Here's what's been decided ...
We don't categorize people by cemetery. We categorize people by location, and we create free-space profiles for cemeteries, which are then categorized by location as well.
For example, let's say a family member is buried in Bethel Cemetery, Hymera, Sullivan County, Indiana, and they also lived in the town of Hymera.
Step #1.) Put this in the bio/text section of their person profile:
[[Category:Hymera, Indiana]]
Step #2.) Click here to create a free-space profile and name it "Bethel Cemetery, Hymera, Indiana". (The link is also in your toolbar. It's named "New Thing" and under "Add".)
Step #3.) Put this in the text section of the new cemetery free-space profile you created:
[[Category:Hymera, Indiana]]
[[Category:Indiana Cemeteries]]
Step #4.) Put something like this in the bio/text section of the person profile:
Joe is buried at [[Space:Bethel Cemetery, Hymera, Indiana|Bethel Cemetery]].
Step #5.) Add to the text of the cemetery profile and include something like this:
== Burials ==
* [[Example-5|Joe Example]]
Here's a nice example of a cemetery profile created by Brian Chelton:

Indiana Cemeteries?
I have started one for my family [[|Pihama Cemetery]]. I hope i've done it all right.

My grandmother is buried there, so i've linked her up [[Holmes-3148|Gwen]].

However, i have a picture of her gravestone, which i wanted to link to the space so it shows under the page. however if i go into the gravestone photo, and link it to Space:Pihama_Cemetery%2C_Taranaki%2C_New_Zealand it says that's not right. so how can i attach this space in this photo? i know how to do it for people, but this odesn't seem to work!
Hello, Why can't we add people to cemeteries? I would like lists of who is buried in each cemetery I add.
