Should I link image scans to multiple profiles?

I have two old family bibles, each of which has pages for recording births, deaths and marriages of family members. I have scans of those pages showing names and dates for multiple family members.

I'm wondering whether it is appropriate to link a single image to profile pages for all the individuals listed, and if not, guidance about which family member's profile should host the image.

Assuming multiple links are appropriate, I'm wondering whether it would be a good idea to create pages for each of the individuals named, even including ones for whom I have little or any additional info beyond the names and dates.-16167

One thing I like to keep in mind on WikiTree is that you don't have to do it all. I so go for it - add what info you have for a person, even if it's only very little. Someone else will ideally come along and fill in more. It might be just the info they were missing or the boost they need to get started. Good luck!

Thanks for your advice; that seems reasonable.

I've found the answer to my main question, about linking an image to multiple pages: on the image upload dialog, it says "After upload you can connect the image with additional profiles".

I'll proceed that way, adding new entries and linking to them as I find the time.
