Since cemeteries are one of the most important resources for genealogists, Geneanet has launched the project 'Save our Graves' to capture graves before they are lost. More than 4 million graves are already available!

2 methods for uploading your pictures

1.Taking pictures of graves with a mobile or tablet

  • Go to a nearby cemetery, launch the app, select a project or create a new one, then take as many pictures as you want.
  • Once you're back home, upload the pictures to your Geneanet account via a Wi-Fi access point. These pictures will be free for every Geneanet member.

2. Taking pictures of graves with a camera

  • Go to the selected cemetery and take pictures of graves. Take a general picture and photograph all sides of the grave if needed so all names and information can be read. Use the maximum resolution of your camera. Don't rename or crop your image files. Click the link below to use our interface and upload your pictures.
