I have corrected this mistake. I believe it was a typo on the part of the editor who created the place, with no intent of insult. The JCAM map (here) shows the name as "Sons of Jacob of Salem", and there may have been a typo followed by a spelling checker correction gone wrong.

Our apologies for the unintentional upset caused.

My level: Newbie
I created my login to get help getting this resolved.

Requesting a name change to the location which is a cemetery called "Sons of Jacob" in Danvers Massachusetts. It currently displays as "Sons of Jacob of Islam". 1) It is not the name of the cemetery, Waze is the only place this addition has been made and 2) It is a Jewish cemetery, so this is actually an additional source of upset to mourners. It is one in a complex of Jewish cemeteries.

I hope I have correctly submitted this here as a newbie to the system. Everytime I go here with Waze this upsets me. Thank you so much for your help.

This is what appears on Waze right now:
Sons of Jacob of Islam
16 Buxton Rd, Danvers, Massachusetts ... 341&zoom=6

Thanks so much. I am actually at the cemetery right now the sign says sons of Jacob cemetery but I suppose that’s good information that the folks interred here are from Salem. Thanks so much for your help!
