Inspired by the famous people thread in the forum, add your link to a profile page of celebrities here by country of origin. Please add a category, title and short description to each celebrity. That will make it easier to re-organise should the list become too long. I suggest to qualify as a celebrity, there should be a reference to an article in wikipedia and the Geni profile should be publicly viewable. ("about" and timeline)


  • Art's & Entertainment - Musicians, composers, dancers, writers, painters, sculptors (please add)
  • Politics - Presidents, freedom fighters, dictators (please add)
  • Academia - Philosophers, scientists, (please add)
  • Athlete - Baseball players, soccer players, golfers, runners, swimmers. Any sports celebrity.
  • Royal & Military - Emperors, Dictators, Kings, Queens, prince(sses), Lords, Ladys, Earls, Dukes, Generals,

(We should keep the categories to a minimum, I'll say max 10 to avoid making it too cumbersome)
