Geneanet ‘Save our Graves’ Weekend, May 21-23, 2021

Posted by Jean-Yves on May 12, 2021

On May 21-23, 2021, take pictures of graves in a nearby cemetery.

Since cemeteries are among the most important resources for genealogists, Geneanet has launched the ‘Save our Graves’ project to capture headstones before they are lost.

On May 21-23, 2021, we will need you to photograph as many graves as possible worldwide with the Geneanet mobile app or with your camera.

If you can’t take pictures in a cemetery, you can help to index existing pictures in the Geneanet collaborative database.

How to participate?

1. You have a mobile or tablet

  • Install the GeneaGraves app for Android or iOS,

  • Go to a nearby cemetery, launch the app, select a project or create a new one, then take as many pictures as you wish,
  • 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. You don’t have a mobile or tablet

  • 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 go to en.geneanet.org/cemetery/upload.

“Please click here to see if your nearby cemetery is not already listed on Geneanet.” OK, the cemetery is NOT on the map. How do you add it?? You don’t have any instructions on how to ADD a cemetery.???

Answer from Geneanet: Please go to https://en.geneanet.org/cemetery/upload/ then click “The cemetery is not listed?”.
