Shouldn't it be this one?

[[Category: Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Virginia]]

At the bottom of the page it stated that he was buried in Arlington National Cemetery, Washington D.C, section 17, site 20749.

I was not aware of the correct address for Wikitree. I went by the stated address and diod not know how to change that address to black.

Ok, Jon, thanks, it's no problem. It's also a common misconception that ANC is in DC. It's definitely in the DC area, but it is actually located in Virginia. 

To change the address to black (if it's correctly entered) it needs to be categorized under a parent category. So, if the cemetery actually had been in Washington, DC, the parent category would have been: [[Category: Washington, District of Columbia, Cemeteries]]. 


I understood that, but didn't have parent cat and didn't want to make one I was not sure of. Glad I didn't.

Not likely I'll run into that one again, but Thanks.
