Help with placing sucession box

+6 votes
55 views
I have spent the past week working on the Selwyn family.  Alfred Selwyn was a noted geologist and is buried in a local cemetery where I take photos for the cemetery project.

I have noted on Wikipedia that there is a succession box related to his professional accomplishments, but I can never figure out what the coding is to create such a box.

Can some please help and then tell me what to do in the future/ or where the "cheat sheet" is in the FAQ?

Thanks

You can see examples of succession boxes in my post here -- https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1149438/lj-russell-is-a-wonderful-wikitreer

LJ has what he calls a "cheat sheet", but I got confused trying to substitute non-American information and LJ helped me out wonderfully.  So much so, I was able to do the next couple of succession boxes using the info he had done for me the previous time.

This page is for a simple succession box:

Template:Succession box (wikitree.com)

Template:Succession box2 (wikitree.com)

A more complex one would be like the one on this profile:
