This is a form that was used for very early Familypedia articles. It shows little and is not ideal for linking to other pages or for being found in most searches. Please consider instead creating articles with searchable fields, by using Form:Person, which is not noticeably more difficult; in fact, it can be easier, and the payoff is enormous.

Whichever form you use, please follow our naming conventions by adding at least a birth year or a death year in parentheses, e.g. Mary Jane Hall (1891-).

Articles created with this form are likely to be converted by someone later and may not end up the way the original author wanted.
