What is a stub?

A stub is an article with minimal content that needs to be expanded.

How is a stub identified?

  • If possible, try to find the most appropriate stub template for the article. A full list can be found at FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Stub sorting/Stub types.
  • Two or more different stub templates may be used, if necessary.
  • Place a stub template at the very end of the article, after any navigation templates, and the category tags. As usual, templates are added by including their name inside double curly brackets, e.g. {{Stub}}.
