I’d like to know about my uncle’s memorial.

Apparently, there were two memorials made for my Uncle, Lorn Draves...mine and someone else. Instead of contacting either of us, mine got deleted and has been turned over to Find A Grave management. Id really like to have it back, since he was my favorite uncle. Please help me.

You are not allowed to add a duplicate, you need to read the rules. You make ask the owner to transfer it to you and 50/50 they will comply since you are not in his direct family

Someone posted an incorrect picture at my uncle's page. The message to the person who posted it went unanswered, so then I messaged Find a Grave. They also have not responded.

User's recommendation: Don't bother to try to get customer service from Find a Grave.

They did the same to my mothers headstone. Took a picture without consent and put it online.

My mothers burial was private and we even kept obituary offline. These *** come along and take a picture and put it online. That is an invasion of privacy.

So now I keep watching to see if they do it again. I will take legal action.

I have the same unanswered complaints!! Have numerous direct family memorials that have a lot of incorrect information.

All “owned” by a 6th time removed cousin. I have been requesting transfers for almost a year and ALL have gone unanswered. Have sent numerous emails to findagrave with 0 replies!! I did manage to track down this cousin thru Facebook.

She responded with “I have been traveling this year and can’t use up my data.

It will have to wait until Spring of next year!” NOT ACCEPTABLE!! I am trying to “clean up” those memorials for printing and addition to a genealogy book for an upcoming reunion.

Wasn't able to log in to my original Find a Grave account

Because I have a new email address, I was not able to log into my supposed current acct at tomvcl@***.com That acct no longer exists. There's no way I could log in to update my acct with the new email address of geefwiz456@***.com Now I've had to create a new acct with you in order to send this note. ... and of course have lost all my memorials, etc. Is there any way I can salvage my original account? i.e. the memorials and photos of family members that I had entered in to Find a Grave? Thanks, Tom VanCleve

My experience with Find A Grave is that the contributors with thousands of memorials and add hundreds a week are obsessive hoarders. They are not related in any way to those memorials, but they REFUSE to transfer them to family members unless you are within the RULES...

What a shame. I too have seen my ancestors on my mother's side with a lot of incorrect info.

Like you wrote, they add relatives that are not related, omit the ones who are.
