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.

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.

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.

Terrible online community. Terrible admin.

Was a member for over 10 years. Has contributed more than 6000 memorials. At first I felt good about what I was doing but after a few nasty messages I gave up and quit contributing. A couple years later I decided to try it again. I enjoyed what I was doing and felt like I was helping people (for awhile). Then I discovered how nasty many of the other members are. And how worthless the administration is. If you want to be belittled. Told off. Argued with. Reported for any slight other members feel you committed (you'll then receive an email from admin telling you you've been reported, which means you are automatically guilty, and other penalties may occur). This site is nothing but a haven for cyber bullies.

User's recommendation: Don't do it.

My mom has done Find A Grave since inception traveling around our county taking pictures and posting. She received a book from a family asking her to post their info.

She also takes requests to go find graves. She passes on admin rights to any one who asks.

She has been bullied on Find A Grave for over a year now. A person with 4 identities somehow knows every time she makes an entry and then duplicates her entry and asks for a merge and reports.

6000 memorials is excessive. Nobody creates that much volume and has any feeling for what they do.

FindAGrave encourages such compulsive behavior. If u cannot break free u need help.

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.
