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...

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.

I have been using FAG for over 10 years. I put notes on there and used the lineage to find ancestors. Your program changes have taken a great resource tool and made it useless. Now you take away the ability to use the original version.Please put that back in the...

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.

The old site was much more user-friendly than this new piece of junk is. I just tried to fulfill a picture request in the Hayden Cemetery, in Jennings County, Indiana USA, for a picture of MY SISTER'S stone, but the website kept redirecting me to another cemetery, I...

Did you report the problem to Find A Grave? Not sure what you think this site can do about it since it isn't affiliated with Find A Grave.

This new Find-A-Grave site is a disgusting mess, with the info. all over the place. The format is terrible, definitely not as legible as the old site. You have to move all over the page to possibly find what you might be looking for. I really fail to see, how that this...

On all of the Urton gravesites for Middletown Historical Cemetery, Middletown, Jefferson Co., KY, FindAGrave has this prompt "Memorial has been Removed". But that is not so. And I want that prompt removed promptly. If you click on Cemetery, enter Middletown Historical...

I cannot sign into Find A Grave. I signed into the Old one and was able to add my brother and sister. It added their names and information. The very same day, I tried the new Find A Grave, but I could not get in with my password. I changed it, but I still can't get in....

Did you type the username and password right? It's like trying to turn on the tv when it's unplugged.

I agree. I loved the old site.

Their reason for updating was bandwith, but anyone who knows how the internet works understands that all you have to do is increase your hosting bandwith package. I can rarely sign into the new site, or on many occasions like today it says login but goes absolutely nowhere!! Yet I can see all of my memorials, but not edit them because go figure, I am not signed in.. the worst, I can't add siblings now because I can't find the link.

I have taken to just documenting my own family. Besides, with all of the drama on FAG (like, hey that's my grave I made it first, or you made a duplicate take it down) it is really childish. I feel like this... if I am within 4 generations and you are a stranger, you can take your's down.

Thanks for the work you did, but you don't know them, you have no emotional ties and thus should have some respect.

We are all here to remember our families or HELP people find theirs. If contributors can't remember what the primary goal is they shouldn't be doing it.

It wasn't working great behind the scenes. Are you using the same operating system you had 20 years ago?

That's the equivalent of what was going on behind the scenes. The "code" was out of date. At some point in time, it would have crashed big time and the site would have been off-line until they got it reprogrammed with modern technology.

They've been working on this programming for over 3 years. did you want the site to go away for 3 years?
