When you add a biography to BiographicalWiki.com you must create a new page for that biography. The new pages name will be the name of the person in the biography.

In order to keep the pages names consistent please remember these recommendations:

  • Last name is first followed by a comma then the given name(s)
Example: Truman, Martha Ann
  • The name is followed by a the birth and death years in parentheses
Example: Truman, Martha Ann (1850-1892)
  • Women are always listed by their maiden name


Some notes:

  • Including the birth and death years will help people find the right person by looking only at page names
  • If you don't know the birth or death year for biography, perhaps you might want to do a little more research before publishing the biography
