Article started


I looked for an article on the Trapp Family (aka von Trapp Family) itself, as opposed to its individual members, and did not find one, hence this start... previously the page existed only as a redirect. I have not had a chance to add much content as yet but please feel free to expand it into a fully fledged article. Regards Tony Tony 1212 (talk) 09:02, 31 December 2019 (UTC)Reply

I spent a while expanding the article and it has grown a bit, although others feel free to improve further. Cheers Tony Tony 1212 (talk) 01:38, 10 January 2020 (UTC)Reply

Incorrect photo?


User @Grandeland: has changed the caption of the file from Wikipedia Commons "Von Trapp family house (4241260148).jpg" which I had added to the article believing it to be the original Von Trapp family house in Salzburg, to "Schloss Leopoldskron, Max Reinhardt's home used in the The Sound of Music , photographed in 2009". In fact, the photo appears to show Schloss Frohnburg, used as an exterior location in the film, however I am only going from the picture, and have no personal knowledge of the buildings concerned. If either of these is the case, the photo should be removed since neither would be the real Von Trapp family house. I am happy to do so, but will await comments for a little while in case others can confirm the identity of the house shown (in which case, the caption to the image on Wikimedia Commons should also be corrected).

Film should be mentioned and hyperlinked in the lede and text


I added a reference to the film version of the Broadway musical, i.e. The Sound of Music (film), to the lede and the text, once or twice in the past but someone has deleted it multiple times. In my view, definitely pertinent to this article, being based on the life of the Trapp Family, as well as hugely successful and probably better known to very many around the world than the original stage production. Not wishing to start an edit war by just adding it back, so can we discuss here please, why it should not be there? Tony 1212 (talk) 23:48, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply

OK, refs to the film now added back to lede and text... please no more deletions, at least without first discussing it here... Tony 1212 (talk) 19:40, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply
Guess what, it's happening again:
"Dear Tony 1212, The Wikipedia page Trapp Family has been changed on 24 September 2022 by anonymous user ... To view this change, see"
No explanation of course, and no identity. Trolling in my book, but hey, I'm outta here, better things to do than fight pointless battles with unidentifiable entities on Wikipedia. To quote Monty Python: This isn't an argument, it's just contradiction. No it isn't... Yes it is...Tony 1212 (talk) 18:19, 24 September 2022 (UTC)Reply
