Dear all,


I would like to find the locations of all grave(s)/cemeteries in South
Africa. These are usually shown as Grave or Graves or Cemetery on
topographical maps.

The information would be used to direct members of the Genealogical Society
of SA for them to photograph the gravestones, as a resource for researchers
in genealogy and as a contribution towards the preservation of some cultural
heritage. See https://graves-at-eggsa.org/main.php?g2_itemId=43


The maps which contain this data can be downloaded from


I have downloaded the information for the Western Cape and am using the open
source GIS software QGIS, https://qgis.org/en/site/ , but have found that my
GIS skills are sorely lacking.


Ideally, a list of co-ordinates for each Grave or Graves or Cemetery per
degree square or per province would be first prize.

How can I use the software to create such lists or tables? Your guidance in
simple steps would be much appreciated.


Many thanks,

Peter Silbernagl
