Louisiana Cemeteries Category Page

This page is part of the [[Space:Louisiana_Cemeteries_Team|Louisiana Cemeteries Team], and was created in an effort to keep track of our progress in the over 2,700 cemeteries located in our state. Please add the cemeteries that you have completed or are working on to the table below in alphabetical order, along with other pertinent data, and include your best estimates of the percentages of completion for photography and transcriptions. Be sure to check this table before starting a new cemetery to avoid duplications of effort.

Note: You do not have to finish a whole cemetery before moving on to the next! You can certainly create profiles as you transcribe the images, and if you're doing a bigger cemetery in multiple visits, you can transcribe and create profiles for the sections you've done without waiting until you've photographed the whole cemetery.

I don't know quite how to update my progress as I'm not transcribing as a separate step before creating profiles. What I'm doing is comparing tombstones to my offline research trees and to the tree on Family Search where I've been collecting sources and then creating profiles for the tombstones and any other profiles needed to connect them to other profiles on Wikitree. Then during the scan a thon and after, I plan to add the tombstone photos and citations to the profiles. I've created a little over 160 profiles so far, all of which are linked to existing parts of the WikiTree tree and nearly all of which are linked in some way to my own family tree. Over the holidays, I visited the cemetery and took a few replacement photos for ones difficult to read and for ones that were previously open (living) but that now have a death date on the tombstone for recent deaths.
