Births and deaths in specific years

Here (though somewhat dated by July 2008) is a suggested form of text for a "Born in ...." or a "Died in ...." category, containing links to suitable other categories and an instruction to help anyone having difficulty getting an individual's page to list there. Copy from the edit box and remove the "nowiki" tags (except from the EXAMPLE paragraph) when editing:

This category should include the page for every person whose death year is shown as [[1945]].

Names list in alphabetical order of page name except where the magic word DEFAULTSORT is used or where the page link to the category ends with a "pipe" and the preferred locator such as a surname, eg [[category:(EXAMPLE)|Botany, Bad Sir Brian]].
