Template:Descendant

Categories: Stickers


This user box is for use on profiles to show their link to ancestors.

It is an excellent option for those members who do not want to actively participate in the project but want to indicate their connection to ancestors from a certain era (i.e. Pocahontas, George Washington, King Henry VIII).

Multiple copies of the template can be used on the same profile, changing the ancestor referenced in each one.

Usage:

You can use this template several ways. To use an image of your ancestor or associated with them, you need the image id. You'll also need your ancestor's profile ID and preferred name. A category can be called using the "category" parameter.

{{Descendant}} will produce:
Descendant
Descendant of honored ancestors.


Adding the ancestor you are descended from will put a link to their profile into the template:

{{Descendant|id=[[Appleton-13|Samuel Appleton]]}} will produce:
Descendant
Descendant of Samuel Appleton.

Multiple ancestors can be listed like this:

{{Descendant|id=[[Appleton-13|Samuel Appleton]], [[Houston-1|Sam Houston]], and [[Franklin-1|Benjamin Franklin]]}}
Descendant

Adding the image and ancestor will give you this:

{{Descendant|image=Abby_s_Tools-3.jpg|id=[[Appleton-13|Samuel Appleton]]}}
Descendant
Descendant of Samuel Appleton.

If you want to add additional data, like a reason for their importance, you can add the more information in the "id" parameter like this:

{{Descendant|image=Abby_s_Tools-3.jpg|id=[[Appleton-13|Samuel Appleton]] . Samuel was a sawmill owner in colonial Massachusetts.}}
Descendant
Descendant of Samuel Appleton. Samuel was a sawmill owner in colonial Massachusetts..
