This template is used on a Person page to show that evidence refutes a particular set of parents and hence those parents are incorrect.


Use "Add event/fact" to create a fact of type "Other", then place text of the following form in the "Description" field of the new fact:

{{RefutedParents | FamilyPageName }}

where FamilyPageName is the simple page name (without the "Family:"), like "George Washington and Martha Dandridge (1)".

When using this template, it is particularly important to support the fact entry with sources and notes. An unsupported assertion is not compelling.

You should also add a corresponding "RefutedChild" template entry to the referenced Family page. That template usage should give the Person page name of the page you use this template on.


  • {{RefutedParents| George Washington and Martha Dandridge (1)}}
