Let me be clear: I would not have thought of templates on my own. Even if I did, I wouldn't know how to create one.
The template below with the two flags may be used on any emigrant from one country to another - in this case, for my grandfather, who came from Finland to America in 1912.
Other templates I use frequently include a ship template, for gathering all the people who came on a ship together on one page, from the many various profiles, so that their history can be understood as a group. My favorite is the Medieval Lands template, which provides an explanation and a link for documentation found at Medieval Lands.
Not all the examples I'd like to use will work on this page, as they are programmed especially for WikiTree. The point of templates is to have a compact bit that is quick to paste that collects or facilitates a great deal of information.
