Winter Update--some of our current goals

With the 'mentioned names' data complete and cleaned (thanks Teresa), we are proceeding to create new entries for the hidden travelers that have emerged (such as the wives and other relatives who are traveling, but do not appear in the headings, and therefore were hidden within the structure of Ingamells’ Dictionary). We are also working to disambiguate the full list of mentioned names in order come up with a good sense of all the persons populating the text of the dictionary (and we are considering then doing the same for all pets—dogs, birds, etc—, horses, etc :)). There is so much one can do with this data; we are starting by preparing with Cody for possible explorations in linked data, and adding mentioned names’ features in the GTE.
