This snapshot box is designed to highlight a specific person in the history of a territory. Provide a very brief overview of information in the paragraph parameter. Important: Please do not attempt to include a full-length article, as this template is not designed for it.

{{Snapshot person
| name = (required)
| anchor = (optional; see note below)
| datetype1 = (if omitted, defaults to "birth"; options include flourished, lived, reigned, appeared, elected, death)
| date1 = (at least one date is required)
| loc1 = location of first date if applicable
| datetype2 = (if omitted, defaults to "death"; options include flourished, disappeared, removed, and buried)
| date2 =
| loc2 = location of second date if applicable
| other-names =
| titles =
| portrait = (use without "File:")
| paragraph = (short overview paragraph to provide historical context)
}}

This template also includes an optional anchor parameter that can be used to create quick wiki links. For example, including | anchor = Johann Schmidt allows for a quick link on the article like this: [[Article#Johann Schmidt]]. As with all wikilinks, this can be piped to create direct links in the encyclopedia directly to this snapshot ([[Article#Johann Schmidt|Johann Schmidt]]).
