Take pictures of graves in a nearby cemetery!

Because cemeteries are one of the most important resources for genealogists, Geneanet has launched the project 'A Cemetery for Posterity' to capture headstones before they are lost.

3 methods for uploading your pictures

1. Upload your pictures one at a time

If you have a few pictures to upload (family graves, commemorative plaque, memorial), we suggest that you use the basic form. You can also index names as soon as the pictures are uploaded.

2.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.

3. Taking pictures of graves with a camera

  • Go to a nearby cemetery and take pictures of graves with a camera.
  • Once you're back home, upload the pictures to your personal computer, then send a message and we will explain how to import your pictures to your Geneanet account. Of course, you can also send us a message if you already have pictures of a cemetery on your camera memory card. ( Email address : archivalrecords@geneanet.org )
