GenealogyEdit

I question the value in the recent addition of distant genealogical ties. "Fourth cousin, six times removed" etc is really streching it. I'd propose most if not all of the tree has little significance to the article itself, and reads like a hobbyist data-mining for 'famous' connections. Is it really needed?--cjllw ʘ TALK 02:52, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

I agree. Take it out. Others would call it vandalism. It's a waste of space. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.111.109.106 (talk) 01:25, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
It's removed now. --cjllw ʘ TALK 23:57, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Mexico bookEdit

Should mention how he gained wide scholarly respect with his Mexico book, even though he had never actually been in Mexico... AnonMoos (talk) 02:03, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Revamp - May 2010Edit

I will be making fairly major edits to the article over the next few weeks, and hope to get it to a much better quality. Anyone who's interested in this subject is welcome to assist, whether by expanding current information, adding more sources or just checking my work for errors. Thanks.

Peck's workEdit

If anyone can find a free ebook of [1], I will be very much indebted to them. Thanks. Claritas § 11:40, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Wrong brotherEdit

I just read the W. Prescott article. It has the wrong Von Humboldt brother. It refers to William (the linguist) when it should be referring to Alexander (the naturalist and new world explorer). Prioranalytics (talk) 03:02, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
