This template is used on a Person or Family page to show that evidence suggests a particular wife for that person or wife-mother for that family.


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:

{{SpeculativeWife | PersonPageName }}

where PersonPageName is the simple page name (without the "Person:"), like "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 "SpeculativeHusband" or "SpeculativeFamily" template entry to the referenced speculative wife's page. That template usage should give the Person or Family page name of the page you use this template on.


  • {{SpeculativeWife| Martha Dandridge (1)}}
