Jane Rousseau
I also received an email from Jane Rousseau on July 18th. 2015 When I clicked on it, it took me to my messages, but there was nothing there!

Appreciate people sharing this information on receiving an email from her. It appears she may be a fraud or for some reason
Find a Grave may have deleted the message..

Jane Rousseau... good thing
I too received a msg from this person, in turn I ended up browsing the website, clicking on the 'photo request' area and I will be fulfilling some requests in my area! So, a happy ending on my part.

Jane Rousseau Email
I received an email from Jane Rousseau on July 18th. When I clicked on it, it took me to my messages, but there was nothing there! Looks like Find A Grave deleted it and is on top of the situation. THANK YOU! :)
Glad to find out she is a fraud.

Jane Rousseau
I TOO received a message from Find a Grave that I had received a message from a Jane Rousseau. Couldn't figure out for the LIFE of me why I couldn't find her message on my page though. Decided to do a search for her name on the internet and came across your posting. Thank you for the information! I really appreciate it when people share information.

Jane Rousseau #48797798
Jane was a member at least for one day. I have researched this person and discovered that her sole purpose on findagrave was to market herself as a researcher for pay. Apparently when findagrave discovered this her account was closed which also delete all messages she had left on findagrave. But did not delete the emails that were already sent. Thanks findagrave for uncovering her plot so quickly.

this is a link to googles cache page of her account. Problem is she is still out there so beware and do not click on any of her messages.

I received her message today the 21st that she sent on the 19th. I do not know why there was a delay in receiving her message. Unless she is spoofing findagrave to accomplish her goal.

She is committing fraud and needs to be reported to the authorities.

I have tried to edit my profile, but keep getting the message that my email address is listed as belonging to someone else. Suggestions?

I also received a email from Jane Rousseau. When I went to read the message there was nothing there.

I too received an email from a Jane Rousseau from Find-a-Grave, asking me to click on the link that supposedly held information for me; however, the email also stated that I needed to be logged in to find-a-grave BEFORE clicking on the link in the email. when I signed in I went to my messages and they are indeed was a message from Jane. There was a number one in parentheses and when I clicked on it there was nothing there. Again I click the link inside that said refresh and blowing behold the one in parentheses disappeared. What that tells me is that it did indeed come from this website from Jane. But the message was not there so what that indicates to me is that someone from this website sent it out not a spammer. Oh I could suppose here logically is that this website once people who haven't logged in for a while to login to see if there still active or to bring them back to the site to remind them about it if they haven't been active. I would fit into this category, because on my profile is stated I have been active in one year and three months, and perhaps this website wants people to come back to the website they lie dormant. There is no spammer or hacker in the world who can hack into someone's website on find a grave, send messages from it, and then delete them. This would only happen if it were on a spoof site! My preference is indicated that I maybe email if someone had information from me, and perhaps find a grave knew they couldn't send me SPAM by saying hey where you been for one year and three months, so they lowered me in a dated me pretending there was some valuable information waiting for me, that mysteriously disappeared when I logged in. I am highly annoyed that website will use a tactics such as telling the person they have valuable information for for them when in fact they don't, just to get them to log into the website for it to become active. The reason why you all should know it was not a spammer or hacker, should you be told that, is because when you log into the real website, you had a message waiting! And the message was deleted by someone from find a grave before you got there, but the number one was still there when you loged in. The only thing the hacker can do is either Lure you to a fake website, which is not happening, or when you logged in to find a grave, there would have been zero messages waiting because the real find a grave never mailed you anything, only the hacker would have, and this was not the case at all. I think the best find a grave can hope for is to say that was a computer glitch that sent out messages to several members erroneously, and blame it on a machine. The lack of response I find a grave tells me this is in what went down either.

Missing Message.....
I too had received a notification that a message was waiting for me from a "Jane Rousseau", and upon checking my messages, nothing was there.

Any idea if this is some sort of hacking / scam email thing going on??? Thank you! Tina Mc

"Jane Rousseau"
I also received email that "Jane Rousseau" had left a message on 7/19/2015. There was no message. This may be an indication that findagrave contributors are now being targeted. Please pass this on to the administration. Thank you.

Russ I am not sure if you know or not but Edmund Dodge has passed away. He was a member of Find A Grave but I do not know his member number. Please view his obit @

A memorial has been created for him which is # 149138847. Can you locate his page and add him as a fallen graver?

Thank you,

Cynthia Kaley

Is Cynthia Kaley still active on Find a Grave?

I understand from her profile/bio that she was undergoing medical treatment.

I see you and Cynthia are "friends" on Find a Grave, and I thought perhaps you would know if she was well enough to attend to some inquiries I have made regarding Mona A. (Markley) Duke's Find a Grave page.

Mona was married to one of our family members, Alderic Bourbeau, and we would love to see a biography for Mona added to her Find a Grave page. (I recently decided to sponsor Mona's page, to remove those pesky advertisements!)

I am deeply sympathetic to Mrs. Kaley, and her health issues, and wish her the very best

As you are a "veteran" of Find a Grave, perhaps you can suggest how I might move forward regarding this.

Thank you for your help,


Tim Jennings, and The Bourbeau Family

Chestnut Level Cemetery
You are awesome. Thanks for adding "New" and "Old" in front of the names for the two separate Chestnut Level Cemeteries. I have been trying to straighten out the ones that have been placed in the Old cemetery. This will help my efforts.

Thanks again,

Undating cemetery percentage count
Hi Russ,
As a professional researcher, I use findagrave daily. I have now decided to occasionally go out to smaller cemeteries and ensure they are photographed. I did the Spear Cem. (Reading, Vt.) and realized a third of the stones were missed. I tried the newly downloaded app on my phone and captured the rest. I wanted to update the percentage photographed to 100%, but could not do it. That is an important statistic for me when researching.
A second one for New England (likely the whole northeast), can a search be added to identify all cemeteries within a town. The county search is not very helpful for detailed research.
Thanks for your help!

my account
Hi. I've been a member for >4yrs and tried to access the forums to see how to submit corrections to cemetery information. Although I've never logged out the forum page required login. I tried to use the credentials I set up initially and they don't work. I tried to use the 'forgot my password' button and message said my email was not in account. My profile page confirms the address I entered. Now what? Would greatly appreciate assistance getting this straightened out. Thanks!

Don't know where to turn

It is very hard on your site to beable to respond, talk or communicate with anyone to right a wrong.
I received the below automated email:
This is an automated email letting you know that your recent edit for the William Carr McNamara (1900 - 1985) Find A Grave memorial has been declined.
General reason: Not accurate - Their data applies to a different memorial.

The problem is that the info I gave was correct. This is my Gerandfather and Great Grandfather.
# 147965107 WE Whitehead is the father to #132211424 William Carr McNamara my grandfather.Read the obit it mentions a son Willie. He is the biological son of WE Whitehead No to Mr McNamara. Please Correct this.Thank you!!
