After reading through this page to get a general understanding of where we’re going, you must go to 'Edit' of this page in order to copy the suggested formats.

Very little of the content of this page is original from me. Primarily found, admired and copied from others.

My preliminary feelings on the most logical and expeditious way to develop a new Cemetery space is:

  • Take a gravestone photo'
  • Use the information from your photo to develop a profile for that person and add your image to that profile.
  • When you have one or more profiles from a given cemetery open a Space in the New Thing menu.
  • Name your new space using cemetery naming guides.
  • Copy appropriate templates from this page.
  • Populate your new cemetery.

On individual's profile page:

Enter your Cemetery's Category in 'Notes'

[[Category:xxxx Cemetery, City/County, State]]

Put link to Cemetery page in 'Notes':

Link to [[Space:xxxx_Cemetery%2C_city/county%2C_State|xxxx Cemetery]]
or (preferred) {{Global Cemeteries|sub=State |place=[[Space:XXXX Cemetery, City/County, State|XXXX Cemetery]]}}

If appropriate, cemetery plot location

Burial Information for NAME.[1]
