"Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren".

"The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."
~Jim Tipton, creator of Find A Grave.

I will gladly transfer within the guidelines and am more than happy to make corrections and additions to those memorials which fall outside of the guidelines. If memorials I've transferred are stripped of the obit or photos, I won't transfer anymore to that person. I do not transfer "all" of any name. Please use virtual cemeteries for the purpose of collecting "all" your relatives.
Please use the edit key for transfers and
changes or corrections.

Photos I take may be used, no need to ask permission, but please give me credit, as FAG photo takers are volunteers who provide their own gas and time to go take photos. Please put "Headstone photo taken by FAG Volunteer, Kathy #47737776" in the description box. Thank you, in advance.

I include the newspaper or funeral home when mentioned for future relatives who are trying to build their family trees. Even though other FAG members feel it is an easy way to "beat me" to the obituary. Shame on you. If you don't have the time to enter more than the date born and the date they died, maybe you need a new hobby. Every persons life should be remembered for more than just a couple dates.
A name with "unk" "unk" for the dates is no memorial at all. My purpose is a full and complete memorial.
So often I see-"my photos are not to be used on paid sites like". FAG is owned by and has been for several years now. This is what FAG says--Find A Grave is owned and supported by Ancestry. Our Terms of Service state that when you upload content to Find A Grave, you grant Find A Grave and its group companies the right to reuse that content on other sites in the group, including Ancestry users may include information found on Find A Grave in their trees on Ancestry sites and Ancestry may show information and images from Find A Grave in their search or other areas of the site. This expands the reach of the information collected on Find A Grave and helps other members of the Ancestry Community who are researching their ancestors.
And as for duplicates--"Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you are adding a memorial for someone who has recently passed or who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. Never deliberately create a duplicate memorial". To me this means, send an edit, do not just make a duplicate. FAG has enough unintentional duplicates!

Neugart Graves
Hi Kathy!

Thank you for updating the Neugart family memorials! Just a side note, the reason why Akan, Wisconsin doesn't come up in the drop down is because it's an actual "Town", not a city. So FindaGrave doesn't add those to their list.

I have the birth & death records for these individuals, and they all list Akan as the place of birth, so I guess settling for the county is all we can do.

Thanks again for your help!

Best wishes, J T D

Hello Kathy,

Hi Kathy,
Could you please transfer my Aunt Sophie Kolokowski (155481149) to me M. Kurylo (47042503). I was happy to see that you added her obituary as part of her bio. I didn't remember placing her obituary in the Wausau paper (just the Chicago Tribune) but I'm glad you added it.
Thank you, Mickie

Hi Kathy,

I live just a couple of minutes from the cemetery. I could run over there and take a picture. Do you have more information on the location (section, row)?

RE: Josephine Kussmann
I sent her a message that your memorial is correct and hers is inaccurate. I would hope she chooses to delete it. Or at least correct the information.
Thank you.

RE: Josephine Kussman
Hi. I am not a relative of Josephine or Erwin but my girlfriend is. I called Memorial Park and was told that Josephine is not buried there. I then called Memory Gardens and was told that Josephine and Erwin Kussmann are buried next to each other at Memory Gardens. The plot location is
Garden of Meditation Lot 313 Blk C Graves 1 & 2.
Erwin Harold Kussmann died 11-26-1994.
November 29, 1994
Erwin H. Kussmann, 83, a retired chief traffic clerk for the railroad, died Saturday in his home in North Chicago. He worked for the former Milwaukee Road for 49 years at Union Station. Survivors include his wife, Josephine; three sons, Robert, Steven and Donald; a brother; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Services will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Memory Gardens Cemetery Chapel, 2501 E. Euclid Ave., Arlington Heights.

Hope this helps.
