Find A Grave - My Grandparents and Photos
A person visiting my home took a picture of my grandfather out of an album without my knowledge and posted it to his grave memorial. The memorial by someone I don't know, full of wrong information. The head stone are full of mud I think was smeared on to get a picture....

My suggestion would be for you to visit their graves, wash and clean the stones and take some good, high quality photos. Then upload them to the memorials.

Several months ago I was looking at the memorials I had added in Find A Grave and noticed some of them were missing, including MY MOTHER'S! I did find it, because I had included photos that no one else would have had. But several things had been changed, including the...

Before creating the memorial for your mother, did you search for her name? If there was already a memorial for her, yours was a duplicate.

Find A Grave only allows one memorial for each person. Anyone can report a duplicate to the administration for merging of the newer memorial into the first correctly located memorial (the original). Merges preserve all the additions (flowers and photos) from both memorials. Biographical information from the duplicate is retained provided the original memorial does not contain a bio.

When merges are made by administration, neither memorial manager is contacted. Perhaps the memorial manager reacted in kind to the message from you?

A cousin sent FAG a snippet of an email that I had sent her, regarding the fact that she was taking information directly from Canadian Headstones. When I realized what she was doing, I sent her an email stating "you forget that I live 5 minutes from Nanaimo Municipal"...

I think you should have all your memorials. I as well have come across one exceedingly mean woman there just as you have.

I have no idea where, or what dark {{Redacted}} hole some of these {{Redacted}} people crawl out of. KINDA SCAREY ATTITUDES ! There is absolutely no reason for any of these hoarders to act so childish and have a temper tantrum.

It is so weird! Good luck getting your memorials back :)

DareGreatly WROTE on Sep 02: "You didn't "pay" for the memorial; you merely sponsored it to get the ads removed. When you did that, the page informed you that sponsorships are NON-refundable".

I paid $5.00 to remove and to sponsor my memorial so by right I should have the ability to still access tools to remove it if i so desire even if they banned me for life.

Find A Grave is so disrespectful to the dead and their loved ones. So yes I did pay for the memorial and I should be able to remove it regardless of being banned, such immature snots at Find A Grave.

My brother died back in 2014. A few months after his death, I went on F.A.G. to create a memorial for him, which I should have every right to do! My memorial was deleted because this vulture named Ken Nagel had already made a memorial for him and he didn't even know my...

Your memorial wasn't deleted it was merged with an already existing memorial. Creating 2 memorials for 1 deceased person in no way honors the dead.

All duplicates should be merged but considering how many exist that's probably not possible. Some of you people are a real trip.

I agree with this person totally. I would love to just have the memorials for my family to help other family members.

But, it's very hard to get cooperation from the people who claim the memorial. In fact, I have yet had one to transfer ownership!

i don't agree with the name this consumer gave himself. That is NOT professional!
