Findagrave has recently (2014) been bought out by ancestry.com. There will be more for-profit changes to come. The intent of the site was to document every grave in the world for public consumption. The ethics of that quest are much debated, no respect for the dead or...

I personally have established memorials of my family members so that they are not forgotten. I posted pictures of the people if available for the benefit of our future family members who might be interested in their past heritage. I have met only nice people on this site, so I haven't a clue what any of you are talking about when you condemn the site.

Find A Grave Profile
After spending 10 years contributing memorials and gravestone pictures for hundreds of cemeteries I went on the forum to ask some questions about a "top contributor" that was leaving nasty messages on my profile. Later that same afternoon I could not get into my...

wow, That has happened to a friend of mine too....Just because he wrote to a "Top contributor" about duplications and somehow got him banned as well, specifically for "angry words" toward the "top contributor" who he only told him to stop duplicating memorials....(So much for enforcing their FAQ Rules...) This "Top Contributor" breaks so many of the rules that my friend got angry with him when he wouldn't transfer a close family member to my friend...

I have been with *** about 2 years. I have had so many mean emails from the volunteers and other contributors that I have taken all my personal information off of my profile. One email from a volunteer was so nasty that I sent an email requesting help from *** admin...

I actually did go in this morning and delete everything I had posted in Horry county SC on find a grave after receiving back to back nasty comments from one of the self appointed "grave police" who decided that no one should post a second picture because members of THEIR historical association had posted one and I was trying to "trump" their photo by posting pictures of different season and lighting or close up views where the wording was legible WITHOUT downloading and resizing. Very tacky.

Contributors at Find A Grave that take family members of others for their own gain, and not as a TRUE tribute to the deceased...have something wrong with their brains!!! BOB AND ANN ALVEY is another contributor that literally "run over" surviving family associated with Green Hills Memorial Park, in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.

These high volume contributors (with literally THOUSANDS of memorials) watch the website carefully to see if other contributors are cancelled by the "administrator" or scan obituaries for local newspapers in the area...to gain yet ANOTHER MEMORIAL to their credit. I am creating a website for my family that have passed away. This way no power hungry contributor of Find A Grave (or their BIASED administrators) can deface my families' character.

FIND A GRAVE IS TRULY A MONEY MAKING FARCE DISGUSED AS A CARING WEBSITE!! :(

The admins are able to go into any member's profile and edit it or delete it. They can and do alter, edit and transfer memorials that anyone has submitted. Whilst the owner is off resting on his piles of money, the site is left in the hands of tyrants and bullies....

I made a find a grave profile of my cousin who passed and it was stolen. When I tried politely to ask for it back or what happened it became a big fight & I was harassed by a man who supported her & basically told me that my parents did not raise me right, I’m an *** etc etc.

This went to far and find a grave should’ve blocked him from being able to be on. Thankfully she deleted it & I was able to make my cousin a new one in my name and make sure no one was able to steal it.

My advice, don’t get on it. They don’t do crap about cyber bullying.

Here is my letter sent to Find A Grave staff July 8th 2011. Dear "Find A Grave" Staff, The Name of your site makes it Very Clear. However, For Me, your Format was misleading. Your Format seemed to have been developed to share Family Heritage. With places for Birth &...

Get off your soap box you should try leading by example. I sure did enjoy the work you copied from Charlene's memorials.You may not know her by her real name? you called her a toad after you participated in getting her account deleted and then you duped her families memorials.

does this refrresh your memory of who i am talking about you wrote:

A full out escalation of disgust came when I found she triplicated and plopped the Hill family in the three largest cemeteries. I knew where the Hill's where located and it really pissed me off to find them and then have to tell this *** toad
