Due to attacks from hackers against the SUVCW Graves Database you are most likely aware of restrictions that have been placed on the database to ensure it is online and of use to anyone who wishes to use it as it was designed to be used. Below are three sets of guidelines that have been introduced to the database.
1. Public Use: Anyone with or without an account may research using the database, yes, they must have a surname and they are limited to 20 results for each search. www.suvcwdb.org
2. User Account: A user account that was in service prior to 01 August 2016 is still in service, the login in page is located at www.user.suvcwdb.org – for those who didn’t have a user account prior to 01 August 2016 they may still request a user account but must do so through a direct request to the office of the National Graves Registration Officer (NGRO). A user account doesn’t require the surname and searches can be made to view as many as 100 results at a time, some are authorized to view all the results in one search field at one time.
3. Admin Account: A admin account is still only authorized and created by the National Graves Registration Officer, no other Brother in the order has the right to a Administration Account by virtue of his office, with the exception of the National Graves Committee Members and the National Graves Registration Officer (NGRO). All other Admin Accounts must be earned and maintained via the guidelines of the NGRO as authorized by the Commander-in-Chief. Admin Account holders may make edits to existing records, delete existing records and approve/disapprove new submissions after they have been confirmed/unconfirmed. Types of people who may be considered for a Administration Account are National Aides to the National Committee on Graves Registration, Department Graves Registration Officers, Certified Cemetery Project Managers and others as deemed by the NGRO. Login information will be given to the account holder at the time they are granted an account.
