Anyone want to think about categorizing them by gender?

I noticed BrownHairedGirl added some of the 2nd oldest woman in France. If we decide on adding them perhaps they can be categorized below the oldest woman in France. Neal (talk) 20:15, 17 November 2007 (UTC).

I have ordered them by date of birth.
This not a "list of the oldest people in France", it is a list of French supercentenarians, who may or may not have been the oldest people in France. There is of course no reason why someone cannot create a List of the oldest people in France, offering a table which shows who followed who. Individual name entries can be linked to this list, or to individual articles if they exist. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 18:48, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
I put that list into this article. Neptune5000 (talk) 19:18, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

The people section[edit]

Could we remove the "people" section, as it is more of a bunch of "grab bag" information than an actual list? ~one of many editorofthewikis (talk/contribs/editor review)~ 19:44, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I think we should remove the people section, as most of the biographies are stubs anyway. Neptune5000 (talk) 20:05, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
I recently posted a few points about the people section at Talk:List of supercentenarians from the United States. I do not feel the people sections should just simply be removed. I think in some cases, some people ought to either be improved, or taken off the list, and others should probably have their own article. Some are simply too brief and are often just a collection of facts (such as "x became the oldest in the world in y, and was the last born in 1878"), without any prose about their life. Unless they were very notable cases, I don't think it's entirely necessary to have their own section. However I've tried to add information and citations where I can, but this tends to be for British cases due to the information I have access to. SiameseTurtle (talk) 20:08, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Why shouln't they be removed? If they deserve their own article, fine, start one. If they are not notable, remove. If it is just a collection of facts, remove too, as that is present in other superc lists. ~one of many editorofthewikis (talk/contribs/editor review)~ 20:13, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Because some are highly notable, but their subsections have very little information. They would effectively be permastubs. The advice there seems to be 'If possible, merge them into a larger article'. That's what's been done. SiameseTurtle (talk) 20:36, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
If they are so notable, then why can't we create articles for them instead of this disgracefull mess? ~one of many editorofthewikis (talk/contribs/editor review)~ 22:05, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
Some have very short articles, such as Ada Roe on the British page. She was the oldest in the world. For her, I would probably say that she deserves her own article. However for Daisy Adams and Rebecca Hewison who were 'only' oldest in the UK, I'm not so sure. What do we do with articles similar to those who were fairly notable, but have little information to make a worthwhile article on them?
Unfortunately this field seems to conflict with WP's policy of notability not being temporary. Notability in this field increases over time. I removed Charlotte Gibson from the British page a while ago and I was just thinking about giving her an article to herself. However, she was 2nd oldest in the UK, died at 110 and unfortunately even if I did move the article there, it's not going to get linked to. What I think we should do is have a section on these list pages for living supercentenarians. That way we can build up their article, and if they die 'young' (ie around 110!), and/or didn't get to a strong state of notability (eg. oldest man/woman in country), then they could be removed. If they do become quite notable, then they could be moved to their own article. Of course this would have to be judged case by case. Any deceased notable cases would be linked through the tables. SiameseTurtle (talk) 00:01, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Again, if enough verifiable info can be found on these people, we can give them an article. Lazare Ponticelli was originally a redirect to this and now, after about a month of work, is a featured article. This should be list, not permastubs of articles that no one bothered to create. ~one of many editorofthewikis (talk/contribs/editor review)~ 00:57, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Comment. I think you are way off-base here. The whole purpose of "merging" is that some persons might be notable, but not enough for a stand-alone article. It makes sense to have some biographical information where it is available. I would agree with removing such non-bios as "person X was the oldest person in the UK for years 19XX to 19XX and is the XYth oldest person in the UK ever." Such "cruft" isnt't really necessary. However, in many cases we have actual biographical information...some of these were world's oldest persons (such as Florence Knapp) and as such their notability will stand the test of time (in truth, some of these are not perma-stubs but stubs that can still be expanded, if someone bothered to do the work). If others fade over time, and are removed, then that's O.K. It's called "editing." But to carte blanche remove everyone goes against the plan worked out by Carcharoth, BHG, and many others. Note this isn't simply limited to just supercentenarians, discussed in Nov 2007, other topics also are composed of mini-bios...Ryoung122 02:54, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
  • I suggest turning the "people" section into a table, and losing the "succession boxes". The predecessor and successors can be mention in a notes section, along with links to the relevant lists. That should tidy things up a lot. No need to lose any information, except the more trivial stuff or stuff where there is no actual biographical information. Carcharoth (talk) 03:10, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Comment. Perhaps a bit COI, but I believe this data is best expressed in two ways: 1. mathematical/demographic; and 2. human interest. I would suggest for the former to create a list of every validated supercentenarian in the nation (for France, less than 90 persons). Then, about 10% of the articles, maybe 15%, can have an additional mini-bio (about a paragraph or two). In other words, a mini-bio for Camille Loiseau, who lived to 114, was France's oldest person, and the oldest verified person born in the year 1892, worldwide. Any person whose bio has an angle that is interesting/unique (Jean Teillet, first Frenchman to reach 110) could have one. On the other hand, no mini-bio for cases for whom no information other than age facts are known, or whose "achievement sheet" is notably lacking. If someone died as the 14th-oldest person in France, no mini-bio. Also, while a standalone article requires multiple independent sources, for a mini-bio we should be able to come up with at least one source that gives some biographical detail. Let's finish construction of the mathematical table, and then go back and decide which 10 or 15 cases, maybe 20 at most, warrant additional facts. Wikipedia is not paper but there must be a reasonable expectation that anyone with a mini-bio is at least somewhat unique and notable.Ryoung122 08:23, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Comment Part II.


First I'd like to go back to Nov 2007 or so. Here is what I proposed:

The understanding was that links would be used for biographies. However, the problem was that a wiki-war broke out over "notability," and some articles were under threat of deletion (even if NOT a perma-stub and had references, such as Camille Loiseau). Part of this is due to Wiki-bias in favor of presentism and in favor of English-language material. Note, for example, a person may be covered in a French newspaper, but then what? The compromise was that each mini-bio may not be individually notable, but as examples on a list, could be. In reality, it's simply not a good idea to push an either/or solution when a merger is a real solution. This is not unique to supercentenarian articles. For example, consider THIS:

It was decided that each character alone was not individually notable, but would warrant a paragraph or two of material in a merged list-format.

Sincerely, Robert YoungRyoung122 08:44, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

A problem with listing all supercentenarians from each country will inevitably be the long list. The UK has just gone over 100, so that table alone would be as long as the '100 oldest people' list (let alone the USA list). Then there's the list for the oldest living, the records, and chronological list of the oldest. If we were to list all of them, a different article for mini-bios will have to be made. SiameseTurtle (talk) 14:25, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

After looking at the Sunderland Echo page, maybe we could have a collapsable table with all the cases on? Or perhaps that would require too much updating of living cases. Just a thought anyway. SiameseTurtle (talk) 17:50, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Comment: the "people" section is useful and of interest. While some people like statistics, others like a human-interest story. There is a need for balance here. The problem is NOT the people section. The problem is that there needs to be some standards employed.

Ryoung122 02:18, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

If the person actually has a decent biography and is notable then they should have their own article. If not then it's hardly a human-interest story. An article based more around tables allows linking to articles of specific people. It's too much to expect to list every supercentenarian from one country on a single page even if you do only include those who are more notable. SiameseTurtle (talk) 19:54, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
I think there's too much focus on statistics per se. Even a one-paragraph entry may provide enough information for someone to double-check a case in the census, or at least get a sense that this is 'real' and not just some top-down 'because I said so.' Transparency is a problem with TARP, no need to make it a problem here.Ryoung122 22:23, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Maiden names[edit]

Shouldn't these people be listed as for example Marie-Clémentine Judith Solignac née Veyrac?

As far as I know, placing a maiden name in the middle is an American thing. It's certainly not used in Britain, which uses née instead, which is derived from the French language. So I assume that France uses this system too. Can anyone clarify? SiameseTurtle (talk) 19:36, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

They should be listed by the name the outside sources use. Since the media reported her as "Clementine Solignac", this seems appropriate.Ryoung122 11:42, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Templates for regions[edit]

Can someone help fix the links to flags for regions? Thanks.Ryoung122 13:30, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Flags for Martinique, Guadeloupe[edit]

Can someone change the flags for Martinique and Guadeloupe from the national French flag to the local "region" flag?Ryoung122 11:40, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Marie Coulon[edit]

I'm not sure how reliable this is, but Marie Coulon is now on the list of French super-cs born in 1898:

Mathilde AUSSANT Née le 27/02/1898 inconnu Troisième des français les plus âgés.

Marcelle NARBONNE Née le 28/03/1898 inconnu Quatrième des français les plus âgés.

Comment: That's absurd...April 4 1898 and March 29 1899 aren't the same day, month, or year...and Marie is a very common name in France.Ryoung122 01:31, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

A fair point. However it is also absurd to allow Coulon and Carrion on the French page without citations, but chastise User:Pascar for adding the likes of Grazia Carbonaro on the Italian version. Pistachio disguisey (talk) 01:40, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

There is a difference...firstly in the Carbonaro case, there was no claim made to 110+, it was to 109 a year ago...that is not the case with Coulon and Carrion which have citations (posted above) dating after their 110th you are confusing two issues.Ryoung122 01:44, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

That site does not appear to have a date, so whilst it may be accurate, I don't think that it is acceptable as a citation. Pistachio disguisey (talk) 01:56, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Mathilde Aussant[edit]

Mathilde Aussant was born in 1898. Dr. Coles is 67 years old and he sometimes makes mistakes.Ryoung122 03:15, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
Correction: Dr. Coles is 68 years old (note the irony of the correction!).Ryoung122 01:45, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

She now lives in Centre region, département Loir-et-Cher in Morée [1] Please, keep this change, if you insist she lives in Pays-de-la-Loire, add references. => the regions and departments are place of last residence!!!

Marie Audy[edit]


Here's a citation for Marie Audy:

Marie Brudieux[edit]

Please review listing, as Mme. Brudieux has been added to the list of verified Living French Super-Cs, and is about three months older than Olympe Amaury. This link refers.

Heartfelt thanks. Auto. Auto wrote 2043/06 October 2014. (talk) 20:43, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Marie-Louise Mueller[edit]

Is listed twice (one in the main list and once in the emigrant list).Ryoung122 08:42, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Emigrant list[edit]

1. How can you consider people born in the French Empire, and later died in France as emigrants? 2. You cannot shove all immigrants and emigrants together. If we did that on every page, then any supercentenarian had moved country or where there was a border change during history would not count as a national on any page. It biases the pages in favour of those who never moved country. SiameseTurtle (talk) 17:45, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Giovanna Meyer-Zittel[edit]

From what I understand, she was born in Alsace (then part of Germany) and lived there when it reverted to France, before later moving to Italy. I think the point of the "emigrant" list is sort of a "footnote" section. We shouldn't exclude people completely because they moved around a lot. It also doesn't matter to me if, for example, we have an "emigrant" who moved from the UK to the U.S. listed in the UK list and the US list. I think it's one thing to want an addenda list; it's another to delete persons entirely.Ryoung122 05:52, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

GRG Validated List Has 106 persons (not inc. emigrants)[edit]

I noticed the list in the current form has only 102 persons, but the GRG list has 106 (108 inc. emigrants):

French pending cases[edit]


Since the Italy and UK lists have added "pending" cases, I might add some of these GRG-pending French cases below:

Two Documents (two-star) 1 France Marie Margueritte Robert Jan. 9, 1893 Oct. 19, 2003 110 283 W F France 2 Algeria (FR) Jeanne Hue Oct. 2, 1895 May 5, 2006 110 215 W F France 3 France Mathilde Gratry May 12, 1896 Jan. 10, 2008 111 243 W F France 4 France Fernande Revel Sept. 2, 1898 Oct. 12, 2008 110 40 W F France 5 France Marie Audy Mar. 29, 1899 Nov. 24, 2009 110 240 W F France One Document (one-star) 1 France Marie Grosclaude Oct. 15, 1897 Dec. 20, 2007 110 66 W F France 2 France Josephine-Jeanne Faure-Geors Jan. 30, 1899 Apr. 1, 2009 110 61 W F France

If someone else wants to add them, just remember NOT to assign a numeral to them and use a color-coded blue background.Ryoung122 08:32, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Denise Fétrot[edit]

Why isn't Denise Fétrot (born 27 January 1898 in Résigny, Aisne - died 15 July 2008 in Liart, Ardennes) a pending case ? Has she been unvalidated or has nobody given a single document to begin the validation of her case yet ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:58, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Anne Primout[edit]

Please STOP REMOVING ANNE PRIMOUT. "ALGERIA" WAS "PART OF FRANCE" IN 1890 (1890-1962) AND A FRENCH COLONY, 1830-1890.Ryoung122 18:42, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

==Helene Cazes moved from "pending" to "validated." 19:56, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Marie Davit-Piacentino[edit]

Born in Italy and died in Australia, but she lived the middle part of her life in France, which is why her case came from French statistics.Ryoung122 07:27, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Regions of birth and of death[edit]


The choice of the region is curious because there aren't official regions in France before 1960's and the new regions were born the 1st January 2016. The regions in the page are the regions between 1960's and 2015. There are other errors:

  • Eugénie Blanchard was born in Saint Barthélemy but when at her birth, Saint-Barthélemy was an area of Guadeloupe;
  • Marie-Rose Mueller was born in the territoire de Belfort (traditional area of Alsace before Revolution but in Franche-Comté since 1960's);
  • Henri Pérignon, errors for regions of birth and of death.

Instead of regions, chose departments like French pages is more coherent. What do you think ? GabrieL (talk) 14:32, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
