Hi Carole!

The source template - {{DAR-grs|Axxx|Name|date}} - adds a citation for the American Patriot whose number is used (the "Axxx" part). See for details.

The text that the template returns was approved for our use by the DAR (the quote that you have in the G2G post, although I just discovered that the text of the post has been deleted).

The DAR-grs template does not add a category, but you can add [[Category: NSDAR Patriot Ancestors]] manually.

The category that you included in your post - - is for members of the DAR.

Cheers, Liz

If you are going to add a Category, add the related information in the biography, as well as the DAR info in a source citation, so a link will be created.

There is nothing in the DAR template that states the Category is being generated automatically, so I am sure there are plenty of DAR template in the wikitree profiles without a category.  Personally, I know I have added it when I have seen information in a profile without the template, but I have never added the category.

Carole, you have some work to do to add a lot of categories.  Check out this wikitree + Extract for DAR-grs template text

Select the Blue Get Profiles button.  It is showing 10,551 profiles
