Parameters

Do not use all these parameters for any one person. The list is long to cover a wide range of people. Only use those parameters that convey essential or notable information about the subject. The parameters highlighted in yellow provide the most functionality for the website and are the most important (but not critical). Any parameters left blank or omitted will not be displayed. If a data field has more than one parameter name which can be used, the preferred name is listed first in bold print.

Parameter Explanation
first_names First name(s) of person.
last_name Common last name of person (provide maiden_name or married_name (below) if different from last_name).
maiden_name Birth name or maiden/nee name of person. For genealogy purposes on this website, it is normally preferred that the maiden name is used for the last_name above and so this parameter would be left blank.
married_name Married name if different from last_name. It is normally preferred for genealogy purposes on this website that the maiden name is used for last_name and so this field provides opportunity to capture married name.
gender Gender - either male or female.
tng_person_id Is a genealogy code used to uniquely identify an individual such as "I159" for Edelsten, Frederick Alexander - I159. This code can only be allocated by an administrator.
tng_family_id Is a genealogy code used to uniquely identify a family such as "F2001" for Bruce Family - F2001. This code can only be allocated by an administrator.
hon_prefix To appear on the line above the person's name
hon_suffix To appear on the line below the person's name
image Image name: abc.jpg, xpz.png, 123.gif, etc. If an image is desired but not available, one may use Image:Replace this image male.png, Image:Replace this image female.png or other placeholder images, or just leave blank for no image to display.
image_size Size to display image: 200px (set width), x300px (set height), or 200x300px (max width & max height). This defaults to frameless (default is 220px, but logged in users can change this by clicking on "my preferences" and adjusting thumbnail size) if empty or omitted. This parameter should not normally need to be set.
alt Alt text for image, for visually impaired readers. See WP:ALT.
caption Caption for image, if needed. Try to include date of photo and the photographer.
birth_date Date of birth: {{birth date and age|1930|1|15}} (if living) or {{birth date|1930|1|15}} (if dead). See Template:Birth date for details.
birth_place Place of birth: city, administrative region, sovereign state.
born_at_sea Any text entered here will be visible in the passenger's Infobox. Typical examples, yes or City of Adelaide (1873).
died_at_sea Any text entered here will be visible in the passenger's Infobox. Typical examples, yes or Fell overboard 17 June 1873.
death_date Date of death: {{death date and age|1995|10|9|1930|1|15}} (if birth date is known) or {{death date|1995|10|9}} (if birth date unknown). See Template:Death date for details.
death_cause Cause of death.
resting_place Mainly intended for recording passengers who have died at sea, but could alternatively be used to record place of burial, ash-scattering, etc.
rp_coords Mainly intended for recording coordinates of burials at sea, but could also be used coordinates of place of burial, ash-scattering etc. Use {{coord}} template.
residence Location(s) where the person notably resides/resided, if different from birth place.
nationality Nationality.
other_names Other notable names for the person, if different.
known_for A brief description of why the person is notable.
occupation Occupation.
title Multiple uses:
term Years the person held the title listed above.
predecessor Person who previously held the title listed above.
successor Person who subsequently held the title listed above.
religion If known, then religion is used by template to inject a Category:Religion category into page.
spouse Name of spouse(s), followed by years of marriage. Use the format Name (1950–present) for current spouse and Name (1970–1999) for former spouse(s). Separate entries with a line break (<br />). For deceased persons still married at time of death, close the date range with death year.
partner For unmarried life partners (of any gender or sexual preference), not business partners. Use same format as spouse.
children Number of children (i.e. 3), or list of names if notable, in which case, separate entries with a line break (<br />).
father Name of father.
mother Name of mother.
relatives Names of siblings or other relatives, if notable. Include the relationship in parentheses after the name (sister, uncle, etc). Separate entries with a line break (<br />).
website Unlikely to be useful, but if there is a significant website relating to the person can be recorded here. Unofficial websites should be placed under ==External links== in the body of the article. Use {{Url}} as {{Url|www.example.com}}.
footnotes Notes about any of the infobox data.
travel_class First, Second, Steerage or leaving blank are only options. Leaving blank or omitted will not display this parameter.
port_embarked Name of the Port where the passenger embarked the City of Adelaide if different from voyage origin. For example, might be Plymouth for a voyage from London to Adelaide. Only use for passengers who have undertaken only one voyage on the City of Adelaide. Leaving blank or omitted will not display this parameter.
port_disembarked Name of the Port where the passenger disembarked the City of Adelaide if different from voyage destination. For example, might be Cape Town for a voyage from Adelaide to London. Only use for passengers who have undertaken only one voyage on the City of Adelaide. Leaving blank or omitted will not display this parameter.
rich_and_famous If the passenger might reasonably be considered to be either rich or famous, then set this parameter to yes.

stowaway If the passenger was a stowaway, then set this parameter to yes.
voyage_to_adelaide_in_1864 If the passenger was on the Voyage to Adelaide in 1864, then set this parameter to yes.
. . . . . .
