Australia

When adding a cemetery category in Australia you should format it like the following example:

  • [[Category:Korumburra Cemetery, Korumburra, Victoria]]

You can see this category here: Category:Korumburra Cemetery, Korumburra, Victoria

Notice that first we have the name of the cemetery, then the city (or town) and state. Don't forget to include a comma between the cemetery name and the name of the city and another comma between the city and state.

Linking Your New Cemetery Category to the Category Tree

Once you make a cemetery category it must be connected to our category tree. To do so each cemetery category needs to be linked to:

1. Locality, State category
  • Example:
    • [[Category:Victoria, Australia]]
  • Example:
    • [[Category:Victoria, Australia, Cemeteries]]

These category links are put at the top of the text box on the cemetery category page. By adding these categories to the top of the text box we make our cemetery category a subcategory of the state cemetery category in which the cemetery is located.

Canada

The basic format for a Canadian cemetery category is Cemetery Name, City, Province. Here are a few correctly named examples:

Note that not all provinces and territories in Canada are structured the same, especially in rural areas! For example, Ontario has districts, counties, and townships, while Manitoba has rural municipalities. Please check the relevant province/territory cemeteries project page (listed on Project:Canadian Cemeteries) for further details.

United States

When adding a cemetery category in the United States you should format it like the following example:

  • [[Category:Buena Vista Cemetery, Brodheadsville, Pennsylvania]]

You can see this category here: Category:Buena Vista Cemetery, Brodheadsville, Pennsylvania

Notice that first we have the name of the cemetery, then the city and state. Don't forget to include a comma between the cemetery name and the name of the city and another comma between the city and state.

Please see: Guidance for Creation Of United States Cemeteries for further information and tips.

Linking Your New Cemetery Category to the Category Tree

Once you make a cemetery category it must be connected to our category tree. To do so each cemetery category needs to be linked to:

1. Locality, State category
  • Example:
    • [[Category:Marietta, Ohio]]
2. County Name, State, Cemetery. This is called the County Cemetery Category.
  • Example:
    • [[Category:Washington County, Ohio, Cemeteries]]

These category links are put at the top of the text box on the cemetery category page. By adding these categories to the top of the text box we make our cemetery category a subcategory of the county cemetery category and the locality category in which the cemetery is located.

County Cemetery Category

The county cemetery category is formatted like this example:

[[Category:Monroe County, Pennsylvania, Cemeteries]]

Notice that first we have the name of the county and the state followed by the word "Cemeteries". Please note the position of the commas. There is a comma between the name of the county and the state and a comma after the state and before the word "Cemeteries".

For an example of what this county cemetery category is linked to please see the link from the above example:

Category:Monroe County, Pennsylvania, Cemeteries

You will notice that it is the subcategory and linked to both the Cemetery Category for the state and the County Category.
