I was recently doing some research on my deceased father and found a picture of his headstone and his information on this site, Findagrave.com. After doing more research and looking into it, I realized that the person who posted it and made a "memorial" for my father...

I joined the website because I was looking for my relatives that passed away. Some of them I didn't know where they were buried before I joined.

Now, I know where most of them are, even my ancestors. It started out as one thing and now I help others find their relatives and ancestors. As for the ads, it's how websites make money. It has nothing to do with your family or staining your family's name.

I also make no money on the memorials I have added or manage. I would turn it down if I was offered. Most of the members are on the website because they love history, including myself. If a person wants a profile I manage because they are related to that said person.

I have no issue handing it over to them. People have done the same for me. That being said, there are a few on the website who don't care for history and have no respect for the goals of the website of helping others and preserving history. It is a numbers game to them and they should be banned immediately!

One idiot you ran into shouldn't sully the websites good nature. Email the admins and tell them that this person has false information and that you want it changed.

There is no reason why it should be deleted because you don't care for preserving history. Stop being selfish.

Wait a minute! I didn't read your entire post b/c you mentioned you asked for a refund for "sponsoring" memorials.

This information that you've been posting is not yours to decide to post and the website doesn't "own" the information so you shouldn't be giving them money for anything.

I think people are right though the site should be sued for fraud but not for the reasons the contributors think. You've all been used.

Death records are not a matter of public record, and it is not mandatory for a public death notice to be published anywhere. And you can't just post the information anywhere you want, and if you are posting memorials for graves that are less than 75 years old than you are most likely giving fraudsters the information they want.

Think about what you use to answer security questions.

This information was not for you or anyone else on that site to decide to take and post anywhere you want. You should all be charged with crimes.

What made you believe this was appropriate.

Findagrave has recently (2014) been bought out by ancestry.com. There will be more for-profit changes to come. The intent of the site was to document every grave in the world for public consumption. The ethics of that quest are much debated, no respect for the dead or...

I personally have established memorials of my family members so that they are not forgotten. I posted pictures of the people if available for the benefit of our future family members who might be interested in their past heritage. I have met only nice people on this site, so I haven't a clue what any of you are talking about when you condemn the site.

They delete family bios or cut them short, they deleted half my flowers that i choose from. They pick and choose who can frame a picture and who can't. The new system is insulting and invasive and sucks. I am pissed and i don't like this. Working so hard on memorials...

I've been on the site a good number of years and have not experienced these problems. Perhaps your memorials were duplicates that have been merged into the originals.

I SHOUT IN ALL CAPS AT PEOPLE ALL THE TIME BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE A VALID ARGUMENT AND I KNOW IT. SOMETIMES WHEN I YELL LIKE THIS PEOPLE RUN AWAY AND I FEEL LIKE I WON, BUT REALLY I JUST GO HOME AND CUT MYSELF. :cry :cry :cry :cry :cry :cry

Find-A-Grave doesn't do anything wrong. And that's why you're on here ***; because you know there's nothing wrong going on here. Just something that you don't like. And you know there's nothing you can do about something you simply do not like. Because you are poor and powerless. You *** peon. Kill yourself.

How do you know who your *** granny knew and did not know? I bet she fuked the whole town 3x over; that stank *** I'll go *** on her grave right now and there's nothing you can do about it.

You just don't get it. Nobody is required to respect anything you believe in. Ever. They might have to tolerate you, but they don't have to do things the way you want just because you're old dead granny's panties are in a twist.

Same for me.....I've been ignored by Findagrave for the last month. I've tried to have duplicate memorials removed, memorial inaccuracies corrected, and I've re-submitted a cemetery gate photo numerous times.....and absolutely NO RESPONSE! Come on Ancestry......you're letting your new acquistion go to pot!

It is bad business for a website to profit from the gravestones, plots and obituaries that family provided and paid for through cemeteries, funeral homes and newspapers. The f.a.g.

sites members are notorious for stealing pictures of family members and copying obituaries.

All violations of copyrights. They have done this with the victims of Sandy Hook and Boston bombing victims.
