Do any of ye use this website to search for the graves of your ancestors?
If so, what are your opinions on the site?

Haven't used the site so far. I use Findagrave mostly & one of my contributions to genealogy is to upload photos & inscriptions on to the site.

If you have family in their coverage area its useful (I do); but they have very little outside Galway/Mayo/Donegal. Also some transcriptions are quite poor and were probably done by photograph and not inspection of the stone. Their process encourages corrections from locals but if there's nobody left in the area that doesn't turn up anything.

I've also found a comprehension error of relationships between people in the grave but it was a very complex setup (parents, children, sibling of the parent, etc)

I've found a few names from Mayo and Donegal that I was searching for, quite useful.

A very easy site to use but many of the photos are of poor quality meaning inscriptions are nigh on impossible to read.
