Getting Contributor to Answer
How o I go about getting a Contributor (who seems not to be updating anymore) to make corrections/ changes/updates to their memorials OR transfer the memorial to me. (I am referring to Contributors who I have contacted several times and do not get a response on Memorials I have a relationship with.)

Cemetery Correct
I emailed Find a Grave to correct a name of a cemetery that I manage. Most grateful that you all made the correction for me. But sadly, as I look at what was inputted there is one error that was made. Some one on your staff miss spelled Cemetery. It reads as follows: Thornhurst United Methodist Cemeter can you get someone to correct the spelling? Thanks sincerely, Susan Beth Mohr Engels - Historian TUMC member (#48825244)

New Version
I have been member for several years, and have contributed several memorials. I also have lots of information that needs to be added to existing and probably future memorials that I am entering using the existing version. The existing version permits a PC user to see all / or most of the information at one time and permits an easy editing features.

The new version must be handy for viewers using hand held or tablets, but requires continually scrolling to view all the data. To edit, it is even more complicated and cumbersome. I can see where a not genealogist with a handheld and be a casual user may use the new version, I can not see any useful time that I would use it on my PC.
I hope you will keep both versions. Thank you.

Photos needed in cemeteries.
Is it possible to print just a list of the photos needed in a specific cemetery? We would like to go to cemeteries with such a list and see how many we can find. For example, in the Greenwood Union Cemetery, Hunter KS (near us), there are only 58% of the 706 burials photographed. We could surely find a great lot of them with such a list.

Find a Grave Program suggestion
Russ, just a thought for the programer's.
Why can't there be additional boxes on the 'suggested edits' page for siblings. I'm sure it's been brought up and discussed but in my experience using the program there has been more than several times that siblings that have a memorial are not included on the same page as the parents or other siblings. Maybe even a explanation box along with it. Just a thought, Bill

Paul Bridger
Russ, are you connected to Paul Bridger or was it just a volunteer contribution. I have come across a special artifact from him and would like to share with any family members available.

Changes comming to FAG
I have been using the preview and I find that any one can edit using the the new find a grave that is coming. The only one that should be able to edit a
FindAGrave site is the one that created the site or in maintaining the site.

the new find a grave
Hi Russ thank you so your hard work on find a grave. i love it but not like the new program it is very hard to work with. my mother in law who is 85. was able to use your old find a grave this new one she has decided it is not worth the headache of using to do family genealogy.

RE: Maughlin headstone photo, Green Mount Cemetery, Balto. MD
To follow up on your comment, I checked the FAQs. You might not have noticed a change to the rules after bought Find A Grave:

"Can I add a photo that I found on Find a Grave to a memorial I am working on?

Our Terms of Service allow photos posted to Find A Grave to be shared amongst the Ancestry Community. As a result, you can post photos you found on Find A Grave to your Find A Grave memorials or on other Ancestry Community websites. We recommend that you provide attribution to the user who originally posted the photo. Please note: if you think a photo on Find A Grave includes living persons, you should get permission from the user who originally posted the photo before reposting it anywhere."
