Love this site

Find a Grave is a great to in our ancestry. If used correctly. Since it’s all volunteers, you depend on the accuracy of hat they put on the site. The biggest downfall with this is people only caring about their numbers. They get information from funeral homes and create memorials immediately. This leaves people who want to manage close friends and or family members outside the guidelines unable to be the manager. Many of these “numbers” people copy and paste obituary, which includes names of living relatives. They also use the pictures provided to the funeral homes. To me find a grave is exactly that- finding the grave. Not create a memorial. Just wish there was a cap or something to keep these people from grabbing all memorials. Or at least not make them immediately upon publishing.

Why require iOS 12 on iPhone only?

This previously working app stopped working due to a recent change at FamilySearch (I presume). It says an update is required. When I try to update, it requires ios12. Why? I am running iOS 11.4 on both my phone and iPad. The iPad version continues to work and does not require an update or an OS upgrade.

And by the way, it is way too early to abandon iOS 11 support. Most apps will maybe not support new features until you upgrade, but it is rare to not offer a few versions with downward compatibility. Shame on your developers for letting this happen.

Hi Deborah, this app should work with iOS 11. We haven't been able to replicate this issue. Please send an email to with screenshots and details and we'll look into this further for you.

Serial Memorial makers

I don’t like these people using my tree to make my family’s memorials. As another
Commenter said it’s creepy & some of these people are very rude & unhelpful. If you know the info is incorrect you want it changed. So is documented & some may be because you knew the person & know it’s factual.
Knowing you’re owned by ancestry why can’t you make sure that Memorial makers are family members. The woman who got nasty with me is not a family member. She created wrong info for my great great grandmother off of a cousins tree in New Zealand. That guy is by marriage & he will not even change the info on his tree. I have proof of our family & these two are wrong. At least make it easier for us to get our family away from the people.
