Research Note Box for Profiles Without Sources

{{Unsourced}} is a Research Note Box. It should be used on any profile with no source citations, or no source citations that clearly identify the source. See Help:Sources FAQ for more information on exactly when it should be used.

Placement

Put the tag {{Unsourced}} above the == Biography == headline and below any categories or Project Boxes without any extra lines or hard returns.

For example:

[[Category: Battle of Trenton]]
{{1776}}
{{Unsourced|New Jersey}}
== Biography ==

You can enter {{Unsourced}} without a modifier, but it's best to enter a country, state, province or other place name.

The tag places the profile in Category:Unsourced Profiles and narrower categories if a modifier is used. Narrower categories give the profile a much better chance of being found by a volunteer "Sourcerer" who can help.

If you've done research but couldn't find sources please explain where you have looked in a Research Notes section. This will save other volunteers time.

If you have any questions, come ask in G2G. Use the tags templates and Sourcerers.

Removal

Simply delete {{Unsourced}} to remove the box.

It should be removed when any sources are added, even if other facts still need citations.
