I contacted Find-A-Grave this morning as I recently learned that this notorious DieHard was now PIRATING my memorials - taking memorials I had created, somehow deleting them and creating her own, leaving out much of the information I had posted such as bios, but certain to reuse the pictures I had posted. I went ballistic since this was not my FIRST ordeal with this heifer! I contacted Find-A-Grave, and not only was I REPRIMANDED for my... Read more

Some of the information in the biography about my deceased relative is untrue. When I asked the "biographer" how she did her research, she told me that she "googled" the name. She cut and pasted some material which I had written, she used Wikipedia, and she made up the rest! She did not use any primary resources. This makes me wonder how many other of her "biographies" are also inaccurate. I am going to try and get her "biography" removed.... Read more

There is one thing about Find A Grave that drives me crazy, and that is that they allow so many pop-up ads that the website constantly freezes! Every single time I use Find A Grave, I find myself having to close out of the website numerous times and then go back in because of the pop-up ads causing the site to freeze. It is beyond me why Find A Grave allows all these annoying pop-up ads. I find it outrageous that such a website allows this! ... Read more

My genealogy research started with findagrave and I am deeply grateful to the patient, wonderful folks who helped me during that time. There are still many users on the site with only good intentions of helping others. Having said that, in the past 5 years I'd say, there has been more unpleasant people making user experience dreadful. Some things I've seen : --A woman flipping out and harassing people for fulfilling photo requests and... Read more

I have posted thousands of pages and all of my own familys. The thing I don't like is that the site isn't blocked from someone taking your photos and posting them all over without permission. Billion graves has it set up so no one can take the pictures. I don't care about the headstone photos, but my personal family pictures I believe it should be required for people to get permission. All of my pictures are all over Ancestry from people who... Read more

Alma King's memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 138185591 )shows a link to her supposed husband, Matthew Cole (1760-1810). However the person who posted the memorial included a notice from the Burlington Free Press, January 17, 1845: "Married ..on Wednesday evening last, Dr. Matthew Cole of Williston, to Miss Alma King, daughter of Dea. Lyman King, of this town." Alma King obviously married a different Matthew Cole but the creator of the memorial... Read more

There seem to be so many ads popping up, so I wonder if that is what is slowing the website and making it unresponsive. I can't type in data because it keeps stalling. Can Ancestry fix this or are they more concerned about having ads all over the screen? I pay no attention to the ads so stop the overload!!!! It is very discouraging to use the site, especially since it was people like us that built the data base. Now Ancestry is making money... Read more

I have tried to add my father's name (125461965) to my sister's memorial (59096098). It is currently in pending status and has been for several weeks. How long does an edit remain in pending status before it is finally approved and placed on the memorial? Thank you.
