People who were born in [[{{{1}}}]], [[{{{2}}}]].

The main article for this category is Born in UK. Please create and/or use it for appropriate text and to list qualifying people, places, sources, etc that may not yet have their own pages.
When this category grows, it may have subcategories for:
  • people born in the county in a specific period (tying in with the "Daily life" pages above)
  • towns or other types of [[:Category:settlements in {{{2}}}|settlement]] (but those may be better handled at CuriousFox)

[edit] [purge] Template documentation

The above template is generally all that is needed on the editable part of a category page for "Born in Abc-shire, England" (or Wales or Scotland or Northern Ireland; and see below for other European countries). Just type or paste this:

{{Born in UK|Abc-shire|England}} or {{b-uk|Abc-shire|England}}

(with appropriate local variations for county and country, e.g "|County Antrim|Northern Ireland").

The template is adaptable for any province or state or even city of any European country, possibly using separate templates for each such country so that local variations of page naming can be accommodated (for example, so that the name of the country can be appended to the introductory sentence if it is not in the page name).

This should be the "model" for improvements to other templates such as "Resided in ...", "Cemeteries in", and "Maps of". See Category talk:County navigation templates. If changing one of them, please see whether the same improvement could be made here so as to flow through to others.

The corresponding template for the Americas is Template:Born in US. (Note the small coding differences between this and that, where the county page name includes the state.) We try to add improvements to this and to that as models for the series for each continent.

Other continents may use one of these if appropriate but may need a different navbox template.
