Can we link our supporting records (obit, death cert. burial records) to the photos taken on BG and to Familysearch.

I would like to be able to link supporting records (obituary, death certificate, burial records etc.)  on BG to Familysearch.  Some of the records I have added will never have a photo because there is no headstone.  Also, it would be nice if we could link the BG records (obits, death certificate, burial records, etc.)  to BG photos when they are added.  Is this maybe a new feature we could work on?

This is available now.  If you do any transcribing you will notice that a screen will come down and ask you to compare the record with a family tree in FamilySearch.

Will there be a way to link records not photos of headstone with GPS to familysearch.  Records (obituary, death certificate, burial records etc.) is a seperate category.  I think it would be good if we could link to family search.  I think it would be good if we could link these records to the photo section when a photo is taken.

What if you placed a photo request and then once the request was filled added the extra detail to the GPS record.
