    • These countries all have more than 5,000 cemeteries currently listed. This includes Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Australia. 
      Unmapped Cemeteries broken out by Country. 5-color level.
      This means that the cemeteries listed for that country do not have GPS assigned to them.

      How does your country look?

    • Unmapped Cemeteries broken out by County. 5-color level.
      This means that the cemetery listed does not have GPS assigned to it. This has nothing to do with % of cemetery photographed or mapped memorials.
      How does your county look?

    • Thanks for all your responses to our post about the upcoming changes to the site. We have been reading them and really appreciate your feedback and support. Paul, one of our developers, wrote up this note that goes into a bit more detail than that first message, for those of you who are interested.
       
      As one of the Find A Grave developers I thought you might appreciate it if I were to write a post explaining our reasoning behind changing the site, as well as some things to expect going forward. Find A Grave was created by Jim Tipton in the 1990’s to pursue his passion of visiting the graves of famous people. Find A Grave has always been free, and will continue to be a free website supported by ads.
       
      Since then Find A Grave has seen amazing growth, and has thrived thanks to the contributions of users like you. But the classic version of the website is starting to show its age. The code is written in technologies that are no longer supported and that inherently contain security vulnerabilities. Features were added to the site in a piecemeal fashion that makes it very difficult for us to maintain the old codebase while at the same time upgrading all the underlying infrastructure. 
       
      One of the most noticeable changes with the new version is the user interface. We needed to make the site mobile friendly. The reason the layout has changed so much is largely due to this requirement. We understand that a change this significant can be hard. It’s not easy to learn a new interface, especially when the previous interface has been around for 20 years. But we feel like this layout will be much easier for new users to learn. And we hope that our old users will take the time to learn how to use it. We will include many tutorial videos explaining how the new interface works in order to help users who are struggling with the changes.
        • Thanks
