Many of the items listed below will also be on the category page in brief form. There may be little need for year pages except where the material is getting so extensive that it would make the category page too long for easy viewing of subcategories.

A year page should ideally:

  • be in the category for its year
  • link to the categories for births and deaths in that year
  • link to at least the preceding year page and the following year page
  • link to at least the English WP year page and possibly to the English WP "xxxx Births" etc if any, and to any other pages in any language that users wish to add
  • contain a calendar and lists of events (particularly relevant, eg the opening or the destruction of a public record office)

Basic structure, calendar, etc, can be copied direct from Wikipedia with the standard ({{enWP|...) acknowledgment.
