Hi all, I hate finding Find a grave members that have thousands of memories but only list the minimum amount of information,
I have found an old lady that is on oxazine 24 hours a day that has 80, 000 memorials and will not transfer their memorials to me.
there needs to be a rule that you can't just add the date of birth & the date of death & place of burial... Barbara Richardson Smith [protected]
When I find people like her I will not help them to add all the information needed. Check me out Public Name Dennis J Friedman, ID [protected]
the list below is the number of people I have checked
[protected], [protected], [protected]. No, I am not related but I am doing research for the family or my girlfriend
I along with my mom, my aunt and a second cousin had our accounts deactivated from Find A Grave all because of two people who claimed to be relatives that weren't, Mary E. Payne aka Mary E. P Find A Grave # [protected] and Roni McFadden aka Bluejayln # [protected]. They were constantly posting things on our immediate family memorials that weren't true. Each time, one of us in the family would politely attempt to correct them on something that they had posted that was incorrect and each time, they would get very nasty and just posted more and more untrue things on purpose. All of us filed several complaints (with proof) to Find A Grave without anything ever being done. Not one thing. And now each one of us have had our accounts closed down for what Find A Grave said was harassment without any proof (because there was none or if something was submitted by one of these two, nothing was done to make sure that they were true). No one in our family that was on Find A Grave has never been anything but nice to these two. The only time that I got a little heated was in a complaint due to Mary E. Payne stealing my photographs that I posted on Find A Grave and then she filed a complaint against me to Find A Grave and accused me of of stealing Her Photo's. This Whole Find A Grave is VERY Unprofessional and one Can Not Go By Anything that is posted on the memorials because if this happened to us, then there are other memorials out there that have incorrect information on them
I have reason to believe that Find A Grave has deleted one of my virtual flowers along with its comments. I don't understand why. This hasn't happened before (as far as I know) and I would like to at least get an answer as to whether or not my assumption is valid. Plus I just would like to know what happened out of pure and sheer curiosity. The memorial in question is for a famous person. Memorial #1460
I am wondering how to connect to an old Findagrave.com account?
I would to a like to add an old obituary to mt existing Findagrave account. I lost all of my login information when I became sick and ended up in a hospital. My old landlady told me that I could not come back to the place I was renting from last year (2018).
I lost all of my login information plus other stuff.
Lastly; This is not a complaint. I am in need of some assistance.
my old address was: 14045 Lynmark St, Lamirada, CA 90638
Below is a link to the memorial that I would like transferred to my current site:
My Great Grandfather Thomas D Murphy died on 13 December 1925. Thomas died of Hemiplegia Arteriosclerosis due to Bronchial Pneumonia. Thomas and Delia are buried in Mt. Benedict Cemetery, Roslindale, MA. He is buried with his wife Delia, Frederick J (my Grandfather) and various other members of family in Mount Benedict Cemetery, I think this error prevents Ancestry and other data banks to provide educated hints based on the data I have. Please resolve this issue for me. I would be so grateful
I typed out an email to findagrave and ads covered the submit button so I couldn't send it - makes me think findagrave is very dodgy! Anyway I wanted to inform findagrave that someone has left a very derogatory comment on a murder victim's page. The murder victim is Charmaine Marie Byerly Sabrah - the comment is from Fayez Sabrah - obviously he or she had to join findagrave to leave that comment - that comment should be removed - I don't want to join findagrave but should be able to inform you of inappropriate comments on a page. I am in no way related to the victim or her family. I just don't like seeing that happen to someone who can't defend herself. -Eileen Delaney
I've only been a member for 5 days. The first thing I wanted to do was find my family members, see if there were photos and leave some flowers.
When I found family with no photos I put in a request for some. Well... Jennifer peterson, id [protected] responded by sending me a pornographic video link!! Wtf obviously this response was completely unexpected but I have to say i'm not surprised. Sooooo many deplorable, disgusting, immoral degenerates! This is exactly why I do not interact with people socially online!
Hey jennifer! A little advice. You should probably work on yourself, do some soul searching and at least try to be a decent human being before its youre grave registered on this site!!!
I have found this site to be very very poor, I had created an account and memorials for loved ones I wished remembered. After a while, behaviour from members on the site concerned and worried me, as some members were at times rude or aggressive towards me and each other for no apparent reason. I decided to remove my memorials and account which I proceeded to do and be done with the site and leave the mad hatters to it as I have no time for these ego trips.
Only to discover to my horror having been told weeks later, Find a Grave had re-instated some of my memorials and given their ownership to complete strangers who had been rude / aggressive towards me but kept my bio's AND photographs. I have contacted the site multiple times and been ignored, I think its time Google stopped endorsing them on its search engine for genealogy as it falls far below the mark on that too. I have seen some people on there with good intensions who want to remember loved ones and record them but others who seem well almost power mad? which is odd to me personally.
I would finally add, that the government in the companies native US needs to take some action; against this madness. I am horrified and hurt my memorials were not able to be permanently deleted at my request but could be re-instated after being removed, at the request of online trolls, who did not even know them. Utterly appalling so do not let this happen to you or waste your time on this site! you won't be treated with respect. I sponsored many memorials of myself and other people and do not care about not getting the money back, it really does not matter. What does, is the double standard of listening to one person who has the admin ear's and ignoring the legitimate family member / creator / often sponsor of the memorial itself. I truly wish I had never ever seen this site. It is true what other people have said, the living have feelings and should be respected. I would also say to all those who so happily endorse the site and rebuff any criticism what so ever, if your loved ones memorials were taken, or created and things added/taken away or written that were not true or downright nasty I am sure 110% you would not be happy. Genealogy or not, were humans and we have emotion, to you it may just be a grave but to other people its the last expression of love to someone or do you just think there empty meaningless lumps of stone? honestly people enough is enough.
There is a person named SILE, going through all the memorials on find a grave. THE person seems to think, that, in uploading all the various cemeteries online to find a grave..thats all that has to be done. HOWEVER, in doing that, you can submit the dead person's name, and it will still come up no one exists buried there UNTIL the cemetery updates their website, files, pages, records including the dead person's name. THE Obits I have had in hand, stating where folks are buried..yet, no matter what or when I reinvestigate, that persons name still comes up as not buried at such and such cemetery. UNTIL the cemetery records/files etc are updated, completely, properly..these folks will not exist..even though the cemetery is now online. I thought, creating a memorial, with the person's obits listed on it..would be helpful for folks to at least locate their loved ones, and take it from there. BUT, this person SILE on find a grave, seems to be harassing me today..on every stinking memorial I have created to the point..I deleted them all but 3..and this person SILE is still harassing me. Suggest find a grave put a muzzle on the person and hog tie their fingers.
You have obituary and family completely wrong. I don't appreciate it. You all should not be allowed to...
Find A Grave technically supposed to be a site where people can remember their departed without a lot of...
On August 15, 2017, I previewed the "new" Find a Grave and I am very dismayed. A look at my father's memorial...
Horrible site - mostly graveyard vampyres (bored to death housewives with nothing better to do than to see how many graveyard memorials they can make if they know the deceased or not.) Many times these individuals use inaccurate date & swipe copyrighted family photos from other sites. Usually when families complain it falls on deaf ears. Find A Grave is an invasion of privacy. Families have the right to mourn their departed without any grief from the find a grave team.
Find A Grave for the most part is assorted photos of graves with bios made by bored housewives with usually no tie to the family. Its sort of a game - who can make the most memorials. Most of the info is inaccurate. In my particular case they took my grandparents names mixed them up with some1 else who was a distant cousin and then created the memorial. To make matters worse ancestry.com now owns find a grave. So these find a grave trolls got into family pages, swiped family photos and added them to their page. Now these trolls make make the claim family tree material is public record and they have a right to access it. That may be true. But private family photos are not public domain,
I discovered Find A Grave a short while ago when doing research on relative, Lt. Francis G. Turton who was a...
When you go more on findagrave even you would also wish to suicide. Findagrave are full of dead people and family and freind love/care/support message
those who dont have strong faith, dont go findagrave.
Many people originally not suicide, but when they visit findagrave or funeral sites,
they all suicide and died. Yes findagrave do encourage suicide.
If someone is suicidal, do not visit findagrave.
I got some friends who dont have suicidal thoughts. When they see their family member/friend on findagrave. They all go suicide.
This site steals funeral photos without permissions. Members all compete for number of burial records made by stealing ppl headstones and claim "dead people no longer have any privacy nor rights"
this is very cruel and rude to the family of the dead.
Even if on facebook u must also have to ask permission before you share photo from girls. Not just share or steal. Right?
and some people online in facebook only share, say "facebook is public. When you put photo, i can just share. Facebook not care this kind of thing."
it's people property, people photo, not your photo, and this same issue happen on findagrave
findagrave should delete unauthorized funeral photos pages. Members can even steal people headstone photo by take photo on camera and put even when the deceased really 100% no relation with the creator.
I see that someone else had this situation regarding someone photographing and posting her six-year old...
This site is to be avoided at all costs! There is a lot going on at the findagrave website that the unassuming public doesn't know about. This banning of members for no reason and deleting their memorials without cause will end up costing that website big and the members that are involved in this behavior will be held accountable.
I had a very negative experience with ###. I had been a member for over 9 years. The memorials I entered were mostly family members. One day out of the blue a member named BB started sending me emails about duplicate memorials. Her profile had no photo or bio and stated she had only been a member for 3 years. I checked into the memorials that she claimed were dupes and found that they were NOT dupes so I wrote back and let her know that the information she had must be incorrect. She continued sending emails up to 3 emails every five minutes. Since she was incorrect, I told her to stop harassing me. She did not respond and continued sending the emails.
A couple of days later I was trying to enter a memorial and my account was cancelled. I checked for my memorials and they were all deleted! All my photos and information was gone. I couldn't believe it, and I thought it must be an error. I contacted the admin to try and figure out what was going on. I asked them why I could not log in to my account. I didn't get a response. So I wrote again and asked them why my memorials were deleted. No response. I wrote a third time, asking when my account was going to be restored. No response. That was 8 months ago and I have never gotten a response. I checked the BB members account, and suddenly she's been a member for 9 years. After another couple of months, I checked it again and now it's up to 11 years. She IS the admin. For whatever reason they deleted my account and all my memorials then BB and some other members, probably admin as well, began stealing the information and the photos and posting them as their own. I lost years worth of work, including travel time all over the country and countless hours of research.
After my experience, I began researching the company to see what others were saying and I was completely stunned to find that there are literally hundreds of complaints about these people. Because of their underhanded tactics they have become a joke in the genealogy world. One professor who teaches genealogy courses makes a point of telling his students NOT to trust the information on that site because it is filled with errors and most of it has either been stolen or is in violation of copyright laws. I have also read that ancestry.com is having to repair the damage that ### has done by deleting memorials because they have caused broken links. This is a huge issue for ancestry and makes them look bad, which they do NOT take lightly. They are in the process of disassociating themselves from ### due to their tactics.
Unfortunately, some of the F.A.G. members are not only out of line, but their comments can only lead one to believe that they are inherently evil beings. In reference to deceased family members they post venomous comments that are not only inexcusable but downright mean, nasty and vile.
There's one member that wears a red bowl on her head with a white whirlybird thing on it. Her tagline reads "Go play in the microwave - you pest". I'm completely serious. I realize it's hard to believe that an adult would do something like this but the worst part about it, aside from it being completely inappropriate and cruel, is that she's one of the administrators.
The forums are filled with horrible comments, which are aimed towards insulting and offending members, former members, new members, and people that don't agree with the "core group". They refer to the site as "Jim's playground". They consider the "Frequently Asked Questions" section to be sacred text. Time and time again you'll see them post such caring comments as "go cry somewhere else", people need to learn to "play by the rules", and banished members are "sniveling children".
Keep in mind this is a site that has memorials on it. These memorials represent many deceased friends and family members from all parts of the globe. Most people would assume that the site is supposed to be used to honor the dead and/or as a reference tool for genealogy. However, upon further examination, and after having experienced firsthand the underhanded tactics, obnoxious and inappropriate terminology and language used there, it is painfully obvious that this is just a hideout for a group of overgrown bullies haunting and slashing their way through the pages of this online graveyard.
There is nothing upstanding, caring, considerate, or honorable about the administrators that run this site or their minions that freely admit to trolling page after page looking for errors and problems to "report back" to their leader. There is nothing kind or loving about the way they handle questions, complaints, or opinions. There is nothing dignified at all about these people who control a website that houses memorials of people's loved ones. It's difficult to believe that any human being could be that wicked and ruthless but it's all right there in plain English for the whole world to see. Shame on those people - shame!
Used and abused, added thousands of photos and memorials sponsored 10 memorials when my account was suspended (by a biased administrator)all my hard work remained. Jim Tipton profits from those of use that visit and photograph cemeteries. His administrators play favorites and will favor their friends over other members. My contributions put thousands of dollars in Jim Tipton's pocket and all I got was harrassed, abused and bullied by a administrator and her friends. DO NOT JOIN FIND A GRAVE AND NEVER CONTRIBUTE ANYTHING YOU WILL REGRET IT IF NOT NOW EVENTUALLY!
I have had similar experiences. This site is a dictatorship and it hides behind the guise of helping other...
