    Submitting Information

      I have information to add, where do I send it?
      Please
      locate the cemetery and use the submission forms available on the cemetery page.

      Can I submit a transcript?
      If it's one you created yourself, yes please! Locate the cemetery and use the submission forms available on the cemetery page.

      I have a photo of a missing stone
      Send it in! Locate the cemetery and use the submission forms available on the cemetery page.

      Can I submit a different photo for a headstone already photographed for this website?
      If the photo you have is easier to read than the one currently online, yes please! Many headstones degrade making it difficult to read them. It's also a challenge to photograph some headstones and while volunteers do their best to take and submit the best photograph, it's not always possible. To submit your photo(s) please locate the cemetery and use the submission forms available on the cemetery page to ensure we add the photo to the correct cemetery.

      Why do I have to locate the cemetery to submit or correct information?
      With so many cemeteries sharing the same or similar names each cemetery has been assigned a unique ID code. The forms available on each cemetery page have the ID code embedded into the form and it ensures that submissions made from that cemetery page are added to that cemetery. It helps us out tremendously when there's no confusion about what information should be added where!

      I have print photos, can I submit those?
      Yes! If possible please scan or have them printed to CD and send digital copies. If you're unable to do so you can send the print photos however we cannot reimburse for the cost of shipping nor return the photos.

      Do you have a mailing address?
      Yes but it is only provided to those submitting materials by post. Volunteers who need a mailing address can request it from the coordinator they are corresponding with.

      I submitted information about a cemetery, when will it appear?
      As soon as possible (see response time)

      When will my photos appear?
      As soon as they're indexed. If you'd like to index your own photos, please see our indexing cemetery photos page.
