Clicking this icon will copy the WikiTree ID to your clipboard. You can then paste it elsewhere.
How IDs are Assigned
The ID for a Person Profile combines the person's Last Name at Birth with a number. The numbers are assigned in the order that people with that last name are added to WikiTree. For example, the first Franklin added to WikiTree was assigned the ID Franklin-1.
The ID for a Free-Space Profile — for the significant places, pets, events, homes, and other things in your history — is simply the prefix "Space:" and the title you've given the page. For example: Space:Fitchburg High School.
