Research Note Box for Estimated Dates

This Research Note Box should be used when a date is a rough estimate.

To use it, just insert {{Estimated Date}} at the top of the profile, above the == Biography == headline like this:

{{Estimated Date}}
== Biography ==

{{Estimated Date}} assumes that the estimated date is a birth date. If it's a death or marriage date, or more than one date, enter one of the following:

  • {{Estimated Date|Death}}
  • {{Estimated Date|Marriage}}
  • {{Estimated Date|Birth and Death}}
  • {{Estimated Date|Birth and Marriage}}
  • {{Estimated Date|Death and Marriage}}
  • {{Estimated Date|Birth Death and Marriage}}

Always explain how you estimated the date in a Research Notes section.

Note that this template replaced the old Template:DateGuess and Template:DateGuess2.
