I had been a member for about 7 years and had submitted almost 1,000 memorials.These were mostly close family members who I did not want somebody else to claim, despite my having serious doubts about the integrity of the website.

First, it was privately owned, by one individual, not a public trust. Then, not surprisingly, it was sold out for a profit (unreported and unknown) to Ancestry. The promise was made was that it would remain free. Fast forward to a couple years later.

It is still "free" as long as the user community continues to contribute hundreds of thousands of hours submitting free content. But they have now re-programmed the site to include exorbitant, outrageous amounts of advertising. It is so bad, the website has become unusable. Bloated and sucks up CPU resources bad it chokes the computer.

My contribution was modest compared to some who have uploaded literally hundreds of thousands of gravesites.

I will do no more.I home in the future there is an alternative with integrity to the genealogical community.

Review about: Find A Grave Website.

Reason of review: Not as described.

Monetary Loss: $100000.

Preferred solution: Go back to old site, remove bloated advertising.

I liked: Old, Old pre-ancestry fag.

I didn't like: New and improved website with bloated advertising.

all the advertising sucks! Everyone liked the old website much better than the new- It was easier to read and more compact on the page, rather than it is now which runs hog wild all other the network! The old cream color was better too !


i couldnt agree more, what was once a great personal memorial site for loved ones now has become a profit monster... they turned it into a grave/obit chasing contest where hundreds of thousans of obits are posted to get numbers, the graves are no longer seen as people only as numbers.. its pitiful


Here we go again, more complaining about the advertising.Seems like nobody bothers to read the previous 1000 posts on this exact thing.

If a website, any website, allows so much of it that it becomes unbearable, what can you do?

As has been said ad infinitum: get an ad blocker.Costs nothing and you never have to see one again unless you want to.
