What about Wikipedia?

Before you use Wikipedia as a source of biographical information about people living or dead, learn how the community is expected to create and edit biographies of living people.

In a nutshell: Material about living persons added to any Wikipedia page must be written with the greatest care and attention to verifiability, neutrailty, and avoiding original research.

Always verify any claims you find about people in Wikipedia with other sources, such as the ones listed on this guide.
