I've been a FAG contributor for several years and the ONLY time I see the type of problem you described is from a *genealogist wanna be*. They gritch and growl about those of us who enter memorials for people we are not related to (because we don't transfer) but never see the problem is in the mirror. They are diluting the database with garbage. There was one such person adding garbage in local (to me) cemeteries: people who died decades before this area was settled, the "shotgun" approach of creating a memorial for the same person in multiple cemeteries to "find" which is correct. And then there are the unknown burial locations. Pure garbage. I wish Ancestry had never indexed Find A Grave because these issues are just escalating.
