If you are making corrections and a profile has find a grave as a source, the grave has been removed from find a grave. Do you delete the source?

If info was gleaned from there I usually just disable the link, and note that it has been deleted. That way someone might re-find it or at least know where some info came from.

Was it a duplicate? Can you find another entry for the same plot?

If it's not a duplicate, I would not remove the source. Usually with databases you cite the date you accessed it. I don't know how that would work with the Find A Grave template.

It is like 3 of them I have come across in the last couple of days. I have tried to look the person up and nothing comes up for them.

I do, there is usually another memorial or make sure you documented the data from the deleted memorial....

I've come across the same problem recently.  I will either leave the link and note on it that's broken or delete it altogether if I can find a death source.  I always put a note in the changes box describing what I've done.

Thank you. I was beginning to worry if I was alone with this!
I thought the same thing and then I made an edit to one of my findagrave profiles and saw Delete As an option.  I don't remember that was the case before Ancestry took over.
