The Gazetteer for Scotland currently includes encyclopedic entries for about 2700 notable people (in addition to its about 23,000 places), with mini-biographies, and a page of cross-references to places in Scotland particularly associated with them. This would be a useful resource to cross-reference and link out to.

For constraint control, project monitoring, Mix'n'match, etc, it is useful to have this separate property for the people IDs, distinct from the ID proposed for places.  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jheald (talk • contribs) at 23 septembre 2019, 13:12 (UTC).
