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,

Cemetery fix/update forum
I have tried to go here to see if I can change the location of the Colony Cemetery in Van Buren Co..Ark. but the page will not take my memeber information. It won't accept my name or email address to get a new password. My member name is "Connie" and my contact is I have been a member for nearly three years. Why will it not take my info?
If you are not who I need to contact and you send me in the right direction?
Thank you
