We want the disambiguation pages on Wikisource - I checked a few of these and there are a lot of women and "younger sons" in them that we want. Also, many can be connected to existing "family of ..." pages or name disambiguation pages - they definitely help enrich our understanding of the problems of disambiguation over time.

I'm guessing you're talking about pages in https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Category:Author_disambiguation_pages (which only exist on en.ws) but they are in the Author: namespace and (if Im' not mistaken) the WS search tool here only look in the main namespace (as it's focused on editions).

So this is a bit besides this mail thread but still, you are very right, for people in particular and for everything in general, disambig pages are indeed important and ideally the tool should not just discard them as 'not edition' (if technically possible to spot them obviously).
