Issue with the site.
There are days that I am working on Find A Grave that when you pull up a name it will not pull up a picture. It will also send a loading box to the bottom of the page and force me to shut down my system and restart. What causes this. I am also aware that security on this site is poor.

I have had an attack on my system with malware twice now.

Kind of shocked-can I get someone to transfer some accounts please?
I just joined Find A Grave, I was very excited to be able to input information to my relatives...this is wonderful to think that anyone can find out a little history of this person. I am particularly happy to fill in the "unknown"s on my relates page, to connect them with wives and children. However I am very shocked at the aditude of many of the "owners" or the people who have entered the graves into the db. Maybe I don't understand how this works but I rather not deal with some of them. I have a person that has turned off their messages but "owns" all my relatives on my mother's side. When I went into her profile she or maybe he had a really nasty bio. REALLY NASTY. I am perplexed ..why would someone enter over 200,000 graves and not expect to get contacted constantly regarding changes? Since she/he is unreachable can someone move them to my account so I can manage my grandparents and great grandparents. I will add as many as I can....but I would like to have someone who loved them take care of them. I will not have 200k to handle.
I appreciate your site, it is a wonderful thing...

Message from JB
I got a message from JB saying he sent me an email, "JB - No response ----
I sent you an e-mail regarding Hershel Stites and got no response. If you don't want people sending you e-mails, you might want to change your settings so your e-mail address doesn't show ."

But when I go into the site I cannot look up his email, profile, or respond to the message he sent. I got nothing from him to respond to but this nasty message in F.A.G. Am I doing something wrong?

Leon "Red" Ames, Warren OH
Russ: There's a mistake or typo in your biog information for LK "Red" Ames. The WSeries with Boston in 1912 went 8 games, Boston winning 4 to 3, with a tie. If you wish to add something interesting on Red, he pitched what turned out to be the final game at the South End Grounds, a 13 inning 0 to 0 tie against Brave Lefty Tyler. It was Red's longest pitching stint in any game of his career (8-11-1914).

Francis H.C. Crick: correction
On the centenary of his birth, please do action:

"He and James Watson* shared the 1962 Nobel Prize in Chemistry** for their discovery."

* and Maurice Wilkins

** in Physiology and Medicine, not Chemistry

Both of them are substantive errors Russ!! MDP+

I may have stop working on find a grave. In one day I will use as much as 2 GIG of my air time just searching and linking family members due to all the advertising you now put on every page. I realize you need to make money to support this site but this is getting to be ridicules with as many as 8 - 10 adds on every memorial It not only eats up air time but it really slows things down a lot. I do love Find a grave it is a fantastic site but what can be done to speed things up and not require using up all these bits of air time. It only started to do this in the last few months. Thank You Tom Rader 47422815

Transfer help
Hello, I have been a member of the Find-A-Grave community for about a year. At that time I took over as caretaker of a small cemetery (Covell Cemetery Urbana Steuben County New York). I was hoping to have the management of the memorials in this cemetery transferred to me. Sadly the individual who manages the memorials stated in his bio that he doesn’t do transfers. He has also turned off messaging. His name is Stuart Strout Woodside Skolfield (#46954007). My goal is to do genealogy research on everyone in this cemetery. Managing the memorials would make corrections and additions much easier to make. Is there anything Find A Grave management can do to help in obtaining the transfer of these memorials?

Thank you,
Steve Beikirch

This is my Mother. I requested that I take this one over and obviously was refused, as the one I did create is now gone.

This one had her nickname Peanut listed, and my Mother despised that nickname. Thankfully it was removed as I requested.

Although I understand that people are touchy because they have been doing this for years, but when they take over someones close relative, this becomes offensive. Ancestor/Relative Stealing - my phrase for it.

I kindly requested this be turned over to me, but was denied.

The girl who has removed mine, denied changes, etc., swoops in and takes these off the internet obits before a family member has the chance to grieve and get busy doing it themselves. This is unethical and a deliberate disrespect of ones family members.

Im sorry to have contacted you, but she has her messages disabled. Would you be so kind as to reply? CrystalMurphy4@aol.com

Also, I am sorry to have put this out for public eye, but there seems to be no way to email anyone privately.

Russ,
I'd like to reach out to a contributor to ask where she or he found the information they added to a memorial page. All I have is the contributor's number. Can you tell me how to reach out to him or her? Thanks
