The following is one of the many models you can use to make articles on your ancestor. This particular model follows a format similar to the Infobox style of Wikipedia biographies.

Two other templates are involved in this layout. See Template:Person and Template:Childbox for more details on how to use them.

'''NAME''' <!--Include biography here. You can also repeat information like you entered in the infobox. 
The infobox is mainly there to get quick information about the person's vital statistics. 
If the biography becomes really long, it can be split into sections.-->

==Children==
<!-- This section is the childbox template. Fill in the information after each of the "=" signs to the best of your knowledge. 3 boxes are available by default, but this is not limited. -->
{{Childbox/start}}

Blank layout[]

If you decide to use this template, and you get used to the parameters, this blank layout would be easy to copy and paste:

{{Person
