Here's my main problem with Findagrave

Findagrave allows a single member to possess hundreds of thousands or probably soon to be millions of memorials. This simply isn't fair and encourages sick individuals to horde memorials, apparently to stroke their ego's at the expense of the families of the dead. Let me give you an example: My father's aunt's findagrave memorial is owned by someone who is in no way related to her, doesn't give a whit about her or her family, and refuses to transfer her memorial to a family member (me) who shares not only her genetics but her family name. I've been trying to gather my family's memorials under a single umbrella and am unable to do so due to this morbid compulsion with obtaining cyber corpses.

I think most findagrave subscribers are like me and are only interested in their own families and I can not for the life of me comprehend why anyone would want to own hundreds of thousands of memorials of dead people completely unrelated to them.

Findagrave, please change your rules and put a stop to this absurd competition for being the greatest cyber corps owner, it's becoming psychotic.

This being said, I still use it because it is a wonderful resource, but it could be much better than it is.

In summary, I would recommend Find A Grave to a friend.
