Hi Steve, thanks for your email on Cemeteries project.

I am still interested in carrying on working with it. I've added the cemeteries Tag now. Don't think i'm in a Google group, but hopefully that's ok. As I think I'm the only person working on cemeteries in my area, I guess I don't have anyone to collaborate with!?!?

Stay safe, Emily

Hi Steve, Perhaps I unwitting signed up for Cemeteries Project, wondered why I was getting the notices.

I am very behind on a large gedcom I created several years ago as a newbie. All I do is gedcom clean up these days I'm slowing down too so its probably going to take all the time and energy I have left!  :))

My apologies for confusing you and thank you so much for heading the Project!!! I have uploaded many to Findagrave years ago. Stay well, Barbara

Hi Steve. Yes I'm still active and am a member of the Nebraska USA Cemetery Team and am already subscribed to the Google Group. Also following the Cemeteries tag.

Yes Steve I am on the Illinois, USA Cemetery Team. I joined the Cemeteries Team to ensure that the Slott/Sloat Cemetery near Albion, Illinois (a cemetery started by my GGGrandfather James Slott and miss-named in recent years as a part of a nearby cemetery) got recognition, including photos of the gravestones in this small cemetery. Until someone can find and photo more "missing" stones I consider this cemetery to be complete (I live in the Seattle area so do not have access to work on the physical cemetery to provide any additional updates).

After the "team" decided that the complication of Categories was a major part of cemeteries I lost interest in all other cemeteries. I never signed up for Google Groups because I am more interested in Personal Profiles than in other Cemeteries - and both G2G and our Illinois Team Leader have provided enough cemetery info for me.

I am an active member of the Washington Team, working on cemeteries in my area. I did apply to the Google Group but you swiftly rejected me.

Thanks for checking in with us Patricia! I have you down on the Washington Cemeteries Team.

In regards to Google Groups, it is possible you were auto-rejected due to no comment identifying your Name (we can only see email addresses). If you can apply again and provide your name in the comments, I can make sure you get approved for access.

Hello Steve

Yes, I am interested in the cemetery project.

I have been working on a local cemetery called Valley View Cemetery near where I live. There are an estimated 30 000 graves at this cemetery, and I have photographed about 1400 headstones ( I have a long long way to go!) I am creating profiles, adding the headstone photo, sourcing them, then moving to the next profile.

I also created this free space page to focus on the photos I took. But, I am starting to have second thoughts about this page. The page looks good, but I'm not sure if there is a benefit above and beyond the cemetery page. It's something I'm mulling over.

Yes, I would like to part of the google group. I did sign up in 2019, not sure what else I need to do.

Hi Steve, Regarding G2G discussion 'How does one edit a category?'.

I agree with all your final notes and didn't want to extend the trail any further.

The Category system is comprehensive and well explained, but it's not easy for a novice user. Leandra is a distant relative of mine in Australia. She's a very experienced genealogist, but less experienced in Wikitree. I Renamed 'Lower Michum' to save her the bother of learning the whole category system. It's quite possibly she will want to learn about editing categories for herself and certainly has enough good information to work from.

I'm sure the Category Project will benefit if she chooses to join, Kind regards, Steve.
