On October 13-15, 2023, 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 October 13-15, 2023, 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
