Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

I have a Cemetery that crosses the PA and NY Border. Is this one point or two?

This is an unusual situation. The cemetery in question is Ceres Cemetery, split nearly equally in half by the New York Pennsylvania border. Since this is a single cemetery, only one point should be used.

And while the state border appears to make this tricky, you should still adhere to the information provided by authoritative sources regarding which state to enter. Since FindAGrave, the McKean County genealogical site, and the Painted Hills Genealogical Society all agree that this cemetery is technically located in Pennsylvania, then that is the state that should be entered.
