Please find below a small part of the Q & A's that deal exclusively with transfers and corrections.
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree. 

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

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-directrelatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor.  Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

Abby Normal:

It seems we have a duplicate listing in William Jordan. I see by the dates that you had your listing in before me. However, I did not know that you had put William in Find A Grave.

William Lewis is my great great grandfather. I finally located his grave site in June of 2003.
I would like to have the maintenance of this grave. Maybe we can work something out.

I would not internally use your picture without giving you credit for the picture. I have removed your picture from my William Lewis entry and have entered one of my own when I first found his grave. I had these pictures long before I became a member of Find A Grave.

Thank you very much for this consideration.

I will make a request for the headstone image for Florence Loretta King Rasberry (Find A Grave#30917686). You have placed the headstone image on her husband's memorial. Would do the same for Florence?
