Ratings and Reviews
A find it to be good, but...
This app fills my needs and I find it very useful.
However it DESPERATELY needs an option for default settings. For instance in MY case most of my searches are for Broome County in New York in the United States. I have to select each of those for each search.
How about giving us the option to make a default selection for each time we fire up a search? Of course we could re-select something different when THAT need arises. Me, I would default to United States and New York. Or perhaps tweak the app to where the next time you launch it that it pre-selects the same country etc that you selected the previous time?
I am really TIRED of having to start from scratch each time. I am dropping my rating from 3 to 2.
Amazing volunteers connecting family
This application is really the best. It is a community of volunteers, working together to memorialize grave markers for everyone!
It allows families to connect, by linking, even if they are in different places and provides a causal user benefit if they just want to know who came before them. It allows people to personalize the memorials, add photos, and to- with a small fee- purchase a memorial without ads and unlimited photographs.
No other cite is as valuable a resource for helping people who are working on family history.
Thank you so much for those who have made it and for those who work so hard to make it wonderful.
Great grave info app, and developers responsive!
A huge thank you to Find-a-Grave app developers for recently adding iPad Landscape support, greatly appreciated! They do read user feedback and work hard to accommodate our suggestions.
The Find-a-Grave app provides great grave info searches, including matches by name, date, location, as well as whatever grave info is available, including locations, obituaries, etc. Very helpful to find someone based on partial info and to narrow the search.
With the latest updates, very well done and helpful app, and runs nicely across different devices.
