This category is intended for placement in biographical entries about deceased individuals, primarily from antiquity (although, in some cases, reaching into the 19th century) whose place of birth is lost to history and never likely to be known. Except for specific rare circumstances (such as birth in a remote region where no records were/are kept) which should be elucidated within the pertinent biographical entry, this category is not meant to include individuals in Category:Living people, Category:Possibly living people and historically recent individuals who are no longer alive, but whose place of birth is presumed to have been recorded and could be researched. All such individuals should be included in Category:Place of birth missing.
