Enjoy recording history,if you don't want a memorial that is on here please ask me to delete it.

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management 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 will 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-direct relatives (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 must 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 will 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.

NOTE: If you are unable to edit a memorial after it has been transferred to your account, try logging out of Find A Grave then logging back in. [Top]

RE: Pierce
Thank you. What was your grandmother's name if I may ask from Tn.? I'm not sure how to find you on facebook, but you can find me maybe under peachsandtarts there on facebook or Melissa Beller. I have just upload on my notes section of the Pierce DNA project on there, if you want to look at it.

John H. Hendrix Jr.
Hi DJ,

Rec'd your request to update his birth & death dates per photo of marker. However, he did not die Jan. 25, 2011, but Nov. 25, 2014. I found his obit online and just added it, and it states that he died on Nov. 25, 2014. Perhaps this photo is for another John Hendrix? If not, then the information on the marker is wrong. Thanks, DJ.

RE: corrections
Thanks D.J. This way people doing research have access to both City record info and Selective Service and Census info.

I don't know which city records you accessed but it has been my personal experience (in the case of Death Certificates in particular) that the records are only as accurate as the memory or information the surviving family member knew.

RE: eastview - crutchfield
Do you have a memorial number? I looked at the memorial for the Martha Crutchfield in Eastview Cemetery in Conyers, and there's no death certificate posted there. I'm a little confused.

RE: eastview - crutchfield
Did you intend to reply to someone else? I don't recall anything about a Martha Crutchfield. :)
