I have tried to upload pictures from Holy Sepulchure Cemetery which is part of the Archdiocese of Chicago Cemetery System. Located in Cook and Lake County’s in Illinois one of the largest cemetery groups in Illinois if not the largest. Every time I try to upload them it tells me it doesn’t exist. Why is that?

Answer from Geneanet:
You asked this question in August and we replied, as a reminder this is what we said: “A cemetery has to be created before any grave photos can be added to it. If the cemetery is not listed, have you tried creating it? Go to the Upload a grave or memorial screen and click on “Add the cemetery if not listed.” Be sure to enter the street address of the cemetery, not the GPS coordinates of a particular grave. Once the cemetery is created, you should be able to add photos to it. If this doesn’t solve your problem, visit our forum which is monitored by support, or if you are a Premium member, open a support ticket. We can assist you in creating a cemetery if necessary.”

I want to upload using a computer witth windows 11. I do not see the instructions.

Answer from Geneanet: When using a computer, it’s best to go to the upload page here. If you encounter any issues, such as finding an existing cemetery or adding a new one, visit our forum where someone will assist you. Thank you for your contribution!
