Cemeteries

Within each cemetery are a number of tabs. The history tab will feature cemetery and/or town histories if available. The Analytics tab shows graphs for deaths and longevity. The Surname and Given Names tab show Name Clouds. The larger a font the name is in the name cloud, the more often it appears in the list of names. The Map and Location tab is a google map image of the cemetery location. Finally, there is a Persons list cemetery of all buried persons at the given cemetery. These persons can be searched by surname, given names, birth year, death year, and marker images can be viewed where available.
