Featured Project: The Hollywood Walk of Fame

Posted January 21, 2011 by Geni | No Comment

The entertainment industry has provided the world with film, television and music for decades. In 1958, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce began honoring those individuals who have made significant contribution to the media with stars on Hollywood Blvd. at Highland Avenue. Since then, over two thousand stars have been placed on the Walk of Fame recognizing individuals, both living and deceased, for their accomplishments. The goal of the Hollywood Walk of Fame project is to make sure that those who have received a star on the Walk of Fame are also represented on Geni.

Here’s a preview of the 368 profiles currently included in the project:

Nicole Kidman – She is an Academy Award winning actress.

Lucille Ball – She was an American comedienne, film, television, stage and radio actress.

Orson Welles – He was an American film director, writer, actor, and producer, who worked extensively in film, theatre, television and radio.

John Lennon – He achieved worldwide fame in the 1960s as a singer, songwriter and guitarist in one of the most successful bands of all time, The Beatles.

Andrew Lloyed Webber – He is an English composer of musical theater.

You can help contribute to this project and join the other 48 project collaborators in reaching their goal of including all stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Geni!
