South African Roots Project Templates and Categories

Here you will find all Templates and categories you can use for project profiles (or your own)


South African Roots Project Template

This template] is for only the (sourced and improved !) people and profiles with South African Roots that are part of the South African Roots Project and needs Project Profile Protection

For younger profiles, your own and your direct, close family members of course it's fine to add the sticker template, even if there is not a Birth record or other source added yet.
South African Flag
... ... ... is genealogies verbind aan Suid Afrika /is genealogically connected to South Africa
This is how you can add the sticker
just copy and paste, immediately under the heading Biography- on the profiles you manage {{South African Roots Sticker}} The sticker now forms part of Biography and are always align to the right

But...for your ancestors, so all older profiles,
it should only be added if they are sourced and improved and not already have a template or are perhaps falling under a different project.
If there are more projects the profile could fall under, always first ask in G2G, the template from the most proper project is going to be added.


SA Roots sometimes needs to manage a profile

To add this template to an improved and sourced profile that fall under the Profile protection criteria, listed below. contact one of the South African leaders

1.1 One: They must fit within a project
1.2 Two: They must be 200 or notable
1.3 Three: They must have the lowest-numbered ID
1.4 Four: They must be controversial or duplicated.
All profiles with this template added can be found here : South African Roots
Project Template example
For all profiles if they are not sourced and improved, please first start using our South African Roots (SAR) To Do Template System and also see our Categories

What are Templates and Categories?

Categories just creates lists of profiles which are grouped together for a purpose.
Templates are just a nifty way of displaying the contents of one web page on another page. We make them small so that they will display for instance only a Project box and we add the category to the template page which then automatically displays the category on the profile page as well.

South African Roots Needs (Maintenance) Template System

The South African Roots Project is using a Needs (Maintenance) system, we are using categories mostly.

By changing just the last word(s) in the category, if the profile 'needs' something else, it can be moved to the next step in the process or a different needs category. And if a profile has more then one needs, and is project managed or PPP't you can add three needs with one template, it should (for example) look like this:
[[South African Roots|needs=Birth Record|needs1=PPP|needs2=Death Notice]] of course all kinds of variations are possible, depending on the needs.

Below you will find all needs categories with a little explaining:

1. When a profile has no sources, but when it is clear it is a South African Roots profile
►You now can add (or copy and paste this one) to the top of the Bio:
[[Category:South African Roots Project Needs Birth Record]] with this the profile will be added to the project and you can find them here: South African Roots Project Needs Birth Record

Wanneer 'n profiel geen bronne het nie, maar dit is duidelik dat dit 'n Suid Afrikaanse Roots profiel is en omdat ons slegs 'n profiel by die projek voeg wat meer voltooid is, voeg ons eerste die "South African Roots Category"
[[Category:South African Roots Project Needs Birth Record]] by die profiel. Sodoende word die profiel regstreeks by die projek gevoeg. Sien South African Roots Project Needs Birth Record


2. When you have found a record for Birth/Baptism and the LNAB has to be corrected all you have to do is change the words Birth Record in the template into LNAB
►Or you can add ( copy and paste this category) to the top of the Bio: [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs LNAB]] It adds them all here South African Roots Project Needs LNAB

Wanneer jy 'n rekord vir die doop/geboorte gekry het en die LNAB moet gewysig en regestel word, al wat jy hoef te doen is om die woorde Birth Record in die sjabloom te vervang met LNAB. Dus maak seker dat die sjabloom dan so lyk [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs LNAB]], en die profiel sal na hierdie Kategorie skuif South African Roots Project Needs LNAB'

3. When the LNAB is correct(ed) all you now have to do is change the 'word' LNAB in this template into PPP.
►You can add (or copy and paste this one) to the top of the Bio: : [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs PPP]] it adds them all here : South African Roots Project Needs PPP All profiles in this category will be PPP't by the projectleaders, if something else needs to be done , so when the PPP needs to be removed to correct a LNAB for example, just add a clear post to the profile where this is explained . So with this template you don't have to email links anymore, just adding the template is all you have to do and the profiles will get PPP't.

Wanneer die LNAB reggestel is, al wat jy moet doen is om die woordjie LNAB in die sjabloom te vervang me PPP sodat dit so lyk [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs PPP]] en jy sal die profiel dan hier sien South African Roots Project Needs PPP. Alle profiele in hierdie kategorie sal deur die projek leiers die PPP status gegee word. Soms is dit nodig dat die PPP status verwyder moet word om iets te doen aan die profiel, voeg dan net 'n duidelike boodskap ook by die profiel. Dit is dus nie meer nodig om skakels te stuur met e-pos boodskappe nie. Hierdie sjabloom sisteem skep sy eie lyste en jy hoef net die regte sjabloom elke keer by die profiel te voeg.

4. For Profiles falling under the South African Roots Project that still need a Death Notice (record).
►You can add (or copy and paste this one) to the top of the Bio: [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs Death Notice]] It adds them all here: South African Roots Project Needs Death Notice

5. For Profiles that still need a transcription.
►You can add (or copy and paste this one) to the top of the bio: [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs Transcription]] It adds them all here: South African Roots Project Needs Transcription

South African Roots Needs (Maintenance) + other Categories

The South African Roots Project has three important categories where you can find them all:
1. The basic template, used for all South African Roots Project Profiles (1807-1818). You can add the template:
just copy and paste {{South African Roots Sticker}} to just beyond the first heading.
To find them later also add
(just copy and paste) [[Category:South African Projects]] to the top of the Bio.
2. For all profiles of People who were born (parents Unknown) and or migrated to South Africa and had descendants, only for profiles falling under the South African Roots Project, so people born after 1806 !
►You can add (or copy and paste this one) to the top of the Bio:
[[Category:Suid Afrika Stamouer-Progenitor]] It adds them all here: Suid Afrika Stamouer-Progenitor
3. For South African Roots profiles that are Validated with a primary source like a Baptism/Birth record.
►You can add (or copy and paste this one) to the top of the Bio:
[[Category:South African Roots Validated]] it adds them all here: South African Roots Validated
Note: The basic template is also used as our Needs (Maintenance system) to add all profiles to the proper needs categories,
With the Templates three needs can be added, If a profile still would need one extra, to prevent two (duplicate) project templates added to one profile.
►You can just add the category (copy and paste the proper one of these):

1.[[Category:South African Roots Project Needs Birth Record]]
2.[[Category:South African Roots Project Needs LNAB]]
3. [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs PPP]]
4. [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs Death Notice]]
5. [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs Transcription]]
6 [[Category:South African Roots Project Needs Bio Integration]]
If you like you can also add one of the emigrant-Immigrant categories:
1. For people who Immigrated from other countries to South Africa, see South African Immigration.
However if they had South African descendants please add
[[Category:Suid Afrika Stamouer-Progenitor]] .


4. For people who Emigrated from South Africa to other Countries.
►You can add this category (or copy and paste this one) to the top of the Bio
[[Category:South African Emigrants]] it adds them all here: South Africa, Emigrants



Miscellaneous Templates

{{Unsourced|South Africa}}Please add this template. List can be found here
Old definition Where the profile is without reference to at least a reasonably acceptable secondary source. This is now enough to create a profile, but the profile is still unsourced according to the next definition.
New definition:According to the Source-a-Thon definition of Unsourced. A profile is Unsourced when it does not have a primary source as reference. Valid sources include census records, BMD records/index references, military documents, land documents, wills, etc. A source cannot be another family tree, such as Geni or an Ancestry Member Tree.
Example A profile sourced with only a user submitted tree from a another website has a source. It is just not a credible source and since we cannot do genealogy without credible sources, the profile is considered unsourced.
{{Estimated Date}}
{{Uncertain Existence}}
{{Uncertain Family}}
{{Uncertain Spouse}}
{{Citation Needed}}
