This template is in wide use on Wikipedia. However due to insufficient numbers of contributors to Genealogy wikia, there are not enough folks to come to concensus on such disputes concerning content or supportability of facts. Contributors are urged to use their best judgement and to proactively resolve issues independently in the spirit of assuming good faith and wiki civility. These templates that may appear in transported WP origin articles have been disabled in the meantime. If you are re-enabling this template, kindly announce this at the Watercooler.



The template documentation below is transcluded from Template:Fact/doc [edit]

Enter this tag in the body of an article as a request for other editors to find citations:

  1. to label a passage which is incomplete without a cited source of information
  2. to label a quotation which lacks a citation, as per Citing sources.

Unsourced or poorly sourced contentious material about living persons should be removed immediately, not tagged. See Wikipedia.

To find all pages that use this template, see Category:All articles with unsourced statements. These categories are subcategories of Category:Articles with unsourced statements. For articles which lack sources, please visit Category:Articles lacking sources.

This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikia project rather than the genealogical content.

Usage

You may use the optional date parameter, e.g. {{Fact|date=December 2021}}. This helps with the categorisation of articles requiring citations.

The simplest way to add this template to an article is to copy and paste {{Fact|date=December 2021}} at the appropriate place or use {{subst:Fact-now}}
