FIND A GRAVE FORCED TO ADD PHOTOS TO MEMORIAL #143829989

1.0
Details
Find A Grave Forced To Add Photos To Memorial FIND A GRAVE FORCED TO ADD PHOTOS TO MEMORIAL #143829989 "Joseph King "Joe" Odom Memorial #143829989" In 2015 a memorial was created that was titled 'Joseph King Odom'. This memorial had just 1 photo added....it was his grave marker. In 2018 Find A Grave removed the 1grave marker photo from the memorial and activated this text under the memorial title 'add photo' which reads "Adding photos to this memorial is not allowed." which left "Joseph King ("Joe") Odom memorial #143829989 blank of any photos. By mid March 2018 FIND A GRAVE WAS FORCED to add 3 photos (including the grave marker photo that Find A Grave had earlier removed) to Joseph King Odom's memorial and Find A Grave also changed the memorial title from Joseph King Odom to Joseph King 'Joe' Odom.

Find A Grave - They're The Ones That Are DEAD

I have been posting information and photos on this site for some time. Recently I've had a "troll" that has been adding information and "meddling" with my information. I know who it is and I told them to stop. They didn't They're not family and most of what they post is wrong. This "toll" has filled a page with photo requests from local cemeteries. I don't have time for it. So I contacted Find A Grave SEVERAL TIMES to block this "troll" and delete their requests. NO ANSWER. Since this website is free I can't cancel my subscription. It's not a major issue, just annoying. And I get enough BS from other sources!

Find A Grave - HORRIBLE SITE - STAY AWAY

1.0
Details
Banned me for helping veterans families see pictures of their loved ones at Arlington National Cemetery where all online photos are free to use until someone can go to the cemetery and take a photo. I was continuously asked by family to post these pictures. I was threatened but never contacted by an actual admin. I will be cancelling my membership to ANCESTRY.COM who owns FINDAGRAVE. STAY AWAY HATEFUL PEOPLE AND JIM TIPTON IS ALLOWING IT.

Find A Grave - Need to ask a question

I need to know what they base their information on. If there is a month, day and year of death, where did that information come from? They could explain the various sources of their data on their website in an "About" page. Why don't they do that? Maybe they could charge for "extra services."

I find your comment about this woman's problem laughable. I fully understood the rules and guess what?

Find A Grave does not always go by their own rules. I was the manager of my fathers memorial. Had photographs and all sorts of stuff on there about him. Had a Find A Grave Troll that claimed to be a relative that actually wasn't go in behind my back and steal the account by contacting Find A Grave Support.

AND sense this has happened, they have posted on other family memorials untrue information. When I complained to Find A Grave, I found my membership deleted. And you call this fair? REALLY?

Type in your Web Browser, Find A Grave Complaints and I think you will see a whole diffrent side to the site. And its NOT GOOD!

they have been messing around with my memorials since 2014 taking photos from my husband and putting them with my aunt??????? they have removed family photos saying they did not meet company standards. they have volunteers that go to your memorials and add pictures. people that have no connection to your family. they have facebook page and twitter page. you can use findagravesupport@findagrave.com. they are based in Utah but do not give a phone number for contact. they have no business messing with our deceased relatives. that is your family not theirs
