Mark Goodson Wiki



I'm Ian and I'm the founder and admin of the Mark Goodson Wiki, the Bob Stewart Wiki, the Barry & Enright Wiki, and the Heatter-Quigley Wiki. I live in the great state of Ohio and have Asperger's Syndrome, a form of Autism.

My interest in game shows started when I was 5 years old. The first game shows I remember watching were Family Feud (with Richard Dawson), Match Game (with Gene Rayburn), and Inquizition all on GSN. I have always admired and respected Mr. Mark Goodson, and I have always wanted to produce and host my own game shows.

I decided to create a Wiki to honor and remember Mr. Goodson and his work. The Mark Goodson Wiki was created on my personal website in 2012, but I founded the Wikia version on April 17, 2013. This wiki is designed to cover the life and work of television producers Mark Goodson and Bill Todman.

I have since created three additional wikis: The Bob Stewart Wiki was created on October 21, 2013 and is designed to cover everything there is to know about television producer Bob Stewart and his shows.

The Barry & Enright Wiki was created on February 21, 2014 and is designed to cover everything there is to know about television producers Jack Barry and Dan Enright and their shows.

The Heatter-Quigley Wiki was created on May 6, 2014 and is designed to cover everything there is to know about television producers Merrill Heatter and Bob Quigley and their shows.

I enjoy learning about history, especially local and US history. I also enjoy researching my family history (genealogy) and spend most of my free-time doing so. My ancestry (in order of distance): German, Native American, Irish, French, Scottish, Welsh, Austrian, Swiss, Belgian, Danish, Dutch, English, Jewish, Spanish, Hungarian, Greek, Portuguese, Russian, Ukrainian, Serbian, Armenian, Polish, Czech, Bulgarian, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Luxembourgian, Belarusian, Turkic/Turkish, Basque, Syrian, Saudi Arabian, Georgian, and Iranian. I also have unconfirmed Libyan [Greek], Indian, Israeli [Jewish], Afghani, Nepali, Yemeni, Bengali, Jordanian, Pakistani, Berber, and Egyptian [Greek] ancestry.
