Find A Grave - 502 Bad Gateway
I have been trying to get into the findagrave.com website for an hour now, so I can see a family member's memorial. All I get is 502 Bad Gateway! What's going on with findagrave.com. Normally this is an awesome website to find information about family members; leave flowers and a message for a loved one; or even create a new memorial for a recently lost loved one. Did the website get deleted?

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.

Find A Grave - Harassment

I opened up a find a grave account to volunteer as a transcriber, and find some of my deceased family members, as I begin to manage and upload information about them I was blocked from uploading correct information about my family, I have a huge immediate family my immediate grandfather had 13 children, so that is why I was correcting information on some of their memorials I was blocked from adding and updating information.

Find A Grave - Deceptive Practices

2.8
Details
Please add my complaint to the ever growing list of dissatisfaction with Find A Grave Practices. My primary concern is that they led one to initially believe they care about family members managing family memorials. This turns out to be true in very limited situations. Primarily, that no one has created the Memorial. If someone has created it, and refuses to transfer to a family member, then you are out of luck. There are very limited instances in which the company will help the family member. But, for all those who are snapping grave photos and have made it another video game to compete based on their total number of Memorials well you are in luck!! Because you can refuse any legitimate family member, and your off to win your game!!

Original review posted by user Apr 11
Using FAG volunteers, memorials, &;;;;;;; photos.on behalf of Daniels Funeral Home the owner of Fairview Cemetery. If contributors do not transfer memorials to her then she Demands memorials be deleted, then repost them. She is /was a Paid employee of Fairview Cemetery. Susan Schwartz is Using Ancestry, a profitable business PAY for the website , data, etc. for Daniels Funeral Home a profitable business. Using volunteers without their knowledge to bennifit Daniels Funeral Home the owner of Fairview Cemetery. She posts lies, slander; false allegations on Contributors' bio page if they question her. Even gone so far as to threaten Volunteers with Mike Watkins, Representative for Daniels Funeral Home / Fairview , and a former attorney that they "will" go after them. She is using photographs that volunteers have taken of the headstones , for the bennifit of Daniels Funeral Home. She has volunteered thru FAG to "manage" the Fairview Cemetery, so she can & does abuse the access, plus since she is an Employee of Fairview Cemetery, she has access to Confindinal Records, & has on countless occasions called family members. Bottom line, Daniels Funeral Home owner of Fairview Cemetery has an unbalanced, unethical employee & they are to cheap to pay & provide a professional website for the cemetery.

For about a month, when I enter a name or a memorial number, it will come up on the screen for about 3 seconds and then just disappears. I have restarted my computer numerous times. Deleted the current connection and reconnected multiple times. I am a genealogist and am currently adding photographs to my local cemetery on Find A Grave. I am currently working on seven different trees for others. Please help me solve this current perplexing problem. I LOVE Find A Grave and have had excellent service from it. I want to regain that good service. Thank you very kindly.

Find A Grave - Don't use their information
FindaGrave volunteer Chuck Black refuses to change the correct spelling of my mother's maiden name. Ironically he is a cousin whose mother had the same maiden name. The entire memorial is listed as van Brocklin rather than Van Brocklin (or VanBrocklin) with no source document. He has made numerous errors in the family information including a child attributed to my 2nd great maternal grandparents who never even existed. I can't get that removed from the information. For whatever reason this individual seems to enjoy weaving myths including one derogatory remark about my great aunt's ex husband and yet had listed a person with a similar name.

What is wrong with posting a photo on this website? Did ya pick out a cheap stone and are embarrassed?

I think it is beneficial to have the photos, if I can’t travel to another state to personal take a photo I’m glad someone put that photo on here so I can at least see the stone. Do be so sensitive, we all need to know from where came.

I cannot reach anybody at Find-a-Grave if it requires interaction with links on the home page. I am still getting notices and edits--but I am no longer recognized by FAG! No issues or misbehavior on my part--just blip and GONE.

Log into your account from some other computer, like from a local library. If you can get into your account, it’s probably something to do with your computer. Maybe a setting is turned on to block the site on your computer.

Find A Grave - Incorrect information on graves

I need to contact the individuals who have posted incorrect information concerning my grandmother, grandfather, greats, etc. I do not know how to contact the submitting individuals. The information they have posted is completely inaccurate having my grandmother a half-sibling to her father and my great-grandmother married to her father-in-law. This information needs to be corrected immediately! I do not know where the submitters obtained their information, but I need to get it corrected immediately!
