Instructions for Posting a Worldwide Cemeteries Waymark:

Name and Title Requirements

The Name of the Cemetery
This should be taken directly from the signage, or in the absence of signage, any historical documentation

Title Conventions: The name of the waymark MUST follow this format: Name of the cemetery - City, State/Country. If it is not within a city or town, the please use another regional designation - whatever best identifies the location of the site.

Photo Requirements

Two photos are required

***UPDATE 7/7/2020*** The first photo requirement must be an original, non-copyright photo of the CEMETERY sign. If the cemetery has no sign, a wide-angle photo of the main entrance of the cemetery, again, this picture must be an original non-copyright.

The second picture should be an "art shot" showing the cemetery.

More pictures are always welcomed, especially those showing unique features of the cemetery.

Specifics for Church Cemeteries - what the above means that signage for the church cemetery is required, use of the actual church sign will not completely fulfill this requirement. If the church cemetery itself does not have have signage, then, the area photo of the road or sidewalk area used to access the cemetery along with the church sign, if available would be required. If and only if there isn't a road or sidewalk leading into the cemetery, this requirement can be waived by an officer's discretion.

The following picture demonstrates an acceptable churchyard cemetery sign to fulfill the first picture.

Identify a cemetery and record its location. Collect as much information as you can get about this place and history. We know, that sometimes this is not so easy, but at least try it.
