Martha, try {{Acadian}}
thanks, will try-

Well said Herbert, Martha if you have typed it in then save and go to profile public or private view and you should see it just above your Biography
when I enter [[Acadian ]]  in my profile just above Biography   as instructions said -- it shows up red & if I click on it - I get mesage that only supervisor ?? can open it --then someone said I cannot add it in my profile - it has to be someone older - so I went to my grandfather`s profile but still did not work - so gues I will have to give up-- do not know what else I can do

Martha, I just edited your grandfather FJ Richard's profile to add {{Acadian}} and I think it worked.  Please take a look.  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Richard-2167

You have to use the curly brackets, not the square ones.  Use the shift key to get them.

Thank you so much ---so  I was using the wrong brackets  my eyesight is not that good , I had tried on my grandfather Beaugh  but so happy you added it to my grandfather Richard - I will now go and follow your instructions for others --sorry I kept asking same question but was upset that I could not get it to work for me --I appreciate your help so much & that you told me how to get to the right one

You are most welcome!
