Date of Birth/Date of Death  

We do not remove valid dates of birth/dates of death, so please do not submit deletions.

The place of birth should be in the same form as a location in the locations list, with the city (if applicable) and country, plus whatever other subdivisions are appropriate for the country (i.e., state - examples: Los Angeles, California, USA; London, England, UK, etc.)

The place of birth/death should reflect the political divisions at the time. In cases where divisions or place names have changed over time, it is acceptable to show the current place names within [square brackets]. If the name of the birth place has changed, list the new name as [now ...] i.e. here.
If the territory of the birth place has changed, list the name of the current territory as [now in...] i.e. here. A list of the locations currently being used can be displayed by clicking on the gray list icon ( ) next to the place field.

We do not consider Wikipedia (or other collaboratively edited wiki-style sites) to be an acceptable source for birth dates.

The wiki links to online citations and external links which provide supporting evidence of the subject's birth date, and these are often appropriate URLs to include in your submission. That means citing the linked article, not the wiki article URL.

We are looking for links to public records, printed publications, or official documents.


We do allow social media links to be an acceptable source for birthdates (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.
)

If submitting a date of birth for a minor under 18 years of age, you must include a URL confirming the year of birth.

We will no longer accept DOBs for minors without supporting evidence.

We do hold some BC/BCE birth and death dates, but at the moment it's not possible to add this type of data through our submissions system.

If you have data like this that you wish to add, please contact us using the form below and we'll be glad to help.

Hi there, the submission you provided hasn't had time to be processed yet. Additionally, the evidence you are providing is not sufficient; please review our help site for the types of evidence looked for. 

Thank you!

it has this status for several days, it would be helpful if you'd actually check the status of the submission before answering


• We are looking for links to public records, printed publications, or official documents.

i provided 2 official public records, one from the place where she got her education, one from organization preserving hayastan culture and i did provide a link to her social media

that is EXACTLY the evidence you are looking for

but to know that one have to actually check the submission status first, i understand that is unbearable effort

Public records of a DOB are a copy of live birth recorded at a clerk and recorders office of a Governmental Agency. That's an Official Public Record. Governmental. Not some college records. Not one from organization preserving Hayastan culture. That is not a Governmental Agency either. Public = A Government Agency.
