There is a descendant sticker :

{{Descendant|image=add image ID here|id=[[your ancestor ID#|your ancestor's name]]}}

Just copy the code and fill in what I have in red.

Or if you want two ancestors (generic image) :

{{Descendant|id=[[your ancestor ID#|your ancestor's name]], and [[your ancestor ID#|your ancestor's name]]}}
 

My new WikiTree thing to learn today. I did not know this was possible. Cool!

Is there some way to make it a little bigger? just a little? and it'd be really great if somehow we let people know these ancestors were Salzburgers? I KNOW there's more descendants of Salzburgers than MY ancestor... ;)

Sticker sizes are hard coded.

If you wanted something larger, you'd have to use an image, as I did with a reproduction of a gravestone on this profile : https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Walter-5474

ooooo what's the code for that? I really like that!!! lol

Something such as this :

You would put the code directly beneath the == Biography == header (or anywhere else in the biography text area above the == Sources == header).

[[Image:ADWP-19.jpg|center|'''Descendant of one of the 300 Salzbuger emigrants of 1734.''']]

Except -- I made a typo on the year, so don't use that image .  blush

Ok .. fixed.  Seems I had it correct the first time.  Re-fixing. blush

Done .. again.*sigh*

On not thinking about this, I had an idea - you could use the image to draw attention, and the descendant sticker to name which ancestor was the emigrant.

Wow, that's pretty incredible! I love to watch the creative process in action.  I was wondering if I could use the image as a profile picture and the sticker would then as you said tell which person is the immigrant...

could you tell me something about the coding? [[Image:ADWP-19.jpg|center|'''. Descendant of one of the 300 Salzbuger emigrants of 1734.''']] So you created the image and saved and labeled it. center is the position. 

Thank you so much!

Feel free to reuse the image anywhere - it's an adaptation of an existing public domain image, not one I created from scratch.

I'd hesitate to use it for a profile image, but only due to the shape and size.  If you'd like, I could re-adapt it to better fit the profile  image size.  (Please DON'T use it as a background image -- it will not tile well, and definitely won't tile seamlessly.)

The code - it's standard image code, with the option of alt text for those who don't see the image itself, just that one is there.  (Mouseover will show the "Descendant of one of the 300 Salzbuger emigrants of 1734." text. (I wasn't thinking, and the bolding ''' are not needed))  Yes, center is to position it.  If you leave that off it will auto left position.  If you want it on the right, you'd need to use the {{ image code.

I have cropped and manipulated the original image to make it more suitable for a profile primary image:

If you would like to use it, just let me know. 

You know, I like that image. I sure prefer it to the blank box that's so prevalent on these wiki "wait for the profile picture" boxes...

I just feel bad you are doing so much. There's no place for a Thank you link on this exchange. Maybe I can find on on your profile. You are just so THE BEST!!!!

I don't like blank profile images (or the generic pink/blue silhouettes), so add a letter, or some other image I think suits what I have learnt about the person.  Moreso if it's a baby/small child/person who died young.  You're welcome to use any of the images I have made / adapted for use on Wikitree.  smiley
