Thanks! I had the cemetery info and had built my family on Find a Grave, the missing piece was how to add the category in double brackets which you answered. so I'm good now. Thanks again.

Not sure if this is what you mean.  To add this cemetery category to a profile you would put this above their biography, with brackets as shown.

[[Category:Odd Fellows Lawn Cemetery and Mausoleum, Sacramento, California]]

Then the person shows up on that cemetery page. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Odd_Fellows_Lawn_Cemetery_and_Mausoleum%2C_Sacramento%2C_California

I added it to his profile so you can see it.  The brackets show up in the Edit mode, the category shows up on the Profile page.
Thanks! That worked! I was able to add the others.
