I find it appalling that they could walk up to someones grave without permission and take a picture of it and put online for all to see. Immediate family know where their loved ones are buried, so what do you need a website like this for. This is an invasion of...

These people actually have the audacity to go someone’s gravesite, a person they don’t even know and violate their privacy by taking a picture of it and putting it up on a website. They did the same thing to my grandmothers resting place.

Never got our permission, just did it anyway.

We were horrified to see it online. We did not want certain family members to find her grave in fear of them doing something to her grave and these *** put it out there for everyone to see.

Certain volunteers refuse to input accurate data

I submitted a correction of the place that a person died and was declined, I again submitted the correct information and was declined again with, I dont leave them in the hospitals, however, that is where the person died, Salisbury, not Rosetto, that is where he lived but not where he died...This is unacceptable, it creates mis-information...Regardless of how one feels, they should input correct information...Volunteers should be required to follow rules of accurate data input...

User's recommendation: File complaint to get problems resolved.

They did the same thing to my family without our permission. We are not a member of this website so how can they just walk up to a persons headstone and put it online.

Something needs to be done about this. I feel I should seek legal action in this matter.

Find A Grave - 502 Bad Gateway
I have been trying to get into the findagrave.com website for an hour now, so I can see a family member's memorial. All I get is 502 Bad Gateway! What's going on with findagrave.com. Normally this is an awesome website to find information about family members; leave flowers and a message for a loved one; or even create a new memorial for a recently lost loved one. Did the website get deleted?

Rebuttal to Memory Keeper #4723****

memory keeper 4723**** messaged me stating i needed to make better photographs... I take offense to this as I have never received a complaint in the past.. MK 4723**** provided no way to contact her .... I would have gladly returned to the grave and re-photographed... Please contact her about this matter... I considered the message rude...

First off you need to back up and look at the whole picture. Things do not always go your way.

This site is a great site for folks who are interested in geneology which you do not see to be inclined that way. If you are a member, use the edit button to delete incorrect link and have your mother transferred to you.

Also you need to read the rules of the site before you start slamming the best thing that has happened to genealogy for free. No one is perfect, not even you.

To ask how to put grave site and pictures on your web site , this is a very difficut process to do. no one can understand your system.

how do you put information on your site? When I put location of grave site it rejects the location The location is in the woods with other graves dated in the early 1800's Send me instruction about *** to put this on your site. lwrspirax@***.com
