STOP PRESS - New Zealand Template
Now available thanks to the amazing art work of Rob Ton !!
|New Zealand Project|
This template is for use on profiles that fall under the aims of the New Zealand project. This includes anyone who was born in, or immigrated to New Zealand; in other words anyone who lived/lives in New Zealand.
To use this template on a profile use the following code, providing the specified parameters (case-sensitive):
In order to categorize profiles accurately, providing the parameters 'region' and 'place' is strongly encouraged, although the template can be applied without them.
- If the 'region' parameter is not provided the profile will be placed in Category:Pending_New_Zealand_Categories whether or not a 'place' is specified.
Parameter 'place' should be a village, town, city, or urban center. Usually the location provided should be for the place of birth, or the place an immigrant first settled on arrival in New Zealand. If however the individual is strongly associated with a different community from where they were born or initially settled the profile managers may agree to use that location instead.
The template call:
Results in the profile being added to "Category:Oamaru, Otago" and the template being displayed as:
||... ... ... came from Oamaru, Otago, New Zealand.|

As with all categories on Wikitree if the name appears in red text that category page does not yet exist. In such cases please double-check the spelling is correct (again this is case sensitive) and then create the category page, including making it a sub-category of the appropriate region.
