Am not sure who to contact as I can find nothing where I can .
On my find a grave no.,47253075., where I can receive messages and ect typing in this no., they are not always getting ahold of me... but that of
the grave of Alice M. Hill... who also is seen with this same no., 47253075.

Aunt Dud
I would prefer to no longer receive any messages for Aunt Dud 48806913. I have been a Find A Grave Contributor for over 12 years and feel this person should be warned about her messages.

Messages on Find A Grave
Hi there - I received a notice that I had a new Find A Grave message, and when I click the link I only see one message (from last year), but there is a "2" next to messages; is there something I need to do to see the new message?

Thank you,

Ireland Cemeteries
I tried to add a new cemetery in Ireland...Moneydig Presbyterian Church
Graveyard, Northern Ireland
County Londonderry
Parish of Desertoghill
I believe the County is now County Derry...but there is no county Derry or Londonderry on the dropdown to add it :( I'd like to add my 4th gr grandparents so I can link them to my 3rd great grandparents in the US but there is no way to add the cemetery without the county name.

Was just wandering....
I wrote the obit about Harold (Skip) Yowell who was the co-founder of Jansport, along with his cousin, Murray Pletz and his wife, Jan...I thought for sure Skip would have landed on the (famous) findagrave it possible you may be able to do that?..Later now.

Civil War graves in Westchester county NY
During the Depression Westchester County NY commissioned WPA workers to create a file index for all veteran's graves- Revolutionary War up to WWI
Theses cards include reason for death, regimental history, place of burial and plot, kin, dates of enlistment and discharge and battles and actions participated in eg: Cold Harbor, Mud March, Wilderness Campaign.
For all intents and purposed these represent Official Death certificate information. The county digitalized them.
Find A Grave members in this county have been including them in the memorials.
Please contact me about this?

A J Lemfair memorial
Hello Russ, I am so excited to finally find a picture of Andrew J Lanfair's grave... I have been looking for so long to find where he was buried, and of course, that spelling tripped me up! He is in my ancestry... would you please transfer his record to me? I'm excited to add his family info to the record! Thank you!

Request for transfer
Hi Russ,

I'm hoping you will transfer memorial # 100239255 (Joel S. Harris), my great uncle to my care. I have his father and mother's memorials and would like to add him.

Thanks for all your work with this great cemetery.

Montefiore Cemeteries in NY
There are two cemeteries in NY with this name: Old Montefiore is in Queens County and New Montefiore is in Suffolk County. Originally findagrave had them listed as Old Montefiore and New Montefiore. That has changed. New Montefiore is still listed with "New", but Old Montefiore is now just listed as Montefiore. I have noticed several duplicates where people who are correctly listed in New Montefiore are now also listed in Montefiore. The incorrect duplicates are very current. I sent messages to a few, but it would be easier if Montefiore in Queens can be changed to Old Montefiore so people adding records can see both. Thank you.

Search by FAG#
I just came up with a need for this where a person is listed with her mother as a note with a Find A Grave# then unable to find where to search the number.

Hi Russ,
Many thanks for your quick and thoughtful reply to my edit suggestion regarding Margaret Sergeant's father, Rev. Elihu Spencer. It means a lot to have them reunited.

Some problem with website
When I am at home, I can do most anything (edit, etc) but when I am at work, 99.99% of the time, all the website does is have a rotating circle or absolutely nothing shows up and if you go back and forth for the same person, the person then disappears and all that shows is the name, the find a grave icon and a blank screen. Can you figure out what may be wrong? I work for the Commonwealth of PA so I can not upgrade or download an app or upgrade the system. Thank you.

Using correct terminology
World War II Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient.

The proper term/name for the award is Medal of Honor, not Congressional Medal of Honr.

As a US military veteran I admit I am bothered by the technical errors so many of you who write to biographys of our heros.

In this case this is taken from your bio of Lt. Alexander “Sandy” Bonnyman.

Thank you for your time.

Sir, please consider updating the bio on Lt Bonnyman. His remains have been found and identified and laid to rest in the very cemetery where you have him located on Sunday, 27 September. Thank you for all you do for our veterans.

Editing Cemetery's Info
Is there a way to edit Cemetery info? some of my family's cemeteries info needs to be updated For instance, one cemetery's location is the wrong address. The address given is to the old original CHURCH. The Cemetery is actually 20 minutes away in an adjacent county with a different address,
