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.

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."

Find A Grave - I need help with deleted Memorials

I had a Find a grave memorial done for my great-grandfather Charles Eric Wennberg and it is missing. He is buried at Cedar Park Cemetery in the Chicago, Illinois area. I had all his children listed and other information. Gloria Moreau (4884****) conspired with Sandra Burns (18244****) to recreate my memorials and have mine deleted. Gloria Moreau actually recreated a memorial I had done for my grandmother, Alice Martino. She knew I had done one already. Then conspired with Sandra Burns to recreate a memorial of my mother, Jean Clause, and have it link over to her newly created memorial of my grandmother. They recreated my father's memorial Carroll William Meier and did the same. Not only did they do this to conspire against me, they did it with ill intent knowing my birthday was August, 16th. They did this on my birthday. I have 1/2 brothers of Carroll William Meier who CAN NOT stand Sandra Burns, because after they had taken care of my grandmother (Eleanore Wennberg) for years she came by and somehow was able to get my grandmother out of the nursing home she was at, and move her to another nursing home with out their consent or knowledge. I just wanted to create a find a grave so that my ancestors would be remembered. Instead of being able to do this, I am being gang stalked and harassed by these people and having all my information tampered with and destroyed.

Gloria is what, your half sister? This sounds like a family squabble that should be settled between the 2 of you.

Find A Grave - YOU HAVE THE WRONG INFORMATION ABOUT MY PARENTS

Recently the wrong names, dates, and relationships have been posted regarding my grandparent, parents and siblings. I have tried to contact your website to correct this horrific and blatant error, but to no avail. You are providing false information and do not even attempt to verify or correct the record.

I am frustrated! I have recently been struggling to obtain management of my great, great grandmother's memorial.

I have asked politely and been declined. I have explained, through "edits" that I am doing extensive research on this person and even spelled out the names descended to me. I have been outright refused for no reasons given. Diana #4734**** has several thousand that she seems to just be collecting.

I don't understand what I am doing wrong. I have reached out through FAG edit, and the rules are simply restated that I am already doing.

Please advise. Thanks so much!

Findagrave memorials are created by people and not a company. You contact the person who manages the memorial and suggest changes.

Go to the memorial page and click on 'suggest edits' and change the appropriate information. Then you have to submit the edits to the person who manages the memorial.

Do it in a calm and respectful manner. Judging by your complaint here that will be the problem.

Automatic linking of relatives by Find a Grave

Happened 2/28/19. I entered the memorial ID numbers for the mother and father to the memorial for a recently deceased daughter. Find a Grave automatically added the memorial ID numbers, names and info for all of the deceased brothers and sisters. The problem: They posted everyone of the siblings under the title of HALF SIBLING, which is 100 percent incorrect. The title heading should read SIBLINGS. Also, in a cross reference I checked the memorial's for the parents and on their memorial, their recently deceased daughter is listed separately from all of her siblings. She is listed as a half-sibling; this is incorrect. In order to delete this, I removed the memorial number ID's of the deceased daughter's parents, and this automatically removed her deceased brothers and sisters. This automatic heading by FAG needs to be fixed. I rarely use the site anymore after they were bought out and reformatted the site. I have found a lot of incorrect information on our family and they won't fix it! Including people posting non-family memorials and then refusing to turn management over to an immediate family member.

Findagrave didn't automatically link people. Memorials are linked because of submitted edits.

Likely the 'half siblings' are only connected to only 1 of the 2 parents.

When they get connected (through submitting edits) to the other parent they will be shown as full siblings. You have to be the one to submit the edits because likely no one else is ever going to do it.

The problem is that you didn't enter the same info for all of her siblings.

Find A Grave doesn't have a list of every grave in a cemetery. You'll need to contact the cemetery.

Alto
#1653976

The link for the cemetery is https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/99941/crest-haven-memorial-park You can search from that page. Given that the page has over fifteen thousand entries, you are bound to find something, A quick google turned this up for me, as searching from Findagrave's official search page https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery has become rather cumbersome since the new version was released.

Resolved: Find A Grave Memorial for my Grt. Grandfather Feb 15, 2018

The memorial was not a duplicate as created...The initials "H.K." put in the title name separated the duplicate status.............the "name copy- right' kicked in as soon as the initials "H.. K." were taken out of name....The original person who was given the name copy right status admitted her person had a different father/mother...but his wife & daughter belonged to a man with different 'parents'............ Wished it had been more corditial ending.

GOOD COMMENT...Content does not matter when copy right status kicks in.......The present memorial is just perfect and tells his life story as it was......I was so afraid the 'creator' who retained control of the memorial also controls the bio content and would change it back to the old parents she maintained for 9 years.

If you're a member of Findagrave you should bring up the memorial to James Preston Graham and click 'suggest edits'. Change the death date on the memorial and go down and click 'save suggestions'.

You can also add birthplace and place where he passed away to make the memorial more complete. No edits would be made by Findagrave by using another website such as pissedconsumer.

Probably your work is being confiscated by someone who does spredsheets there on the site. These dummies take info from others who do research work and then enter it to their own blank memorial and cry duplicate. They have blank memorials which to do their dirty work with, and they will NOT connect correct family lines to correct genealogy, and in turn they will harass others until they decide to leave the site.
