So confused here... First, you wanted to learn more about your grandmother so you found her memorial on Find A Grave.

Then you say there was missing information from the memorial and you're sickened by the disrespect of the member who added it.

Because it didn't have the horrible way your grandmother died? Or because you wanted the memorial to include the horrible details?

This site is Pissed Consumer, not Find A Grave, no one is going to call you from here. Go to Findagrave.com, look under the FAQ's and it tells you how to get a hold of them.

But look on the bright side, you just posted your phone number for the whole world to see. :/

*** can be helpful in research, but like Ancestry, there are so many errors, it hard to know what is right.Many contributors take photos and create records of every name in a cemetery--whether anyone is buried or not. Purchase of a plot and stone is called preplanning...

If someone is "mowing the rows" (taking a photo of every grave in the cemetery), they do not know more information than what is on the stone. Additional information may come from research OR from edits submitted by others.

There is no way to know what was added directly by the memorial creator or what was submitted by others and which the memorial manager accepted on "good faith" believing others would not knowingly submit false info. Therefore, blaming the memorial manager for "making up" info is unfair.

Good news!! You can submit corrections to the incorrect info on the Edit tab.

If your suggestion is declined, you can follow up with documentation to the manager by sending a "Suggest A Correction (the 6th option on the Edit tab). After 30 days, if the manager still won't correct the memorial, you can appeal to Find A Grave directly by forwarding the "Suggest A Correction" to the appropriate address and clearly/succinctly requesting the change.

If Find A Grave considers your father "famous" they will take over management of the memorial as they do all famous individuals. If they do not consider your father famous, you can message the creator of the memorial thru the Edit tab (6th option) and write a message, stating your relationship and asking for it to be transferred to you. It is a required transfer.

May 20th comment, did you read what I posted. Boyer is my Great Uncle and the info on him is wrong and the *** won't correct it even after I proved them wrong with documentation.

How is it that I'm the bad guy wanting it to be corrected? The *** won't correct it so I want my Uncle transferred to me so I can. Tell me how that's wrong? Idiots like you don't make this world go round.

Your main goal is to make it ugly.

Take your negative attitude and get lost. Your opinion is not needed or welcomed.

To the OP- I feel for you. I also agree with every single point you wrote about.

What a low down dirty shame that such greedy and grievous behavior and actions are not just tolerated- but are also encouraged and rewarded. SMH!

Their so called "rules" are seriously flawed. False, and/or unverified information from strangers should never be allowed for memorializing.

That greedy "contributor" is a real POS- shame on that grave robbing ghoul for not relinquishing a member of YOUR family; whom they SHOULDN'T have any claims on after a family member comes forward.

I think no matter how distant of a relative is down the line, should trump a stranger's claim anytime!

You have every reason to be disgusted and upset with *** for allowing this type of appalling disrespectful ownership of your relative's memorial.

Why would that hoarding ghoul have memorials for members of your family that are complete strangers to to them?! That is indeed "ghoulish" behavior.

The whole *** site needs to be held accountable for promoting such idiotic behavior these rabid "number cruncher's" amass!
