Hi karani4ma,

Supporting records are documents that support the main records on BG.

  • Birth/Death Certificatessupporting_records_diagram1_v2-01
  • Marriage Certificates
  • Burial Records
  • Cremation Records
  • Unmarked Graves
  • Military Records
  • Headstone records WITHOUT GPS coordinates
  • Any other type of record that supports and validates any BillionGraves Headstone Records

Because BG primary records are GPS encoded photos, everything else is considered secondary or supporting.

Cheers Jim
