Add the Deletion Request flag to a page or a section of a page that needs to be deleted for reasons other than inappropriate content issues. See the FamilySearch Wiki Policies page (items 28-31) and the Guiding Principles page for details about the Deletion policies and content guidelines.


  • Wiki users cannot delete pages, but they can add the request to delete by adding a delete template to a page or a section of a page.
  • Add a delete request template to a page by typing {{Delete}} 
  • When the {{Delete}} template is added to a page, the user should also add a note to explain why the page or section should be deleted.
  • Sections of a page/article could have the {{Delete}} template, or the template could be added for the whole page. Only the section(s) tagged with the {{Delete}} template should be deleted.


  • Monitor the deletion requests by selecting the option to Watch this category page.
  • Administrators of the Wiki monitor this category page for incoming delete requests.
  • Only Administrators can delete entire pages or individual sections on a page.
