Everything that has a Wikipedia article has an item in Wikidata (with
a possible lag of a few days for new Wikipedia articles). But many
other things also have a Wikidata item, even if there is no Wikipedia
article; or if they only appear in a "list" Wikipedia article, such as
"List of public art in Birmingham"

There are a number of options; you can put your data into Google
Sheets, and use the Wikipedia/Wikidata plugin there. Or we could ask
Edward Betts (I'm BCCing him in this mail) to use his matching tool:


after your import is done. Once matches to existing Wikidata items are
made, we can remove those from a copy of your data, and use the
remainder to create new items on Wikidata.
