I include photos, whether of people, cemeteries, or land, the same way I do documents. I refer to them by their exhibit name in the body of the report, and then include an appendix with all of the documents labeled with their exhibit # and citation.

So a sentence might look like this: John Doe died 01 May 2008 in Anywhere, USA(footnote #) [exhibits 1-3]

The footnote would be the citations, the exhibits might be 1-photo of tombstone, 2-death certificate, 3-obituary, or whatever I have used to assert that John Doe died when and where I said he did.

I cite them using EE 3.37 and placing myself as the private owner. I don't see a way to cite the photographer, however, perhaps someone else will have a better idea of how to do this.

Subject: [TGF] Photography and citations

A quick question for all of you who perform cemetery photography - how do
you include the photographs in your research report? Do you place the image
into your research report and add a footnote or do you add a note in the
body of your report as to what was photographed and add the footnote? The
other question pertaining to this subject is on the proper citation of these
digital photographs. I've looked through EE and couldn't come up with
anything that fit this category.

Thanks for your consideration!
