Credit to a memorial
The credit for my information, my work that I have added to many of my memorial page's,
some of these memorial page's I created,
some I maintained starting in 2012 to 2017.
Several of these memorial's, I added a biography
for each one, with my name and contributor number at the bottom of each page, giving me credit for the information.
My question is
How do I get the contributor that maintains the
memorial, to restore
my information, that they have deleted, erased
from the memorial page, back to the memorial,
with my name and number for credit for the
information that I added.
The contributor will not respond to my request.
The contributor Pat Berel, has added her own
disregarding, discrediting my information,
that had been on these memorial's for 4 years.
I ask for your help?

mismarked grave
i have twice tried to correct an error on Joseph Julius Daniel buried in Star Hill Cemetery in Louisiana. He is listed on your site as a "SR" and that is NOT correct...his father, also buried in same cemetery, is the real SR and this Joe Daniel is the JR....please, please correct this....your "evaluators" of suggested edits need a little training! bcasford

RE: Storm A Loucks
Please read the above message posted by Paul saying he is sticky ? What is he talking about. Why does he care anyhow. This is my ancestor and he isn't even related. All genealogist know the census have mistakes. This guy is trouble. Please turn over Storm Loucks' grave to me. I have all documents to prove my claim as well as all the legal documents. Thank you.

Photo Transcriber Process
Are you aware of the damage being caused by the Photo Transcriber Process? Many duplicate memorials are being created each day. The process should be taken off line until it has been redesigned.

Storm A Loucks
Hello, my ancestor who I researched for over twenty years is NOT correct on find a grave.
Can you help me. The person who put this middle initial will NOT remove it. He is no relation.
I would ask that this grave be turned over to me.

He is buried in Darien Cemetery, WI

Linking family members
When linking family members, why is it we can only link the parent's and the spouse. I'd like to be able to link their children also.
