At Microsoft Academic Search, my family tree ends with Ludwig Boltzmann.
Boltzmann's advisor is known however, and in fact the tree goes back to Poda von Neuhaus in the middle of the 18th century. See http://www.genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/id.php?id=19402
Q: How do I add Jozef Stefan? I guess he does not have any electronic publications to his name, but his students are recorded.

Thank you for your interest in Microsoft Academic Search!
A profile for Josef Stefan has just been created, and should appear online within the next 48 hours. After the profile appears online, you will then be able to extend your academic family tree to the new profile.
We hope you continue to explore and enjoy our site. If you have any questions or need further assistance please do not hesitate to ask.

You missed the broader point. Josef Stefan is one of many historical scholars whose work has yet to make it into the digital age. His papers may never be digitised as his ideas are now textbook material (without attribution).
There should be a procedure for crowd-adding people like Stefan.Thanks

Is it possible for users to add themselves or other scholars that are missing manually (i.e., without admin intervention)?
If not, how do we contact the admin to get academics added?
Thanks for your help!
