Help:Category Quick Picks[edit | edit source]

Page size = 43,473

To assist the contributor after they have written their article the following examples are provided to help with the proper categorization of that page. Go to the appropriate section (Templates or Images and Files) for a list of suggested categories that your page may fit into. For content articles a built in mechanism is being developed wherein the contributor can use selections from the sidebar topics list on major location pages.

  • A benefit to properly categorizing the pages within this Wiki is that the search engine results are improved. Note that improper categorization will also make your article harder to find.
  • Under no circumstances should a category be created with the same name as the article itself.
  • If a new category is created via the page link the corresponding category must also be created (otherwise a red link will occur).
  • Patrolling may also ultimately change or delete inappropriate category links so the proper selection benefits everyone.
  • The use of templates on a page may inadvertently add a category to a page but if this occurs it can be eliminated by modifying the template call. For example: if a template is called using {{template}} it can be changed to {{template|category=}} to eliminate any extraneous category additions.
  • For further assistance on creating and linking to categories, see
FamilySearch Wiki:FAQ/Categories
Help:Categorization
Help:Advanced Categorization
FamilySearch Wiki:Category namespace
FamilySearch Wiki:Categorization
Category:Deletion Requests



The following sections will assist in identifying the correct category. If you are still unsure which category to choose it is best to seek help rather than selecting a bad category or creating a category that is not useful. Use the talk page for the article in question by installing the following template to request assistance (this helpme template will only work on the "Talk" pages).
Copy, paste, and save the maroon coding below to the talk page.

{{helpme|<center>'''I need help with category selection'''</center>}}


Question.png I am looking for help!
Note to helpers: Once you have offered help, please replace this template with {{Helpme-helped}}.
I need help with category selection










Note: The sidebar additions (the category markers) are still being evaluated and my change or may not be present at all. Also, the tables below are unfinished examples only and will definitely be revised but the displayed category names will be linked to the actual category for convenient access.


Articles category by sidebar topic[edit | edit source]

Return to top of page


If you are developing an article for a country, check the country sidebar to see if your topic falls under one of the sidebar topics (a category link is available to assist with this selection; (c) = one of the possible categories). If your article pertains to a specific State or Province then the topics in the sidebar on the appropriate page can be used to select the right category.

The two sidebars below are for example purposes only and may not be up-to-date with the actual page sidebars. You can hoover over the (c) to look at the tool tip or you can click on the (c) which will take you to that category. Once in the category page you can check to see if your article fits with the pages already there or you can explore the sub-categories to see if a different one is more appropriate. Remember you should install your page on the lowest sub-category that is possible which will make your article easier to find by others.

If multiple categories are displayed this only means that that particular topic is normally found under different subject matter and you should consider if one or all of them should be listed on your page.

Some typical category hierarchies are also shown below these sidebar displays.
