Cemetery city

Post 12 July 2017, 06:10

I am trying to add a photo of a grave, but it won't let me because I need a city.  What do I do when the city in not listed in the drop-down menu?

We have added some cemeteries to the list for New York City and we hope this will help.

I'm just curious on how you add a cemetery that is not yet submitted?

This site is terrible. I think it should mainly stick with European cemeteries because there are many counties and villages in the USA that aren't entered in here yet. I'm on Long Island and Suffolk County isn't entered. the village on Suffolk in Virginia comes up. Also, I took photos which are now entered and indexed and map pinpoint is clearly in the incorrect place. It's in the correct cemetery, but not located anywhere near where the grave is.

I tried uploading an image from a gravestone in Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Center Moriches, which is in Suffolk County (Long Island), New York on my iPhone. It wanted Cemetery Name, did that.. made it Civil Cemetery. It wanted Place. It wouldn't take, Center Moriches. Looked at the map and actually zoomed in to Center Moriches! I tried tried the GPS coordinates which I found on FindAGrave.com. Tried clicking the red ADD CEMETERY, clearly didn't work... A total waste of time, especially if the moderators have to slowly add everything. Save A Grave... in the USA we don't have the situation of graves being eventually removed over say 25-30 years. Our cemeteries are pretty much permanent. I know Germany, for instance.. doesn't have the space and so 25 years after the last burial, grave plots are resold, if the current owner doesn't renew the plot ownership for an additional cost.

I can see that you could add several cemeteries.

Someone asked us to make a correction for the Long Island National Cemetery as it's not in Wyandanch, New York. Please see https://en.geneanet.org/forum/viewtopic ... 0&t=728139
