Adding A New Memorial    Modifying An Existing Memorial    Defining Relationships

Adding A New Memorial

To add a new memorial click the Add New Obituary link in the menu bar and you will be presented with the following data entry form:

Adding a new memorial

  • Honorific is optional and allows you to select a name prefix such as Mr. or Mrs. or Ms.
  • First Name and Last Name are required. Middle Name is optional.
  • Suffix is optional and allows you to select a name suffix such as Sr., Jr., III
  • Gender is optional and if changed to male or female is used in searchs and also to create the default obituary text.
  • Memorial Image is optional and allows you to upload an image (most commonly a picture of the deceased).

 Click the Submit button and upon successful creation of your new memorial you will be redirected to the memorial edit page:


Modifying An Existing Memorial

Modifying an existing memorial is very straightforward and easy to understand. Most of the fields shown in the edit form are self-explanatory but there are some fields where a little clarification might be helpful such as Date of Birth Alternate Caption and Date of Death Alternate Caption which allows you to specify something like Sunrise for Date of Birth and perhaps something like Sunset for Date of Death.

Circa in the Date of Birth and Date of Death specifications if set to yes, indicates that the date is approximate, for example you know the date of birth is somewhere in August of 1951 but don't know the exact day of the month.

To edit a memorial  click the Edit link while displaying the memorial you wish to modify (you must be the owner of the memorial). You will be presented with a data entry form similiar to that below:

Adding a new memorial

Use one of the "Other" relationships to link to the memorial of someone who while not directly related had a significant relationship with the deceased such as a close friend, member of the same group or band, etc.
