I looked through it for biographies of people who seemed notable enough for Wikipedia. Many of them were lawyers or business executive who didn't seem to be of interest today, but then I found Crosby Stuart Noyes, who founded a newspaper, the Evening Star, that ran until 1981. I also worked on the entries for his sons Theodore W. and Frank Brett, who also worked at the newspaper. It was quite a dynasty: two further generations worked at the paper, and some of them already had stub entries.
- Google for her name and assemble a list of references and sources,
- go through all of the sources drawing facts from each source that I hadn't previously found in other sources
- write sentences or paragraphs based on these facts,
- and then massage it into a coherent flow.
Outlining a biography is hard! Right now I only have a scattered pile of facts, and they're largely tied to the 1910s suffrage struggle. I know nothing of her life beyond her birthplace, and her later life in Florida is also vague -- she was on the civic planning board for 14 years, but what she did is still unknown. I may only end up with a stub article, but that'll still be something.
