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,

Wrong information
I have found a mistake in the information about the R.W. Garland Cemetery in Bedford County, PA. The # for Boyd Lydick is not his #. Boyd says he has never been to PA. How can I contact the member whose # is incorrectly attached to his name?

Viruses, viruses & attacks
Not quite sure what is happening lately but over the past 30 days I have been hit with malware, 4 different viruses attached to scripts run from the Find A Grave website. I am assuming that it is advertising that is injected into the site and constantly changing. At 12:09 am, Aug 29th I was hit with Exploit:HTML/Axpergle.O - webscript.


This threat uses vulnerabilities in recent versions of Internet Explorer, Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, and Java to install malware on your PC.

Fortunately my A/V caught it right when it happened. What's going on? Just started happening in the past month.

Colonel Robert Levan Orr
Hello. I am only 1 day into joining this site. I wrote to your regular email address and hope to hear back from you.

I post here only to alert you to my email as I get the impression from my reading that you may be heavily involved in this web site (which might cause regular emails to go to your spam folder).

I'd like to 'fix' a few family members from Monument Cemetery / Lawnview Cemetery and need to learn the best way to accomplish it. I also want to add photographic info--appropriately / correctly--to Colonel Robert Levan Orr.

Thank you

Russ, You and I are long distance connected to Guilinger. Hannah Dodge was sister to Ann (1814) Guilinger who married my 2d great grandfather John Foxhill. I see you do not have much on the Guilinger side.

Ronaldon's AKA Phila. Cemetery
Russ, thank you for the quick reply, but I do not go with this theory. Most duplicates are probably caused by a poster "not" doing their homework and checking to see if already listed. We do not know if "factually" a body/remains were removed. So many horror stories of the Philadelphia cemeteries. Regards, Jane

Closed out Ronaldson's AKA Phila. Cemetery
Russ, I am appalled that All the postings of our ancestor's are no longer on this site. Everyone interred there should so have remained! If I knew an ancestor was removed at some time, I noted that to the person. Will you close down Franklin, Monument, Lafayette and all the others as well?
Regards, Jane

FYI - from your bio - The date of the awarding of his Medal, one of two issued posthumously from the Boxer Rebellion, was not recorded, and is unknown.

Robert died in 1941.

Among those who knew him well is Robert M. von Schlick, 1214 South Twenty-ninth Street. Von Schlick fought with Lee before Tientsin in the Boxer Rebellion and was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor on recommendation of Lee, then a Major.

misspelling of Ignatius
Mr. Dodge, recently I was doing some work on Martin Ignatius Joseph Griffin who is buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Yeadon, Delaware County, PA. The Memorial Number is 39646683.
Two letters are reversed in his name Ignatius: the letters g and n. Would you please correct that error? I cannot do that.

I submitted some updated information. He was not born in Ireland; he was born in Philadelphia. I also found out he was born in Oct 1842. Since I saw his death certificate, I know he died in Philadelphia. I added these pieces of info to update the his memorial.

As I said, I am unable to correct the spelling error in his name. I would so appreciate your doing that.

Thank you,
Donna Stockl
