What happened to the list of names in a cemetery?

1 like 0 dislike
Before the  "improvements" to the site you were able to look up the people in a cemetery by name. Now , unless I have missed a clue somewhere, I can only look at who is in the cemetery by photo. It makes it a long tedious process to find loved ones. I have to go through pages and pages of photos instead of  an  alphabetical list.  Disappointed.

It is still there. Go to the cemetery page and scroll down. You will see a search frame and the word BROWSE. If you are looking for a particular person, enter the last name and hit BROWSE and it will search and display all entries in the cemetery with that name. You can enter just a single letter in either first of last name and it will return all itmes with that value (unless the cemetery is extremely large - in which case try to give it a little more detail.

If you add nothing in the search data field and just hit BROWSE it will display all records, alphabetically, starting with those with * - ? or other special characters, and you can page though the entire list if you want.

Hope this helps; reply back if you need more assistance.
