We have tried pinging Find A Grave website using our server and the website returned the above results. If findagrave.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Find A Grave - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Having Problems with Accessing Findagrave.com?
▼ THIS MONTH ...
Gail Fisher Walker · 15 April 2014 - 10:46

I am getting a warning from my Anti-Virus protector for "MalSign.Generic.6A4" when I try to use findagrave. Anyone else seeing this?

▼ LAST 6 MONTHS ...
Janet LaMotte · 11 March 2014 - 06:33

Findagrave.com continues to disconnect from internet whenever I try to load photos or update memorials.

Janet LaMotte · 9 March 2014 - 15:22

Findagrave.com keeps disconnecting from internet. When I try to add photos it disconnects. When I try to update memorials, it disconnects.

Mark Johnson · 6 March 2014 - 13:25

I really use FAG a great deal in my family tree on Ancestry. I have loved that FAG was free. I have contributed several hundred entries of genealogy to various relatives, as well as, people who married into my families. I felt great about this because FAG was free. People could access the information who could not afford Ancestry's price. Now that option is gone for them. That seems a shame. Could there be a way for people to still have no fee if only accessing FAG? I have tried to access the site for three days to no avail. I cannot reaffirm data with the FAG resource. It is very frustrating.

Joanna Holt · 3 March 2014 - 07:46

Glad there are others like me out there - I miss it a lot but hearing it is sold to Anc.Com also raises the question where now?? Are they going to roll it into Anc.Com and make people pay - I have added thousands of graves because it is free and I believe in that - Bit sad

Larry Boyd · 1 March 2014 - 18:51

Been trying all day today and most of yesterday with no luck.

Allen Dew · 1 March 2014 - 13:49

Cannot access finagrave.com for several hours now.

Adrienne B. Knight · 1 March 2014 - 12:11

Says down for maintenance for 3 days now. What's going on?

Janet LaMotte · 28 February 2014 - 07:23

The website keeps disconnecting fron the internet. Very frustrating!

Karen Meetis-Viveiros · 28 February 2014 - 04:10

I can add data, but can not add pictures, keep getting error. When are they going to fix this site.

Ray F. Horner · 27 February 2014 - 13:55

4:55 Friday 2/27/2014 find a grave is DOWN!

Thalmia Jackson · 27 February 2014 - 13:45

Yes, ancestry.com purchased FAG and although we don't know the specifics about this transaction, surely if ancestry.com can keep it's site up on a regular basis, they can keep FAG up as well. Ancestry.com is a fee for service (for full access) and although FAG is "free", there are those who have paid to sponsor memorials. I'd much rather ancestry.com formally announce they need to take FAG down for X period of time (as they routinely do with their own site) instead of contributors, like me, learning there are ongoing access problems firsthand. Transitioning shouldn't be an issue regardless if it's a hardware transition or just a managerial/ownership issue. Perhaps BillionsGrave.com saw this coming.... sigh.

Karen Meetis-Viveiros · 27 February 2014 - 11:56

Having trouble. Can't enter anything, just spinning on an on. Please fix it.

Why can't I add a picture. this is the message I am getting. 413 Request Entity Too Large I have been adding pictures for months. What the hexk

Jane Morrison · 27 February 2014 - 11:15

Can't log on. Could not log on yesterday either.

Deanne Orabona · 27 February 2014 - 11:03

Very frustrating... been trying to make entries for my cemetery all day and I am getting hung up. They need to straighten this out ASAP or I am going to lose my mind!

Bonnie Walker Chumney · 27 February 2014 - 10:43

For those of you who are not aware of it, findagrave.com has been purchased by ancestry.com. Any problems you are having lately, accessing it, is probably related, I am sure, to the necessity to make changes due to its new status. Thus, the more than usual maintenance time of late.

Anita Weaver Taylor · 27 February 2014 - 10:35

Having trouble connecting to fin-a-grave.com. Hope they resolve this issue soon.

Susie Oakley · 27 February 2014 - 10:08

I can't do anything once I sign on. Can't load or upload, can't search... the circle keeps going round and round and round and no responce for 3rd day straight...

Ray F. Horner · 27 February 2014 - 09:46

find a grave is down and has been for 17 minutes!

Janet LaMotte · 27 February 2014 - 07:42

The website keeps disconnecting from the internet. Very frustrating!

Thalmia Jackson · 26 February 2014 - 19:12

Down more and more often with lots of "maintenance" during peak usage hours... frustrating.

Gina Rugito Anderson · 26 February 2014 - 17:40

Down again -

Jan Goff Jenkins · 16 February 2014 - 15:01

unable to download Find a Grave pictures to my computer. 2/16

Patty Betlach Russell · 13 February 2014 - 20:10

What happened to all the photos on the memorial pages?

Carolyn Nuessen · 13 February 2014 - 19:40

This happen about the same time last night. Can go to the memorial but cannot upload photos of the site, documents, nothing, nothing, nothing. I've said this before... I know it's free, but with as many advertisements popping all around, we should be paid for our volunteer time, don't ya think?? Get it together people! Wishing some blessing on ya!

Janet LaMotte · 23 January 2014 - 06:40

I can access website but cannot do any corrections or bio info to the memorials.

Barbara K. Harp · 22 January 2014 - 16:01

When trying to create a new memorial the scroll buttons for State and Country will not scroll at all. I have cleaned my cache and cookies and still doesn't work. Let's get it fixed folks. At this rate you will be loosing volunteers if we can't get our work completed.

Janet LaMotte · 14 January 2014 - 02:15

I can access the website but no memorials come up.

Travis Graham · 2 January 2014 - 18:28

pictures are not showing. just a square and a red x

Ellen John · 30 November 2013 - 13:55

The website has been so very slow this afternoon--sometimes not functioning. I tried posting one photo several times and got a page wouldn't display message.

Victoria True · 29 November 2013 - 12:50

Down again.. SO frustrating.. If the purchase brought on new pesons to run FAG..time to fire them, and get someone who can handle the load, flow and issues. FAG has been a wonderful site but in last couple of months, something is definitely wrong with this picture. FIX IT FOLKS.. I am a patient person and enjoy FAG as so many others and down isnt good.. but if you buy something ancestory.com, should be able to handle it first ??? Did you fire all of FAG great folks? or move to your already overlaoded servers??

Marty Bootsman · 25 November 2013 - 06:32

Site down... again. 2nd day in a row. Sporadic at best.

Marty Bootsman · 24 November 2013 - 07:54

Site down today.

Cindi Scott · 22 November 2013 - 13:48

down again is this site owned by ancestry? maybe that's the problem

Glenn Kurth · 17 November 2013 - 07:28

I was working on the site early this morning when my anti-virus software activated. I disconnected from the site and the internet, scanned and cleaned my computer (3 bugs found), and when I tried to get back in, the site was down. I'm guessing they got tagged with some kind of malware. If so, they may be down for a while.

Whenesh-pii Ndishnikaaz Neegoniwabungigaywin · 17 November 2013 - 06:10

Completely down. Looks a bit grave since Ancestry.com took over.

▼ MORE THAN 6 MONTHS AGO ...
Giselle ScotDeerie · 18 October 2013 - 04:22

Down again this a.m. You can access the site but photos don't show up and you can't upload. This is starting to make me nervous. Come on, Ancestry.com! Take better care of this site. It's a treasure and one I've put a lot of work into. You're making me nervous.

Mary McGoldrick · 9 October 2013 - 19:15

I can get to the site and view memorials, many without pictures. Get error message attempting to upload photo's. Maps aren't working. Clicking on the Forums links indicates that "Image Server 2 is down"

Patty Smith · 9 October 2013 - 17:21

Might have to do with it being recently sold to Ancestry.com Lately the whole page will divert me to a full page findagrave ad. No luck with photos all day. A bunch that I loaded about midnight didn't show up correctly today so I took them off (thinking that it was me...)

Wullie ScotDeerie · 9 October 2013 - 14:39

I also can't upload photos and photos I've uploaded previously are not showing up (over 2000 of them!) although there are photos put up by other people on some memorials that ARE showing up!

Nancy Bowers · 9 October 2013 - 13:07

I can't upload photos. It's been going on for over 2 hours. Please?!

Robb Mackinson · 9 October 2013 - 12:31

Photos won't load and won't upload right now.

Shinto Jung · 28 August 2013 - 16:07

Sadly, the findagrave website is very unstable. It goes down every day. Alexa.com ranks it in 764th place in the US. I'm sure their servers just can't handle how popular the website has become. Thousands of memorials are being added everyday, so I'm sure the problem will continue to worsen. :-(

Jennette Winnyk · 28 August 2013 - 15:52

It appears that the website is down. Getting "The connection has timed out. The server at www.findagrave.com is taking too long to respond."

Stephanie Wolford Gibson · 24 August 2013 - 18:16

When trying to go onto a memorial, I get an error that there is a glitch and refresh, same thing happens after refresh.

Katherine Weatherington · 31 July 2013 - 17:46

Trying to add photos and can't. Added several earlier but with each successive one it got slower and slower til it just quit. Day before yesterday it was flying along. :o\

David Bolman · 30 July 2013 - 21:23

Unable to upload photos for the last hour.

David Bolman · 25 June 2013 - 20:01

Website has been very troublesome. I am unable to access the site tonight.

Mindi Erikson Kurtz · 25 June 2013 - 19:57

It was down earlier, then back up, and now down again. On to other things!

Patty Sayer Stevens · 25 June 2013 - 19:49

It was up and fine for me about 11am this morning - it is down tonight - have been trying for over an hour to get on it.

Jeni Duffee · 25 April 2013 - 18:55

The page will not come up!! :(
