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: warren
Hi DJ,

My email address is if you would like to communicate that way. I'd love to know more about your Warren connection. I had/have some Warrens in Griffin and Conyers. We might be related. Are you on If so, look me up at stephaniesnapp35.

Thanks for the encouragement. I haven't uploaded a lot, but have sent in LOTS of edits. I want the info. to be accurate so that 3-4 generations from now people won't be wondering what a middle name was or who someone married.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Stephanie :)

RE: moore
Thank you, D.J. I will probably request the transfers of my family members later today or this week. Thanks for all the work and information you have provided for me and others.

Hi DJ, I transferred her to you. Tony Wood added the memorial for Nancy Banner. I think I sent an edit to add her parents. Joyce

RE: mitchell
Oh, sorry.
These graves are in the Wyatt Mountain Mission Cemetery, in Greene County, Virginia. It is a small cemetery half-way up the mountain. We lived about 4 miles up the road, a little over the summit.
Best wishes,
Demaris Guest Humphries Miller

Hello, Please clarify the requested correction for William Basnaw. The only reference made to Commerce is the place of death which was listed as the Northridge Medical Center which is in Commerce, Georgia. Thanks for your interest.

RE: lefevares
This is my first day on Find-A-Grave so I am not familiar with all of the ways to connect folks so I will just leave that up to you, if that is ok. Joseph Lewis (J.L. or "Jake") Shipp is buried next to her at Resthaven Cemetery in Georgia (memorial #92015988). George C. "Buddy" West is buried on the other side of her in Resthaven Cemetery in Georgia (memorial #92016159). Perry Lefeavers (her 3rd husband) moved to AZ and is still alive as far as we know.
If it is easiest enough to explain how to connect relations in Find A Grave, I would love to understand how. I am pretty sure I have pictures of her mother and father's grave as well that could be connected but I will have to look for them...
Thank you for the quick response and desire to update the information. I appreciate it!

His wife, Helen, died yesterday. There is a small obit in the Atlanta paper and a more informative one in the Rockdale/Newton paper, if you would like to add it
