Help with table creation for Cemetery page

+5 votes
So I adopted the cemetery free space page for the cemetery that I have 1000s of photos for.  I was told that I should create a table for the photos, and I was also told that I can post them on the profile (that I categorized that for).  Which is best?

How do I create a table for the photos if that is what I should be doing?  Does it matter which one I do?

The preferred method of the Cemeteries Project is as Paula describes, adding the images to the profiles in question as they are created/found.

There is also a working method that some members use for their own personal research, in which they create tables of headstones and transcribe them there before creating/finding the profiles. See St Nicholas Churchyard Compton Surrey as an example (there is a link for a table of graves).

In my own opinion and work method, I find these tables to be redundant to the categories being used, so I do not use them.

Thank you. I was getting confused about proper protocol as it has changed (in general) and I'm still relatively new to the wikitree community.  I use categories and am on the global cemeteries project so I wanted to check.

Thanks again.

My personal opinion is that the photos should be put on the profile of the individuals that are referenced on the stone. I had thought that this was the preferred way to do this at this time.  

Also that person needs to be categorized with the cemetery name on their profile.
