  • Place = cemetery name (begin typing and name should appear for selection in dropdown). This is a very helpful step that will allow for the creation of an index of linked person pages for each cemetery page (a unique feature in werelate).
  • Description = if desired, add text
  • Source = corresponding source citation number (ex. S1, S2, etc.)
  • Image = if desired, add corresponding image number (ex. I1, I2, etc.)

  • Title = Hittagraven (begin typing and name should appear for selection in dropdown)
  • Record name = Grave Recorded [URL], where URL = the specific URL to the record page,
