I especially enjoy the hyper linking of family members to other pages of Find A Grave for even more information.

Two questions:
1. How does one correct the contents of a Find a Grave website that is in error when the creator is either dead or does not respond to any emails?
2. Why have the Maps and Latitude and Longitude coordinates been removed from Find A Grave. The GPS Latitude & Longitude) coordinates are very important to enable locating and visiting a cemetery and grave site of a relative or person in ones FTM file they are searching.

Thanks, Dennis York

First, I can’t get “help” because FAQ won’t load.

When I try a Memorial Search so that I can attach pics, I can input the name of the cemetery (in this case, Grand View Cemetery) and the country (USA). It won’t let me load a state (which is CA)…I can’t get beyond that (county would be L. A. Co.). The only choice on my screen is “dismiss.”

When I do a cemetery search, the same thing happens.

I happen to live close to several cemeteries, but the only thing I’m receiving is a photo request for one of these cemeteries.

How can I upload photos to memorials?

Android has a larger installed base than iphones now and you’re cutting out a large number of your users.

When you “dis” one group of the user base continuously (not the first time ancestry has released an app for iphone first) then that user base tends to get an opinion of ancestry. There are lots of other choices out there now for family history research; Ancestry is not the only game anymore.

Disappointed.

If this is the first time you have used the App Store, you will have to give it a credit card number. I don’t approve of this — I think it is a significant usability hurdle for first-time users, but that’s Apple’s rule. They won’t charge the card for a free app, though.

But I have a concern about the quality of the photos submitted via camera phones. Camera phones usually do a fine job, but for some of the older or more difficult tombstones, there is a better way, which is unfortunately not an option with camera phones: off-camera flash. So, folks, use this app and your phone for the easy ones, but when the going gets tough, check out this technique: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceRWpeNgoms
