Memorial update

My father passed away some years ago and i was curious if i could find him on here. I did! The memorial was started by his sister. I want to remove her from the memorial. I would like to start a new one. My fathers sister did horrible things to him, my mother (his wife) and to his children. When i saw that she started the memorial i became sick. Her message to him was even more terrible. Please help. I would like to go into further detail over the phone. I want to honor my fathers dignity and the legacy that he left behind. He was an amazing husband and father. I need resolution.

Incorrect Information - Not Fairly Treated

Had comments posted on my immediate family buy a Find A Grave member (BlueJay) who is so distant a trip that she isn't related, post incorrect information. Then I had my uncle / godfather and who I am named after Memorial taken out of my management and placed under another "VERY Distant" relation without my permission. When I questioned To d A Grave about all of this, I was kicked off the site. When I asked why, their answer is always, "You violated Find A Grave rules and procedures." Nothing else. Yet Find A Grave totally ignored my complaints of harassment from Bluejay and did not follow their own rules when taking my uncle's memorial from me. And Find A Grave was sent my birth certificate showing my relationship. This site has absolutely no morals or ethics. And you can not rely on the information posted as pure truth.

Apology

Find a Grave is a Blessing. Free site follow the rules.

If your memorial page is merged then go to the person that created it first and ask to have it transferred to you, if they won't then add to the Memorial page that is there. Don't see an issue. If you don't want what you put on line used by other researchers then don't put it out there. Find a Grave is for everyone not just you. If you want your information for only you then put it somewhere else. Find a Grave is free and is an amazing site for True Genealogist as well as for family members of the deceased to have a place to find and visit that can not afford to go in person. Grow Up.

User's recommendation: Just follow the Rules and Enjoy Free Use.

Beware

As a person who was interested in stuff like this, I hated the community! My cousins grave got stolen and when I asked kindly for it back, I was harassed by people. I also added some photos of someone, this woman gets mad at me telling me to delete them in respect for the family (you can do unlimited photos on this persons grave so I dont think its that big of a deal). Just dont even bother with this site. I have since deleted my account and I dont bother going back on. Bullying is pretty common on there.

In case someone says something, this person was not a family member of the person I added photos of nor does she know the family. She told me this so I don’t exactly understand why she got so pissed off by it.

False Information

False information on Grave Site. When you post a family written Obituary, the facts in that Obituary may not always be the truth. Case in point Fictitious Native American Indian Chief!!! The person I am referring to created an alter ego proclaiming himself to all of a sudden to be a famous Native American Chief. He fooled some into believing this and when he died, it was written in to his obituary. He in fact has never been a Chief-Records will prove this! But people doing Genealogy will blindly follow this and think this is truth. You have created a monster by copying Obituaries!!!

User's recommendation: Do not believe everything Written in Obiuaries on Find a Grave.

Patricia, I am so sorry about your sister, may she eternally rest in peace and fly high, and know that she is by your side and supporting you all the time. This has happened to me, when the accounts I have added that are related to me, get stolen by a lady who then says she has accepted care when in reality, she didn't even ask for permission.

Then things get duplicated so there are double siblings. Hopefully, our issues get resolved, and once again, my most sincere condolences regarding your sister.

Gave info to manger & they dumped the management on me

Memorial # 1352**** Donald C Carter. Manager dumper Marylin W. 473****. If you don't find some one to manage, this will sit with out a manager at the helm. If I had wanted the job, I would have asked to do it. Never was interested. Thought Marylin knew something about the man my father met in France after they both got shot down in WWII.

User's recommendation: Remove me as a member of Find A Grave!

Gave information to manager Marilyn W #473**** on Donald C Carter memorial # 13525****. Then asked if she had more information on Donald to help me in my search.

The response was to dump the management job on me. Well, not doing it so it will sit without someone managing now and in the future.

I would assume you would want someone interested! Remove me from Find A Grave.

@Kris K

There is a way to transfer management to Find a Grave. When Find A Grave is listed as a manager, you can request to manage it via edit.

Try the transfer management button at the bottom of the page and enter the ID # 8.

I believe that is the ID # for Find a Grave. Or you could transfer it back to whoever sent it to you by entering their ID #.

Susan Schwartz works for Fairview Cemetery

Update by user Apr 12, 2020

Nothing

Original review posted by user Apr 11, 2020
Using FAG volunteers, memorials, &;;;;;;; photos.on behalf of Daniels Funeral Home the owner of Fairview Cemetery. If contributors do not transfer memorials to her then she Demands memorials be deleted, then repost them. She is /was a Paid employee of Fairview Cemetery. Susan Schwartz is Using Ancestry, a profitable business PAY for the website , data, etc. for Daniels Funeral Home a profitable business. Using volunteers without their knowledge to bennifit Daniels Funeral Home the owner of Fairview Cemetery. She posts lies, slander; false allegations on Contributors' bio page if they question her. Even gone so far as to threaten Volunteers with Mike Watkins, Representative for Daniels Funeral Home / Fairview , and a former attorney that they "will" go after them. She is using photographs that volunteers have taken of the headstones , for the bennifit of Daniels Funeral Home. She has volunteered thru FAG to "manage" the Fairview Cemetery, so she can & does abuse the access, plus since she is an Employee of Fairview Cemetery, she has access to Confindinal Records, & has on countless occasions called family members. Bottom line, Daniels Funeral Home owner of Fairview Cemetery has an unbalanced, unethical employee & they are to cheap to pay & provide a professional website for the cemetery.

Deleted Family member page Sophia Sevier (Garoutte)

My 4x out Great Grandmother Sophia Sevier (Garoutte) page was deleted. Michael Antonie Garoutte Sr her father was angry at the Seviers over the marriage of John Sevier Jr &; Sophia Sevier (Garoutte). I guess the Garoutte's thought this part of the family died out, nope still going strong with old members and new members. On our family tree write up is the part of the Garouttes up and down the lines of names. I'm a SAR member # 208245, which my descent went through John Sevier Jr & Sophia Sevier (Garoutte). Please advise about my family descent which has been proved. I'm not angry with Find A Grave about this, I have issues with the Garouttes on this issue which happened over 200 years ago. Also Sophia Sevier (Garoutte) is not listed in Michael Sr & Sophia Garoutte (Smith) children list of names.
