Welcome to the Germany Project Templates Page

The Germany project has many templates which can be used to add special boxes, also known as stickers, to display on profiles.

Templates highlight information of interest specific to the person and should be used sparingly, with no more than 3 per profile (the exception is for active WikiTree member profiles, where you can load them on). :-)

Please remember: stickers are used for profile "decoration" only. The information you add to a sticker should be reflected in the profile's data fields and in its biography. Stickers are used at the discretion of the profile manager and can be removed at any time. If you want to add a sticker to a profile, please be courteous and ask the PM before adding a sticker to a profile you do not manage.

Location Stickers

Use the Germany Sticker to produce "lived in" or "born in" location stickers. A location MUST be added as a parameter. If you add a modern regional location (rather than just Germany or Deutschland), you can also add a regional flag. Berlin is used as an example in the images below.

If you're adding a regional location to the sticker, it should be used on more modern profiles as they do not include the language "the region now known as XYZ, Germany" ("hat deutsche Wurzeln im Bereich des heutigen XYZ, Deutschland"), as the German Roots Sticker does. To use this more complex language for a location sticker, use the Nonmigrating Ancestor sticker, below.

NOTE: The Germany Sticker and Nonmigrating Ancestor sticker do NOT add any categories.

See Template: Germany Sticker for more detailed information on using the Germany Sticker.

"Lived In" Sticker

The Germany Sticker's default text, with a location parameter, produces a "lived in" sticker - a location MUST be added as a parameter. To add this sticker to a profile, copy the following coding and insert it directly below the Biography headline:

... ... ... lived in Germany.
{{Germany Sticker
|location=Germany}} displays as:



... ... ... lived in Berlin, Germany.
{{Germany Sticker
|location=Berlin, Germany
|image=German_Flags-1.png}} displays as:



... ... ... lebte in Deutschland.
{{Germany Sticker
|location=Deutschland
|lang=de}} displays as:



... ... ... lebte in Berlin, Deutschland.
{{Germany Sticker
|location=Berlin, Deutschland
|lang=de
|image=German_Flags-1.png}} displays as:



See Template: Germany Sticker for more detailed information on using the Germany Sticker as a "lived in" sticker.

"Born In" Sticker

Adding "|born=yes" to the Germany Sticker, with a location parameter, produces a "born in" sticker - a location MUST be added as a parameter.
To add this sticker to a profile, copy the following coding and insert it directly below the Biography headline:

... ... ... was born in Germany.
{{Germany Sticker
|born=yes
|location=Germany}} displays as:



... ... ... was born in Berlin, Germany.
{{Germany Sticker
|born=yes
|location=Berlin, Germany
|image=German_Flags-1.png}} displays as:



... ... ... wurde in Deutschland geboren.
{{Germany Sticker
|born=yes
|location=Deutschland
|lang=de}} displays as:



... ... ... wurde in Berlin, Deutschland geboren.
{{Germany Sticker
|born=yes
|location=Berlin, Deutschland
|lang=de
|image=German_Flags-1.png}} displays as:



See Template: Germany Sticker for more detailed information on using the Germany Sticker as a "born in" sticker.


Migrating Ancestor

The Migrating Ancestor template is used for profiles of people who migrated from one place to another.

{{Migrating Ancestor |origin= Germany |destination= Australia |origin-flag= Flags.gif |destination-flag= Flags_of_Australian.png }}
Flag of Germany
... ... ... migrated from Germany to Australia.
Flag of Australia




See Template:Migrating Ancestor for more detailed information on the migrating ancestor sticker.


Nonmigrating Ancestor

The Nonmigrating Ancestor template can be used to create a more complex "born in", "lived in" or "Roots" sticker. These are highly customizable as you can add your own text and images.

Example 1:

{{Nonmigrating Ancestor |addinfo=XYZ was born in the region now known as Dithmarschen, Schleswig-Holstein. |flag=German_Flags-35.png |tooltip=Dithmarschen flag }}
Dithmarschen flag
XYZ was born in the region now known as Dithmarschen, Schleswig-Holstein.




Example 2:

{{Nonmigrating Ancestor |addinfo=XYZ lived in Dithmarschen, Schleswig-Holstein her entire life. |flag=German_Flags-35.png |tooltip=Dithmarschen flag }}
Dithmarschen flag
XYZ lived in Dithmarschen, Schleswig-Holstein her entire life.




Example 3:

{{Nonmigrating Ancestor |addinfo=XYZ has roots in Großherzogtum Mecklenburg-Strelitz. |flag=German_territorial_structure_in_the_course_of_history-70.png |tooltip=Flagge Mecklenburg }}
Flagge Mecklenburg
XYZ has roots in Großherzogtum Mecklenburg-Strelitz.




See Template:Nonmigrating Ancestor for more detailed information on using the nonmigrating ancestor sticker. See also German Flags for a list of flags with dates used.


Descendant Sticker

The Descendant sticker is a lot like the Nonmigrating Ancestor sticker and can be tailored with images, links to individual family members AND categories can be added as well. To use an image, you'll need its file name. A category can be called using the "category" parameter.

Example 1:

{{Descendant |id=a Prussian King |image=German_Flags-19.png |imagetext=Flag of Prussia }}
Flag of Prussia
Descendant of a Prussian King.




Example 2:

{{Descendant |image=German_Flags-35.png |id=[[Thiessen-484|HDA Thiessen]], who emigrated from Reinsbüttel, Duchy of Holstein after the First Schleswig War}}
Descendant
Descendant of HDA Thiessen, who emigrated from Reinsbüttel, Duchy of Holstein after the First Schleswig War.




This sticker can be used in several ways. See Template: Descendant for more detailed information on using the descendant sticker.


Black Sea Germans Sticker

This sticker can be placed on the profiles of people who were born in or lived in the Black Sea German Colonies. This is NOT a descendant sticker. NOTE: Categories are NOT attached to this sticker and should be added separately. Copy and paste the coding below on to the profile and it will display as shown in the example:

Black Sea Germans
... ... ... was a Black Sea German.
{{Black Sea Germans}}



See Template:Black Sea Germans for more detailed information on using the Black Sea Germans sticker.

... ... ... hat preußische Wurzeln.
{{German Roots Sticker|Prussia|lang=de}}} displays as:

It would be great to have a "Born in the Kingdom of Hanover" too thanks. In the meantime, for Schlüter-314, I will see what I can create with the "Nonmigrating Ancestor" (even though he is a migrating ancestor)
posted by Troy Phillips
Sorry but you'll have to use the nonmigrating ancestor sticker. There were hundreds of different kingdoms over hundreds of years - far too many to add different stickers.
posted by Traci Thiessen
From what I understood of central Europe's history, I have following observations:

As for the Prussian provinces: West Prussia (Westpreußen) existed from 1773-3.12.1829 and from 01.04.1878-1919. East Prussia (Ostpreußen) existed from 31.01.1773-3.12.1829 and from 01.04.1878-1945. From 3.12.1829-01.04.1878 both provinces were fused in a new province “Prussia”. This Province Prussia was one of the provinces of the Kingdom Prussia and – I suppose - should logically have as well a separate sticker. (... ... ...was born in the Province of Prussia, Prussia?). Or (... ... ...was born in the Province of Prussia, Kingdom Prussia?) Also the other mentioned Prussian provinces have a well defined time limit in which they existed; maybe these time zones should be mentioned.

General observation: Prussia (Preußen) is a rather confusing understanding. During the centuries it has been:

Prussia (Preußen), > ±1300 a territorium where the Prußen lived, a baltic tribe with their own local (non-German!) language.

Duchy of Prussia (Preußen), 1525 - 1701

Kingdom of Prussia (Preußen), 1701 – 1918

and has changed numerous times in it's geographical existance.

Thanks Jan! This info is important and should be incorporated into our Prussia Team page here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Prussia_Team.

However, the German Roots Regions and Prussia stickers above are meant solely for profile "decoration" and the wording on them needs to be more generic because date parameters and categories have NOT been attached to these stickers. If date parameters were attached to these stickers, it is likely that they would be improperly placed and database errors would abound.

Someday we hope to have proper categorization for German and Prussian regions over time, but it will be a massive undertaking as regional boundaries changed so frequently over many centuries. At that time, we might attach categories with date parameters to the stickers above. Stay tuned!

I see that there is a "Volga German" sticker. Is there one for Black Sea Germans? Or maybe a "German from Russia" sticker? If we wanted to put a migrating sticker on a "german from russia" person, how would we do that? They are German descent, but technically migrated from "Russia."
Is there a born in Germany sticker?
posted by Richard Sayle
Not yet. For now, there's just the German Roots sticker.
posted by Traci Thiessen
There is now!
... ... ... wurde in Deutschland geboren.

In English:

... ... ... was born in Germany.
