiguation page" All of the people whose names you see there are distantly related to us!
