We offered the Find a Grave collection for free at MyHeritage, as this collection was created on a voluntary basis and therefore should be free to access for the Genealogy community. Ancestry bought Find a Grave and we were forced to remove the collection from our website. Therefore we no longer offer the Find a Grave collection for free on MyHeritage, this also includes records, that were already saved by you in the past. Since Ancestry now is the owner of this collection, we were legally bound to remove the collection and every record of it from our website.
We now offer you to use our Billion Graves collection for free, as Billion Graves is built on the same idea: Volunteers take pictures of graves and upload them for the community. If you would like to help increase this collection, you are more than welcome to volunteer and participate taking pictures of graves using the BillionGraves app.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused. As stated above, removing Find a Grave was not our intention nor our decision.
Apparently Ancestry.com. bought find a grave and took all records with them. They say its still free but don't try thru Ancestry.com. I had better luck just googling find a grave, but hard to match onto your account. If you discover a way, please ; let us know. It was an excelllent Source of information.
Ancestry and MyHeritage are competitors. They are the two largest (most successful) Genealogy sites on the Internet. Ancestry still has an edge over MyHeritage as far as US records are concerned, whereas MyHeritage is better linked internationally. In the past, Ancestry's research features were far superior to those offered by MyHeritage, but this has changed. The research features offered by MyHeritage (to paying customers) are now truly excellent ... and Ancestry notices that it is losing members to MyHeritage. Thus, if they can make MyHeritage be a little less successful, look a little less attractive, they will surely not miss the opportunity. This is what happened here -- nothing personal, just business.

I tried changing the main person by going thru the instructions given by the website but when I type in another name the drop down window starts the search but never finds the new person in the family tree. Is there another way to change the main person?
It used to be so simple. With this "new and improved" format, I cannot figure out how to detach or attach an incorrectly placed individual and the support section is worthless. Can anyone tell me how it is done
thanks for the explanation, but is there any way I can re-send a link to someone who says they never got it? Of 6 links I sent out yesterday, three people said they didn't get it. I suggested they check their Spam folders, but they don't see a link.
Strangely, MH says that the invites were sent to those email addresses. In one case, it tells me a link was sent to the right email address but it gives a different first name for the person!
