There are too many contributors that are amassing management of memorials just for the numbers. They don't care if the memorial is correct or complete. When asked to transfer the memorial to a family member they fail to respond or just plain refuse. The administrators at Findagrave have set the ridiculous policy that family members must be within 3 generations for a mandatory transfer. If someone has an ancestor, say a 3rd or 4th Grand Parent on... Read more

Find A Grave, Find A Death,, and all the rest have my deceased wife Constance Frances Marie Lake married to numerous sordid characters. Including a robert carlton-monroe as of May 29, 1972. Most of them claim that carlto-monroe was a royal navy captain from england. Those accusations are hog wash. The robert carlton-monroe married my wife's mother Constance Frances Charlotta Trimble Keane. Who used my wife's identity... Read more

Recently I have many issues with ***. First the contributors hide behind their screen name and are in it for the numbers. The top 50! They should eliminate such rewards as we are talking about other peoples families!! The contributor will not get back to me or make changes. They don't know most of the people of the memorials they manage. I have sent in requests that never are answered. The contributor puts inscriptions in memorial that are NOT... Read more

Total strangers can post your personal info and your deceased loved ones' info without your consent! I am trying to get two pages taken down which to my horror I discovered contained my info. I do NOT want my parents' graves on the *** internet or my name, bday, etc. Who do these ghouls think they are? I read another person call them tragedy whores and that's right. Google yourself and get your info OFF find a grave if you find it, and for the... Read more

I have had issue with other find a grave members. Find a grave allows contributors to hide behind anonymity. Recording this information for posterity should require transparency. I used to really like find a grave but no longer. They did not read my e-mail to them and are unresponsive to e-mails. They merge work that has been done by one person into someone else's work.

In most cases of dispute to publicized deceased family data, legitimate businesses will concede to immediate family over a relative. To cite an example: The relationship between parent and child has greater merit for maintaining privacy, over claims of public domain presented by individual related through marriage. Two siblings disputing can become challenging. Most reputable genealogist suggest: Use common sense. Never alienate family members.... Read more

Maybe you can tell me how this happened, I recieved a call from a friend who thought I was deceased. I AM NOT! Please correct this information.

First let me say that FindaGrave is one of the best genealogical resources around. I've used this asset for years, and will continue to do so. A problem, however, which crops up from time to time, concerns the burial in national cemeteries of wives of veterans who die before their husbands. It's sometimes tricky to ascertain if military service information at the site pertains to them or their husband. I was recently researching the wife of... Read more

Now to get help you have to send it to Ancestry support, and be a member!!!!!, log on.......blah, blah, blah. It is the Mormon's. Money grabbers. And us Find A grave contributors who volunteer our health, expenses, and time to create, edit, add pictures to memorials, is to the financial benefit of Ancestry. I am disgusted that... Read more
