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

tech support please
I added a picture recently, and the person who setup the memorial is telling me it is not the correct stone, and I need to remove it, I do not see the instructions anywhere on the FAQ's for that, HELP PLEASE, thank you.

Who do i contact for tech support? I cant post a picture on my profile because it says my email address is registered to another user. I have had this same email since 1998. I think i had signed up once before but forgot i did and signed up again. Can someone help me with this??? I cant see anywhere that I can click for tech support.

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

Robert Von Schlick
Find A Grave Memorial# 6240995

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.

See: Find A Grave Memorial# 55062421

The San Diego Union
Sunday Morning, March 28, 1926
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.
