This page is part of the Global Cemeteries Project.

All profiles and cemetery free space pages need to be categorised as part of the overall category structure for the project. This structure looks like this:

You will also need to categorise the Cemetery free space and Profile pages to the correct place name category. If you are no sure how to do this, contact the relevant geographical project for the area you are working on or post in the Global Cemeteries Google Group.

For Country specific clarifications to this structure, please see the individual Team pages.

Category Info Box

This is optional. If you do not use a CIB, please set up your category page to have:

  1. At the top: Parent Category tags (parent category and location category...most cemeteries have two parents) If one goes red after you save, please address that situation by setting it up as well. May require a web search for information.
  2. Next: A brief description of the category including pertinent information, such as an address or a link to findagrave, billiongraves, a GenWeb transcription page, wikipedia, or whatever. A least one sentence describing the cemetery. (For example: The cemetery is located at 123 Main St in XXX town, whatever province/district/state, Country. Then save.

You are not required to add this box also known as the CIB to a cemetery category page, but if you do like it and use it, I have a few tips/guidelines....

There are two types of a CategoryInfoBox used for cemeteries.

Category Info Box Cemetery

Here is the template with basics. There are other parameters that can be inserted (all listed here), but I usually use this set, which covers all pertinent information.

Explanation of the template parameters:

{{CategoryInfoBox Cemetery
|name= Name of the cemetery. It represents just the title of the CategoryInfoBox Example: Pokopališče Žale
|parent= Name of the lowest parent category that groups the cemeteries. Example: Slovenia Cemeteries
|project= Optional. Name of the project, that oversees the categories.
|location= Name of the lowest location category that the cemetery is located in. Example: Ljubljana, Slovenija
|spacepage= Optional. Name of the associated Free Space Page without the Space: prefix. Example: Belleview Cemetery
|findagraveID= Optional. ID of the cemetery on FindAGrave website. It is the number in URL of the cemetery. Example: 1983192
}}
  1. The parameter delimiters (words) and the = sign must remain
  2. Explanation of the parameters:
    1. name = Cemetery Name (just its title) (required)
    2. aka = if the cemetery also has other names, list with comma between each name (optional)
    3. parent =adds the parent category. In the US, you would put the county name only and you do not ##add the , Cemeteries part of it. Other places, most leave off the , Cemeteries part and the CIB adds it (required)
    4. location = adds the location category so it would be the place name. (required)
    5. findagraveID = the cemetery id number from findagrave. can be found if you look at the cemetery page in findagrave (optional)
    6. billiongravesID = same as findagrave, the cemetery number at billion graves.(optional)
    7. spacepage= Name of the associated Free Space Page without the Space: prefix. Example: Belleview Cemetery
    8. webpage = url for the webpage. (optional)
    9. coordinate = GPS coordinates (optional, but if you have it, it adds link to map)
    10. address =address, if used, on one line only. Can add Phone: after the address if you have it. (optional)
  3. Optional parameters can be left blank after the =. Just skip them if you don't want to fill them in or don't have the information.
  4. This CIB is approved for use only on category pages, not on individual or free-space profiles.
  5. CIB goes at the top of the category page with nothing above it. Any additional category tags (i.e. military or religious category tags) go below the CIB. Links, a photo, or what have you all go below the CIB.
  6. CIB automatically adds the parent and location categories so you do not have to type those in, assuming you have the correct parent and location filled in.
  7. Red links may show up if the location category does not yet exist on WikiTree. Please give those red links a parent. It may require a google search, but please take that step. Many of the parent categories are already set up, so if one of those shows up red, you have probably misspelled the parent category or used a comma in the wrong place or something like that. (Remember [[Category:Whatever, Whatever]] so spaces and commas must be correctly added.)
  8. You do not need to repeat all of the information from the space page to the category page. Category pages should be very brief and contain enough information to identify what you're grouping there.

Category Info Box Cemeteries

Here is the template with basics. There are other parameters that can be inserted (all listed here), but I usually use this set, which covers all pertinent information.

{{CategoryInfoBox CemeteryGroup
|parent= United States
|location= page
|project= New Jersey Cemeteries
|findagraveLocID= state_33
}}

Explanation of the template parameters:

  1. parent = main|<parent name> Required. Name of the lowest parent category that groups the groups of cemeteries without Unsourced Profiles. Or main for the top and 1st level categories. Example: Asia
  2. location = page|name|<name of location category> Name of the associated Location Category. Or name if it is the same as name parameter :Example: Slovenia
  3. project= <name of project> Name of the project, that oversees the categories.
  4. findagraveLocID= Optional. ID of area search on FindAGrave. Example: https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/search?locationId=county_245
}}
