For over 20 years I hunted for my great grandmother's grave. I found someone who searched for

graves as a hobby and through Findagrave he found my grandmother's grave. There was no death

certificate and no one knew where she was buried. Out in West Texas, in a very small cemetery, near

a ranch where some of her family lived she was buried in 1906 with just a small concrete marker.

There was a picture of this marker on find a grave with only the last name that was almost washed

away. I want to thank the person who made those pictures and posted them. The cemetery care-

takers did not know that grave was there. The historian for that little community did not know it was

there and she had been forgotten and lost all these years. My family has provided a very nice monument for her.

I can not understand all the negative comments that have been posted on this site about

find a grave and some right nasty ones. Many people would be lost forever if they didn't provide

this service for free and after all our ancestors are gone forever and we should be happy that our

friends can find those that they didn't know were gone and maybe someday visit those graves that

a lot of people forget once they are buried.

I don't understand a lot of the anger at F.A.G.I have found dozens of family members with ***, and I give more credit to birth and death dates from gravestones than other sources. I visited a family member's grave this morning and I'm sure I walked over many people's graves. I admit I feel funny doing that, but I am respectful.

BTW, when I tried Billions of Graves, my anti-virus gave a warning

Never had a problem with virus warnings on BillionGraves and I use it hundreds of times a day. Had so many virus, malware, crapware, etc.

warnings from FindAGrave flashy ads I installed an ad blocker. Glad BillionGraves does not have flashing ads. Waiting for Ancestry to go 100% Ancestry ads only on FindAGrave.

How long before Diehard gets sued for cyber-bullying? She has no problem being faq police and ignoring those faqs she does not want to follow.

@Anita: No one sent me here, least of all Jim Tipton. But more importantly, you do not know that Mr.

Tipton is "cool with" cruelty. You show your true colors every time you post such a lie.

If you know someone who is suicidal, please seek medical/psychiatric help for them! Posting on this or any other site is not helping them!

@Read the FAQs

Jackie Wilson Goddard AKA Read the FAQS... Do you know how many of your victims in which you spend so much of your free time stalking and bullying are diagnosed with depression?

You really should try to find that out before you cyberstalk and bully people over virtual memorials. All it will take is for you to terrorize one depressed person to push them over the edge. If your virtual memorials are more important than the human beings you are stalking harassing and bullying I suggest you get some help.... If you do not like using a website with out rules I suggest you find a new website to use.

This one clearly spins you off your rational rocker.

Yes its a good thing you praised the sight claudia because read the faqs is a personal findagrave cyber stalker bully. She is sent here by Jim Tipton.

Had you had any constructive criticism you and your family would have ended up on read the faqs hit list and in bully blogs.

Jim tipton bans people for using chalk on headstones in cemeteries but he is cool with acts of cruelty that increase suicide;which in turns boosts his numbers in his database. I believe that will also contribute to his income as well.

find a grave so called faq's only apply to some members...see dennis deel's copyrighted photos added...see valencia that has no cemetery location for the majority of her memorials also note that she does not allow grave stone photos added; even when they are added per volunteer photo request. THE FACT IS FIND A GRAVE IS STEALING FROM OBITUARIES THAT FAMILY PAYS FOR AND PROFITING FROM GRAVESTONES THAT FAMILY PAYS FOR! FIND A GRAVE PROVIDES NO WORTHY SERVICES BUT PROFITS FROM THE DEATHS OF OTHERS!

So happy for you, Claudia! That is what the site is all about.

Unfortunately, the people who commented below and all those others who make negative comments about the site are ones who could not follow the rules and found themselves banned from Find A Grave. They are a minority although a very vocal one (and they use multiple personas to try to make people believe there are more of them).

You are the one using multiple personas. Amazing at how people like you can ignore the rules and get away with it because you are best friends with an admin. Rest well with the foreknowledge your actions do more to get findagrave in hot water than anything else.

THE ADMINISTRATION LOVES TO DELETE MEMBERS BUT LEAVE THEIR MEMORIALS AND PHOTOS! POOR JOEL FARRINGER HAD HIS ACCOUNT DELETED BUT THE MEMORIALS HE CREATED & SPONSORED FOR HIS WIFE, HIS SON & HIMSELF ALL REMAIN BUT HE WHO PAID FOR THE SPONSORSHIPS & PROVIED THE PHOTOS HAS HAD IS ACCOUNT DELETED.

SEE MEMORIALS #8270262, 8270193 & 66043039.

HE IS JUST ONE OF MANY VICTIMS OF FIND A GRAVE ADMINISTRATION DELETING MEMBERS BUT KEEPING THEIR MONEY AND PHOTOS.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN VICTIMIZED BY FIND A GRAVE ADMINISTRATION & ITS MEMBERS REPORT IT TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU, LETS GET THE SITE SHUT DOWN!

Oh yea lady good for you that you found an ancestor they beat the *** out of volunteers wasting their time and giving your work away to other people they abuse volunteering wasting hundreds of hours of volunteers time. They stalk you they talk about your deceased child in hate blogs and link your facebook accounts to hate blogs exposing children and vulnerable adults to public attack

Yes, findagrave can be a wonderful site for finding about your ancestors and where they are buried. I've found many memorials as well as met MANY wonderful people on findagrave.

The problem is if you become a member and start to do memorials. It can be a wonderful experience, but avoid commenting on the forums at all costs! There are some vicious people there who will do anything to destroy your work if you rub them the wrong way.

So I hope you enjoy findagrave as much as possible. don't get sucked into the politics that go on behind the scenes in the forums, and you will continue to have a wonderful experience.

Some volunteers give personal email out on their profile page in findagrave. If they do, you can thank them directly without being a member of findagrave. Also note that you can sign up in findagrave, and never use the forums. The forums require a second userid. Just realize it is like anything in life involving a group of people. You can have a wonderful time with any group of people, but all it takes is a few people to ruin it.

So enjoy findagrave as much as you can!
