The goal of the Global Cemeteries Project is to create and/or update profiles of our deceased ancestors using original content, and reliable sources. When working on our ancestor profiles, we honor their profiles by ensuring that:

  1. all duplicates profiles are merged into their lowest number;
  2. relevant cemetery categories are added;
  3. biographies are cleaned up, and conform to the WikiTree Style Guide (ask the Profile Improvement Project for help if needed); and
  4. profiles are connected to the main WikiTree family tree (ask the Connectors Project for help).


In order to meet our Goals, team members partake in a variety of tasks, including (but not limited to):

  • photographing tombstones and memorials;
  • transcribing the data contained within these photographs to ancestor profiles;
  • finding and adding reliable sources;
  • grouping of these profiles through the use of relevant cemetery and regional categories; and
  • documenting the history of our cemeteries through the use of free space pages.
