Save Our Graves smartphone app in cemetery

Because 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 5 million graves are already available!

Here are the cemeteries added in August 2022:

Canada

England

You can also participate in the preservation of cultural heritage with Geneanet by taking photos of graves. It’s easy with the GeneaGraves mobile app!

Thank you!

In August, I added a large number of pictures of graves in the Jewish cemetery of Norden, Germany (see: https://en.geneanet.org/cemetery/search/?niveaux_1___895510610__=cimetieres&niveaux_2___195642353__=cimetieres%23cimetiere&niveaux_2___3984312462__=cimetieres%23cimetiere_militaire&niveaux_2___285525066__=cimetieres%23eglise&niveaux_1___1875158291__=monuments&niveaux_2___4127155817__=monuments%23monument&niveaux_2___3990310615__=monuments%23plaque&sexe=&nom=&ignore_each_patronyme=&prenom=&prenom_operateur=and&ignore_each_prenom=&place__0__=Norden&zonegeo__0__=Germany&country__0__=DEU&region__0__=&subregion__0__=&type_periode=between&from=&to=&exact_month=&exact_day=&exact_year=&q=&ignore_each=&go=1

Why does this not appear here?

Answer from Geneanet: It seems the Norden cemetery already existed in our database before your important contribution nearly doubled the number of graves recorded there. In general, our “Cemeteries Added” posts mention only new cemeteries which weren’t on Geneanet before. We appreciate your efforts which are so helpful to other genealogists!


What a brilliant idea and thank you to all those making the effort to share this important family history tool
