Find A Grave - Where Is Their Contact Information?

The website insists that I update my password for security reasons. I updated the password and it keeps saying I've already used that password. I've tried words and combinations I've never tried, but I keep getting the same error message. Yes, I'm using all of the criteria like at least 8 characters, use a numer, use a special character and use a capital.

I want to add obituaries on my parents gravesites. How do I do this? Can I add newspaper articles? Can I add Word Documents? I notice that a number of people have done this but I can't figure out how to do this on the website. Thank you for providing such valuable support for my family history search.

Find A Grave - Horrible

When I read that only family members could post I was pleased about that. That is not the reality, as no family member would have submitted my father married to his Grand mother with his Aunts and Uncles as half siblings. The information on my whole family was wrong and not submitted by family, it was submitted by the fellow who runs the site and another unknown person.

I doubt the site owner submitted the information. It was probably an honest mistake--the person who made the wrong connection did so by putting your grandma's ID number in the "spouse" field rather than in the "mother" field (they're right next to each other.

Why don't you click the "Submit a correction" button rather than get upset and vent at another website?

Or provide their names and ID numbers here and I or someone else will do it. If you ask nicely, you may even get an apology with the task being done.

Spread sheets are allowed. Not sure what you mean by "confiscate the work of others" as no one can "own" facts such as names, dates and burial locations. If something is wrong, just submit an edit to fix it....it's so easy, not like fixing an error on a tombstone.

Find A Grave - Memorial #14972****

I have accidentally connected memorial #14972**** (Alice McCormick) to memorial #19356**** (Alexander McCormick). I don't know how I did this but now I can't seem to delete. Alice McCormick should not be connected to Alexander McCormick. I do not like your new system.

I don't understand the purpose of this complaint as the memorial for Alice McCormick is in Forest Park, Illinois and the memorial for Alexander McCormick is in Forest Park, Illinois. Neither are buried in Boston, Massachusetts. If you want a relationship corrected you'll have to contact the owner of the appropriate memorial.

Find A Grave - Loved old site

Do not like the new site at all. You do not get all the information you got before on one page. Didn't have to search to find the information you were looking for. You could go to the site and click on relatives names and it would take you to their site also so you could see right away if they were buried in the same cemetery. BRING BACK THE OLD SITE; IT WAS EASY TO ACCESS AND UNDERSTAND AND FOLLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Loved the pictures of the cemetery entrance in some instances, so if you were going to visit you would know what to look for. There were also pictures of a headstone which was helpful also. And could get a map to the cemetery with GPS coordinates on it which is great! WANT THE OLD SITE BACK PLEASE.

What's the weekly limit of Find A Grave "Add Photo" requests?

Each Sunday I send a message to Find A Grave volunteers asking them to take a picture of family gravestones. I am a senior and unable to drive so I greatly value when a volunteer adds a picture to the memorial of one of my family members. My question.....what is the limit of pictures I can request per week? Last Sunday I was able to request 10. This Sunday, I got the "limit message" after requesting only 5. The opportunity to request pictures is very special to me because I'll never get to other states to see where my family rests. I would value clear direction from Find A Grave personnel. Thank you. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Is that enough words?

You can request 20 photos in any 7 day period. The counter doesn't reset on a particular day of the week, it's just a running total.

So, if you request 10 on Sunday, 3 on Monday, 4 on Tuesday and 3 on Wednesday, you'll have to wait until the next Sunday when you'll be able to request 10 more. Then if you wait until Thursday, you could request another 10.

Taking away the Old site for Find A Grave

I am just sick. I could find a grave so quickly on the old site and I cannot find not even one cemetery or person on the new one. It is the worst thing that was ever done. I had used the old one for so long and I could pull it up quickly on my I Phone if out looking for a cemetery and now, I cannot find anything. I hope the one who done this finds themselves sorry enough to put the old one back on. It says the old site is still there until November, But I cannot find it. This NEW ONE is TERRIBLE. I will never be able to find anyone again. PLEASE put the old site back on to stay. Wilma Hawkins

Problems with new Find A Grave site

As have many others, I have encountered very annoying problems with the new Find A Grave site: I have discovered that if a person is linked to an incorrect spouse, it is now impossible to delete the link to the incorrect spouse and replace the incorrect spouse with the correct spouse I have further discovered that if any edits at all are pending, it is now impossible to submit additional edits until the edits that are pending have been processed. I agree that the new Find A Grave site is a fiasco! I do not think that I will be using Find A Grave as much as I have been for years anymore, and I will certainly no longer refer people to Find A Grave like I once did.

It IS possible to submit additional edits just not on the SAME ITEM. If you submitted an edit for one of the Name fields, no one else will be able to submit another Name edit until yours is processed but they (or you) can submit edits for the Dates, Inscription, Plot and Relationship links (again, as long as there is no pending edit for that field).

This does not include anything submitted on the "Suggest other corrections" option. These are NO different than on the old site. It is possible to correct a spousal link.

You just have to do it from the memorial that it was made on. If that was a dupe that has been merged, you write to Find A Grave's "edit" address and request the link be removed.

Some have spread sheets and do nothing, but maybe half name with no dates... They wait around like vultures in a masquerade party waiting for someone else to enter their hard search work and then confiscate their info from the worker Bee.

These thieves have the gall to yell duplicate after they have copied all the info to their own memorial from the new memorial with tons of info. Pretty low !

Many of us feel exactly the same way. I don't know who is running the show at FAG but I am sure they don't do genealogy.

It would be interesting to know just how many in the 40-49, 50-69, 70-79, 80-89, 90 -100 use FAG. All the older ones I know DO NOT LIKE the new FAG.

The old one was easy to use. An 86 year old.

Find A Grave - What a horrible change!

This used to be a very wonderul place to find lost ones, memorials, gravesites. I found some great information a few years ago and now...nothing. Just a push to pay for some service. What a shame this was sold and ruined. I looked for some ifou d before and nothing. Then i searched for my grandfather...nothing. Then i searched for my grandmother...nothing. My other grandfather (that was there in the past)...nothing. Then my mom and instead of her marker thwre is now a picture i never authorized to be used! Horrible....just horrible. Then the slow and poor response from the site itself is a joke. It took 5 minutes to be able to enter a forst name! Then an additional 5 minutes for the second name. And for nothing. I miss the old site, with the cemetary info, no ads and no comstant pestering for money by withholding money.

Find A Grave - "NEW SITE" is a disaster

The new site is Find A Grave's GRAVE, they just killed it . I can't believe a sane person designed this mess. The quick submit seems to be gone, along with about every thing else that was user friendly. Trying to contribute on here is about impossible now (unless you have about 1 memorial to patiently do in an hour's time) It is definitely not user friendly, and seems to be geared more for the occasional person who just wants to go on and look at one memorial and get off. Those who contribute are left out in the cold. Wish some one else would start a new friendly user site and dump this mess. Cry

As a workaround I have taken to opening several tabs from the 'add a name to this cemetery' link, according to the number of names on the gravestone. I fill them out and click submit one after the other, so the assigned numbers remain fairly close together.

Then I make whatever relationship links are evident. Somehow I have a feeling this will not work too well for people entering information from a phone or any device with a small monitor. At times I have upwards of a dozen tabs open at once and it gets too crowded for comfort. But if I remember correctly, Quick Submit had no option to link peoples' pages before they were submitted either.

I'm guessing they could make a form like a family group sheet, but it might be too complex for some people to deal with.

Considering that the new format puts up a box that asks if you are re-submitting someone with a similar name before the entry is actually made, things are fairly aggravating. I can see why they did it - if you stay long enough, eventually you will create a duplicate even if you didn't mean to.

Family links could never be made from a creation screen (quick submit, family & friends, etc.) and will never be able to be made from one because the memorial being created doesn't have a number until the SAVE button is pushed. There's no way to create the reciprocal link (spouse to new memorial, parent to new memorial, etc.) until a memorial number is assigned.

Assigning a memorial number when the creation screen is opened isn't logical because that would result in many "blank" memorials when people close out of the screen or change their minds. I've never seen a database that assigned a record number until the record was saved.

Stop lying. Quick Submit is not "still there".

The option to add another memorial to the same cemetery was not exclusive to the Quick Submit as it appeared after memorial created using the complete form. There is NO equivalent to Quick Submit on the new site: there were only 13 fields on Quick Submit (the "bare bones info"), the month was entered as numerals, there was no need to tab thru location fields or scroll down the page to get to the plot field.

Why shouldn't the owners of the site turn it into their idea of what it should be? If you buy a house, you get to decide how to decorate.

If the previous owners were your parents, your siblings may object to your choices because they want the house to stay the same as they always knew it but it's not their house. It's yours. Your siblings are guests and their choice is simple: accept your decorating or not visit.

We are "guests" of Find A Grave. As guests, we have 2 options: accept the re-decorating or not visit.
