Find-A-Grave Users Must Transition to New Website by August 20, 2018!
Some readers may remember that almost FIVE YEARS AGO (yes, September 2013!), Ancestry announced it had purchases the Find-A-Grave website (read announcement HERE).
Well, while the new “look” for Find-A-Grave has been available for quite some time at https://findagrave.com, there are still some people who seem to prefer the “old look” which you can find at https://old.findagrave.com/.
Recently, Find-A-Grave has posted the following message to users who are still smitten with the “old look.”
“The time has come for us to close down the old Find A Grave site.
The old site will be retired on August 20th.
We appreciate the great feedback we’ve received and have many many changes to the new site that we hope will make it easier for you to use. If there are specific things you still have trouble doing with the new site, please let us know by using the “Send Feedback” link at the bottom of any page of the new Find A Grave site. We will continue to work to improve the site and look forward to working with you to make it the best it can be.
The Find A Grave Team”
The transition date is August 20th, 2018. The sky shall not fall. It is not the end of the world. Change is good. This too shall pass.
