online collection of burial information. Quickly search more than 180 million
graves in half a million cemeteries around the world. Add a new memorial or a
photo and GPS location to an existing memorial. Eas...
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.
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.
Good app but needs request dates
I love using the app and taking pics to help out those that want to see a relative’s grave. However the app does not show the date that a request was made, which is a better indicator whether the grave is really there or not than the report a problem function which not everyone uses. Also what would be great is a bookmark tab under each cemetery to refine those that you will attempt to look for into a single easy to reference window for that particular location.
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.
Not very user friendly
I’m about to sign out of it just because using it without signing in is easier. Plus it is locking me out of getting online on a browser, where I can actually do more what I would love this app to do. I need the forums just full options when adding a memorial would be amazing. Oh and the ability to use my password without resetting or logging out of the app on the web browser which is super annoying. I’m not so interested in 50 new ways to search unless it’s by surname or given name spelling.
I find this extremely strange. People who don’t even know someone is creating memorials within 24 hours of their deaths. Instead of focusing on memorializing a person like they will copy entire news articles about how the person died. Loved ones already know this information they shouldn’t have to have it posted on an a memorial. When you send a message to the person that created the memorial and let them know they have incorrect information since they didn’t wait for the actual information be released the become defense and let you know your advice and opinion isn’t wanted or needed.
Cemetery names & locations
In Louisville, Ky their are two large separate cemeteries that are adjacent to each other. A large wall separates them. Each has a separate property address. On my IPhone photos taken in them the location comes up the same for both cemeteries. Our IPhone 8’s have the latest Apple updates and Find A Grave updates. This week a photo taken at a different cemetery about 5 miles from the other two was misidentified. With today’s technology I find these happenings unacceptable. Go ahead Apple and Find A Grave and blame the satellites and GPS system.
Memorial for Curien Conro
This is my great grandfather and he did not have a Memorial or a grave site. I got in touch with St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church where he was a member. I was referred to Deacon James Ward, who checked their records, and found where Curien Conro was buried. James took pictures right away with the explanation that Curien was buried inbetween two graves, but had no head stone. That is why no one was able to locate Curien’s grave and some day I hope to give him a head stone. Janet Sweet Lux
Needs improvement, otherwise good
The app has gone through updates since my last review, but text put in a memorial in the desktop version of the site (bio/grave condition) still doesn’t appear correctly on mobile (breaks between paragraphs don’t show up, etc). We still need the option to look at and add flowers from within the app. Other than that, it is a good app
Please consider allowing families 90 days to post the first memorial regarding their loved one. Many times others jump on it, day 1, and memorials are incorrect or families are just not ready yet to see it in writing, the finality of it all. It is a part of the grieving process. Thanks for listening. Nancy Foulk. xo
Some may think it morbid, but I find cemeteries peaceful, picturesque, and inspiring. Rolling hills of soft grassy knolls dotted with historical reminders of those who came before. Some of these markers display recognizable names of people who have achieved greatness and who are remembered. And some with names of the every day wives, husbands, and children who have lived and gone. Their existence left for us by the etched cement above their graves.
Such a great site!
I’m so glad i discovered Find-A-Grave. I’ve found friends I lost contact with years ago who have passed away. I would have never know had it not been for this site. I was searching for a few friends to try and reconnect — and was led to this site. I’d still be searching had I not found them here.
I was searching for the grave of my sister, who died in infancy years before I was born, in a foreign country. I put in the details I had - no results. Then I entered the details of my paternal grandmother’s gravesite (of which I know the location) - no results. Paternal grandfather? No results. Father? No results. Mother? No results. All of these are in the public record and can be found via Google. How do we stand a remote chance of finding a grave so much further afield if the ones that are easy to find don’t even show up here? So disappointed.
Why is my ap no longer opening?
I have created memorials that I have had for years. I have an updated IOS for my iPhone 6splus I finally deleted and reinstalled and signed in. All memorials are showing up in random cemeteries. Some missing and I needed to search for them in Find My Grave and re-save to the correct cemetery. Something definitely wrong! Have been using ap for many years and never had a problem before.
