TRACKS Program - Cemetery Free-Space Pages

This page has been accessed 52 times.

The second step in the TRACKS program is to find and update, or create, a cemetery free-space page for the cemetery we will be working in. The good news, is that this Cemetery Page is already waiting for you!

When you created your Cemetery Category in Step 1 of the program, you were asked to enter in the |spacepage= parameter. This link, as you may have noticed, was most likely Red, meaning it did not yet exist. Clicking on this link now, you will be taken to a page that is already named and ready for creation! If instead this page already exists, consult with your Caretaker to make sure the page is updated in accordance with this page.



This Cemetery Free-Space Page will serve as a sort of Cemetery Profile, where we can provide all of the information on the cemetery grounds itself, such as the location, history, notable burials and features, etc.

This page is the space for you to really tell the world about this cemetery, its history, who is a part of its overall story, and any interesting bits of information you feel a researcher may like to know.

The best cemetery pages will have tons of useful and interesting information on them, such as photos (especially those of the cemetery entrance, maps, plot layouts, or general photos of the grounds), as well as external links to other resources (FindAGrave, BillionGraves, and/or Wikipedia entries; the cemetery website; etc.).

Task 1 - Cemetery Page Layout

The preferred overall layout for all Cemetery Free-Space Pages is through a series of pre-defined section headers. If a particular section below is not applicable, feel free to omit that section; however, all pages should use the ==General Information==, ==History==, and ==More Information== sections at a minimum. Feel free to copy and paste the below template:

==General Information==
Cemetery name: <CEMETERY NAME>; (also known as '<OTHER NAME', 'OTHER NAME').


GPS Coordinates: <GPS COORDS>

add history of the cemetery here

==Notable Monuments==
add any notable features or monuments at the cemetery here

==Notable Interments==
add any notable burials or interments here

==More Information==
*See the [[:Category:CEMETERY CATEGORY NAME|Cemetery category]] for profiles of those who have been documented at this cemetery.

Task 2 - Cemetery Information

After you have pasted the template from Task 1 above, it is your time to shine! Feel free to pay with layout, add additional sections to help tell the cemetety's story, or to better present the information and relevant images. Remember, it is up to you to represent the cemetery!

Caretaker Check-in: Please wait for the Caretaker to review the Cemetery Free-Space page before continuing on!
