Introduction to a dataset: 70 Dictionary of National Biography articles with vital data added by Ed Pope
25 out of 65 ODNB articles where I have suggested changes have now (May 2018) been amended in line with my suggestions, though in many cases only some of my suggestions have been adopted. Most of these articles have credited my website in the sources (John Flaxman and Thomas Smith of Derby not). Many of my suggestions were very slight, but in several cases they involved substantial errors of fact (Charles Dibdin, Eliza Fenwick, Thomas Gaugain, Francis Jukes, Henry Robert Morland, Willey Reveley). All these suggestions were sent to ODNB by 2016. The ODNB was updating its website which means there was a "datafreeze" for 2 years but that is now long over.. All my suggested changes (apart from John Raphael Smith and his father Thomas Smith of Derby, see Background Article 3 Wives, 3 Husbands Living) are now under their names in the Amendments to Oxford DNB dataset in A-Z of Names & Addresses on this website..
