To actually speak with someone

This phone number is not to actual website find a grave it is the phone number to ancestry.com Not sure exactly who thought this was cute but this is a automated line to Ancestry

User's recommendation: Don’t contact us number in regards to findagrave.com.

Access bio on ancestor

I have tried to talk to someone about how to access the bio about my ancestor George Washington Taylor that says on his find a grave page exists. I have not had the issue resolved and am very frustrated. I have been doing family research for approx nine years and have always found find a grave to have info that I needed, so this is very disappointing to me. If you can help, that would be great!

Two years latet

After two years I finally got find aastaastzs grave to remove my immediate family from their data base. Hosanna.Find a grave is a nightmare. They take photos of deceased family members. Then their experts construct a poor family tree with all sorts of errors and paster the info all over the net. Find a grave sucks bigtime.

An upsetting shakedown scheme

They have listed my uncle's burial place in the wrong cemetery. This would be upsetting enough but to add insult to injury, to even bring this to their attention I would have to pay a membership fee. This is a shakedown.

Loss of all the graves and cemeteries that I had and now cannot be found.

I have been a member of findagrave.com for years before ancestry.com took it over. I forgot my password and my email was no longer useful.,I started a new page with my main info. I was able to at least see the cemeteries that I search for but, today I can't find anything. The search for my family's graves are saying not found. Ancestry.com is a greedy Company and a waste of time.

User's recommendation: Don't use this sight.

Invitation

Contributors act like they are doing the institutions a favour. Were all adults here and clearly aint nobody got time for catering their every whim.

User's recommendation: Be a decent delegator and ‘Get–R–Done!’.

Find a grave sucks

Original review updated by user Mar 13, 2022
I have been banned from Find A Grave for provoking a fight with one of their top contributors who took over the memorials I made for my parents and infant son. The woman refused to turn the memorials back over to me. Furthermore what started out as a memorial turned into a genealogical junkyard after this top contributor got done with it. Most of the research was inaccurate adding 1st cousins with the same name and roughly the same age. Secondly I do not like the idea of strangers poking around in my family tree - especially if the information is wrong. Find a grave support is useless. They take the side of the contributor and I am the one who gets banned for confronting this person.

User's recommendation: Stay away from the site. It will only cause you grief.

Scam: Misleading Info & Invasion of privacy.

Find A Grave - Scam: Misleading Info & Invasion of privacy.
Find A Grave - Scam: Misleading Info & Invasion of privacy.
FindAGrave lures unsuspecting people to the site who have just lost a loved one. FindAGrave entices these individuals to create a "free" online virtual memorial. Once the memorial is created the individuals who created it are banned. Next FindAGrave has one of their major contributors man the Memorial. They in turn copy all personal data, catalogue it, then send it off to their Salt Lake City Headquarters to be used in conjunction with some of their other endeavors - most likely marketing i.e. robo calls in addition misleading sales literature.

User's recommendation: Avoid this site. It will only cause you grief. If you need more proof do a google search FindAGrave complaints.

How does Find A Grave "lure" or "entice" people to create memorials? As to the rest, well, let's just say, it's what comes out of the south end of a bull walking north.

COMPLAINT

My friend Sylvia M.Sharpe 1945-**** was buried in Santa Monica.Someone went to the cemetery,took a picture of the gravesite and posted it online.Who gave permission?I find that is an invasion of privacy and lack of respect for the dead.I confronted the woman who posted it on the phone and she hang up on me.Very suspicious.Is that not illegal?

No one needed permission to photograph the grave or to post said photo online. There cannot be an expectation of privacy for something that is in public view.

Deleting messages

This site has removed me over things that I didn't post. An angry exrelative of my deceased friend has been doing all of this.
