GPS inside graveyard directions are incorrect

Set GPS at grave. Walk away from that grave. I want to find that grave from the GPS I just set from the other side of the cemetery and the directions on how to find that grave again using the GPS I set doesnt take me back to that grave. It is way off the mark.

Thousands of errors, adding names to the wrong families

Full of errors; adding memorials to the wrong family. Admins giving memorials to friends and banning long-time contributors. Errors are copied to Ancestry.

I was transfer the wrong memorial I'd. I am related to Elizabeth Schultz id# 10616**** and they transferred me someone else's grave. I am really disappointed with their customer service and attention to detail and the length of time to correct the issue. Sherry

User's recommendation: Have a customer service number that has a findagrave employee working at that can actually help. This email only is to time consuming and clean to difficult to get a acceptable outcome.

Find A Grave - Theft
Someone stole my uncle's profile! I called them and they refuse to cooperate, I see they are doing this to hundreds of ppl. As far as I know on Find a grave, you can't do that. I created, and I also managed 5 profiles all family and I found the persons that stole them...

No I did the originals (profiles) even the pictures they took of him, we were all at the cemetery as well. They took and copied the whole profile however you want to describe it, it is all of my pictures and his information along with all family member pictures , I know no one has the rights to them and yet they are claiming all the profile info.

That was not on an obit only family would know most details. Yes there is ta phone number, hey are under the umbrella office of Ancestery.com I did my homework thank you.

Sexual comment on findgrave page

There seems to be no communication worth having so far. Another company that cant be reached person to person. I am just doing my genealogy this year and I am not going to use Ancestry or find a grave. I wish my ancestors were not on this site. Very unprofessional etc to say the least. John Andersen. My ggg grandfather is Thomas Ellwood Rose and his wife Not turnblower. Trumbower. I wrote Anderson who runs the page n said thanks for what u do. He changed her name this week. Middle school ??

User's recommendation: Now… no way.

I can't log in. It says my " page not found error 404".

After exploring the 'net, I discovered Find A Grave changed operating system requirements without informing consumers ahead or after the change. The customer service line said agents weren't available, and told you to go to customer service online. However, I'm only a "guest "and wasn't allowed in to this section of the site. I'm no longer considered a member. Requesting to get into my own member page is an "error" as I've not updated my software. No hours for customer service were stated.

User's recommendation: If the site works, side it when you can. For now, it's still free. However, where Ancestry.com is part of the network, I would be hesitant to pay their premium prices with the lack of customer service.

In the future, advise customers ahead of major software update needs. In the meantime, I will see if I can access this site at the library. If I can, it won't be as convenient, but will still be somewhat accessible.

Will not remove my name from deceased’s bio

My name listed in bio of deceased person's site without my permission and the manager will not remove it.This person is not my relative and they do not have my permission to put my name as a contributor in the bio. The manager dream Weaver will not respond to dozens of attempts to get them to remove it. Find a grave will not respond either. They are violating the law.

User's recommendation: Stay away from this app!!

I agree. It’s impossible to talk to anyone. They will protect a famous person but not a regular one.

We need to create a law and sue this company! ASAP

Sponsored memorials not allowing 30 pictures

I sponsor memorials for some of my family members. I noticed when I post a picture, it says I can post 30 pictures, not 20, for memorials I sponsor. I'm trying to load more pictures on my ex-husband's memorial and I the website won't let me. Please advise me how I can post the 30 pictures that I am permitted to do. Sandy Lyle FAG ID 4737****

From Find A Grave's Help file: 1. Each contributor can upload a maximum of 5 photos for a memorial.

2. A memorial can have a maximum of 20 photos from all contributors. 3.

The sponsor of a memorial may add an additional 10 photos (for a total of 30 on the memorial). The person who sponsors can only add 15 (the 10 from sponsoring and the original 5).

To correct the wrong name of the person in the photo

The name of the woman in the photo with Devon Hawkins is not his wife, Elizabeth. It is his wife, Florence Hawkins, my mother. I am Mr. Hawkins daughter. Respectfully, Katherine A. (Hawkins) Hogg
