How do I set up a category for all descendants of the Schafferius Clan in Australia

As far as we can tell all Schafferius relatives in Australia are the result of one family of immigrants from Prussia/Poland in the late 1800's.

There was a self-published book with an extensive family tree.

I have been adding these to wikitree, but it would be good to add a category for this.

Set up a name study similar to Fuller Name Study

If you are looking for the descendants of the immigrants then you can find them by clicking on the descendant button on their profiles. If you are wanting to follow the Schafferius surname then you could set up a One Name Study.

not really. I guess I could just use the descendents of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Schafferius-7, but I want to set up a category to contain a list of all the descendents, and wives etc, and also to put the scanned copies of the book.
I have added the tag Categorization to your question to bring it to the attention of some of the experts on setting up categories.
There are no search capabilities with scanned copies of the book. If it's a small book, uploading a scannable pdf file would be more useful.

You could also start with a Personal Category. Info is at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Personal_Categories
