A cousin recently found a treasure trove of photos and letters from our family going back to the mid-1800's. I have several questions regarding these.  Several include land purchases and birth certificates, Bible inscriptions, etc.  I would like to use these for sources in the bibliographies.  Is there a limit of the number of images I can put on the bibliography?   Thank you for all the help.

It is recommended that each profile can have about ten images. You can create a free-space page, upload photos and other images there and link them to the appropriate person's profile.

Thank you for responding.  Should I put the link to the free-space page in the footnotes, sources, or under "Research".  I have various certificates that are not available on line.  Some are in German, Hungarian, and Polish as well.

I have not done this yet but here is a link to photos as sources on profiles and as I understand, for a source photo, place it in sources and link to the Free-Space page where it is located. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Image_Types

You can take the ten most important images for each profile and place those directly on the profile page for each person. Then, place other photos and images of documents on the free-space page.

If a document or photo refers to more than one person, just link to each person rather than uploading multiple times.

I just re-read your question - I would not put the link under Research. I would explain each document in the biography (and translate if possible) and then do the link to the free-space page as a source citation which will then appear under Sources.

Awesome.  Thank you so much for the help and great ideas.
