Headstones and map locations?

Our Genealogists have been adding headstones to existing records and continue to do so.   Headstone images are taken at the site, which can provide additional information such as the actual location of the headstone within the cemetery.  If this additional information is provided, you will notice a satellite image below the headstone.  Please note that the location information is approximate.
