How do I get gravestone info entered on FamilySearch?
I live in the United States, but was recently in Edinburgh, Scotland. While there I discovered an interesting cemetery next to an old church and I took photos of some of the headstones and memorial stones. When I checked, none of the names seem to be on FamilySearch, Find A Grave, or Billion Graves. How can I get these names registered for others who may be searching for their family members?
You can enter the peoples names onto FamilySearch, creating a new person for them, and enter what information you have. This way a record will be shown on FamilySearch for them.Here is the link that will tell you how to add those memories and photographs you have taken in Edinburgh to their record that you have created.
You can also down load them onto Billion Graves, go in as a volunteer and add them to the data base.
I hope this information helps you.

Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
I suspect, from your post, that NONE of the individuals/persons concerned, from that Cemetery, are from your "Ancestral" Lines ...
IF, such is the case; and, you really would, like to have the individuals/persons concerned, from that Cemetery, included in 'Family Tree", of 'FamilySearch'; THEN, of course, you CAN certainly do that, if you desire.
The way, that you do that, is that you add those individuals/persons concerned, from that Cemetery; as, "Unconnected Persons", in "Family Tree", of 'FamilySearch'; as, they are NOT connected/linked to your "Ancestral" Lines.
Here is a "Knowledge Article", in 'FamilySearch':
How do I add an unconnected person to Family Tree?
'Gordon' has proffered, some excellent advice, about creating "Memorials", for the individuals/persons concerned, from that Cemetery, in the likes of, "FindAGrave" ( FindAGrave.com ); and, "BillionGraves" ( BillionGraves.com ).
I hope this also helps/assists, somewhat.
