More than 5 million graves are already available!

Here are the cemeteries added in March 2023:

You’d think that this would help but it just adds another splinter collection to the existing freely accessible crowd sourced grave recording sites. Why not just collaborate with an existing site?

Answer from Geneanet: We have nearly 5.5 million graves with photos, throughout Europe where the American sites have little or no presence. One could argue that there could be a single website for genealogy, a single supplier of computers, and so on; we feel Save our Graves has advantages other sites don’t — for example, we don’t have a concept of anyone “owning” a grave record.

I included about 50 pictures from the Norden (Germany) Jewish cemetery in July, 2022. If you have any other pictures from Norden, please advise.
