Carole,

I know it is hard to read and understand but heck if it is in France it only makes sense that it is in French - If you ask and wait there are usually people who will translate things for you - or if it is not way way old then the google translator should work to help you find the people you need to find - just ask in G2G like you just did with a link to where the French stuff you can not read is and someone is bound to come along and tell you what it says
ok, can we at least put a NOTE on the cemeteries  FRAN CE  where to find the France cemeteries... I sure would like to be able to find them or guess I will just not use the cemeteries category... it is too frustrating.  sorry France.

I have been adding cemeteries to the "France Cemeteries" category (English language) precisely for the convenience of users like you. "France Cemeteries" is intended to make the American and CWGC cemeteries easier to find through English language categories. Meuse-Argonne was not there, which was an oversight. I have fixed it.

I would like to point out that even before it was added to the English-language category, the cemetery could already be found under the American Battle Monuments Commission category, as well as the World War I Cemeteries category, both English-language categories, both categories where it is logical to look when looking for American military cemeteries, whether on European soil or not.

I object to removing the cemetery from the French language category. The cemetery is located in France, after all, and we do have an interest in those who sacrificed their lives for liberty in our country, no matter where they were born. I think it should be available through both languages.

that is nice Isabelle - glad it is in both for every ones sake - thanks
Thank you.. There are so many categories to look for.  guess I'm not as NOSY as I thought I was,  I have to admit I DID NOT check out the Military cemeteries  how short sighted of me.  I will certainly  use it now....  Thank  you, but in my defense  I am a Civil War Girl and none of them were laid to rest "Over There"  this is my first Project in World War I... Thanks again.

You've done a beautiful job on those, too, Isabelle. 

And there is no need at all to remove those from French categories. This doesn't need to be "an international incident!"smiley

yes,  sorry I brought it up.  But how else do we learn how to make it, well easier for us "advanced aged"  folks  to use it,  let alone understand it.  All of you wikitreeers  are  SUPER GR8!!!!!!!!  and I LUV U...  especially now that the other guy, you know who I mean,  is so commercialized  and ugly...XXXXXXOOOOOOO ps: I do not mean to sound mean... Cuz' Carole
During my research of Canadian WWI Soldiers, I have found that on rare occasion that they are buried in a civilian (non CGWC) and not a military cemetery.
