The Bio Spore is a spore for a biographical dictionary on people of historical interest. Because of scale and privacy issues, this is limited in scope, at least initially, to the subset of people who lived and died in the 20th century or earlier and have a modicum of coverage, or who are of genealogical interest, being close relatives of historical figures with articles on Wikipedia.
This will include persons who fulfill the criteria of being both:
- Having lived and died before the 21st century
- Either having a modicum of coverage in sources on their own, or being within two degrees of separation of someone with a Wikipedia article (e.g. a grandparent)
