These cemeteries are the same:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2341164&CScn=norriton&

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2440192&CScn=norriton&

Both names are used for this cemetery. The GPS coordinates for the "Dunker Burial Ground" listing are correct. The GPS coordinates for the "Brethren Cemetery" listing are not. The street address is Trooper Road, Norristown, PA.

Thanks
Tom

Please, please tell me how to get the first letter to be a capital R with a little v (hacek) over it?...and then the second letter in the last word should be a lower case r with a hacek?

And, the choices for location did not include Domazlice (which should have a hacek on the z), which is in the Plzen (hacek over the n) region, so I had to choose the wrong location! This isn't in Klatovy at all! How do I fix it?

THANK YOU!

For Vansant Road Cemetery. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=1982898

Please remove the picture of the sign that shows the old cemetery name (Clinton Memory Gardens). This should be replaced as the PRIMARY cemetery photo with the one of the new sign for Vansant Road Cemetery. I just loaded that photo, it has not been approved yet.

Could you also please verify that the AKA is also setup? The former name was Clinton Memory Gardens. I see no mention of that when looking at the cemeteries page.

Thanks
