I have photos of my Grandmother's family bible that has genealogical info it it and wanted to put the photos here but couldn't figure it out. I don't want to set up a website as that is too much work. I would appreciate any ideas you would have. I do have flikr but not sure how to combine them. This old mind isn't working the way it should. Thanks for any help you can give.

I just thought to mention this; you can also create a seperate page just for the Bible and put links to it in the biography sections on the individual profile pages.  I've done this with a photo from the 1880's or 90's that belonged to my grandmother.  No one knew who the two girls pictured were.

In the bio section for my grandmother and several other members of her family, I have a note that reads:

Have you seen the Mystery Girls?

You do this by clicking on New Profile at the top of any profile page, then just add an appropriate title and other info for the Bible, and click on the "Create New Profile" button.  You can then upload the Bible pictures to their own page.

The internal link to the page for my mystery girls looks like this when editing the bio:

: Have you seen the [[Space:Edgerton/Oden_Mystery_Girls | Mystery Girls]]?

The text "Mystery Girls" before the "]]" can be any text at all.  For example, yours might read:

: Jane's birth is recorded in my grandmother's family Bible, shown on [[Space:Grandma's Family Bible Page | image #3]].

And the text in the saved bio section would read:

Jane's birth is recorded in my grandmother's family Bible, shown on image #3.

With the words "image #3" being a live link to the Bible page.

Hi Beth,

You don't need to have the photos anywhere else online, like Flickr, because you can upload them right to WikiTree. Just look at a profile, and on the right hand side you should see a link that says [upload image]. Click that, and you can upload a file right to the site.

After you've uploaded the photo, you can edit the photo information to link it to other profiles, add dates and locations, etc.

Let me know if you need more help with this!

If you log in and go to the profile page where you want to add the picture, you'll see a link on the right near the top that says "upload image."  The rest should be self-explanatory.  You can also link the image to multiple profiles, like all the names shown in the bible, using the checkboxes on the list you'll see after it's been uploaded.
