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!!

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

I have spent a lot of time adding my memorials to Find A Grave until they get merged by the same person when she isn't even related to me! The memorials I add are people directly related to me, and she merges them and then manages them, saying that she has accepted...

It sounds like your memorials were duplicates which aren't allowed. Members can only SUGGEST merges.

Find A Grave decides whether or not to accept those suggestions. Their policy is to keep the first memorial in the correct cemetery (or with the correct disposition).

Yours were either created later than the other or yours did not have the correct disposition. These policies are all found in the Help section.

Very Tacky

What ever happened to just calling a cemetery to find out where someone is buried. What gives you the right to take a picture of someones grave and put it online. Thats an invasion of a families privacy. I have a lawyer looking into this. Company was told to take picture down but it is still there. Now you will get a lawyers letter to remove and if not removed you will be sued.

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.
