|Bio and Links|
I have recorded the birth date, death date, and last address of your family members. Now it is your turn to edit and enhance their memorials, for the enjoyment of future generations.|
Thank you so much to the people who generously donate their time and money to provide information, photographs, and floral contributions to people who may never be able to thank them. I especially appreciate those who remember this is much bigger than ourselves and consistently maintain their memorials in a professional manner, treating others volunteers in the respectful way in which they like to be treated.
The "Relationship Link" feature is an amazing way to link family members and build your family tree. You can link each memorial to his/her parent(s) and spouse(s). To use this feature:
1) Select "Edit" next to "Family Links" or
"Link Family Members" for first link
2) Type in (or copy and paste) the memorial number of the parent(s) or spouse(s) in the appropriate box.
3) Select "Save Changes"
FINDAGRAVE MEMORIAL TRANSFER POLICY
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-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 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 defintion. (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.
I HAVE HAD AN OVERABUNDANT AMOUNT OF BAD EXPERIENCES TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS TO MEMBERS WHO QUICKLY LOSE INTEREST AND ABANDON THE MEMORIALS I CREATED. WHEN I LOOK AT YOUR PROFILE AND I SEE YOU HAVE HAD HUNDREDS, OR THOUSANDS, OF MEMORIALS TRANSFERRED TO YOU, I WONDER ABOUT THE NECESSITY SINCE YOU ARE ONLY DIRECTLY DESCENDED FROM 30 PEOPLE ACCORDING TO FINDAGRAVE GUIDELINES. ONE TRANSFER REQUEST CAME WITH A NOTE ABOUT ALL OF THE BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SHE HAD TO POST WHICH CONSISTED OF "THIS WAS MY FIFTH GREAT GRANDPAPPY WHO I LOVED VERY MUCH". THAT, SOMEWHAT SUSPECT, BIOGRAPHY COULD HAVE BEEN POSTED ON A FLOWER TRIBUTE. I RESEARCH ALL CORRECTIONS SUBMITTED TO ME FOR ACCURACY BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT OF MISINFORMATION AND FAMILY TREES WHICH ARE ALL MESSED UP ON RESEARCH SITES. ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS I HAVE BUILT TWO SEPARATE FAMILIES IN FINDAGRAVE SO THAT THEY WILL BACKFEED CORRECTLY INTO ANCESTRY. I AM TICKLED TO RECEIVE NEW EDITS AND LINKS, AND AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA EXCITED ABOUT PICTURES AND STORIES TO PERSONALIZE THE MEMORIALS. AND I AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA UNHAPPY WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO GET ME TO REMOVE INFORMATION IN ORDER TO REWRITE THEIR HISTORY TO PLEASE THEM.
I AM AN UNBIASED CARETAKER WILLING TO POST ALL THE DOCUMENTED INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE AND HAVE WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH OTHER FINDAGRAVE MEMBERS FOR YEARS EXCHANGING INFORMATION TO HELP BUILD YOUR FAMILY HISTORY. MOST OF MY DIRECT ANCESTORS WERE BUILT BY AN EARLY PIONEER TO FINDAGRAVE WHO POSTED ALL OF THE INFORMATION I REQUESTED AND TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO IMBEDDED LINKS BEFORE THE RELATIONSHIP LINK FEATURE WAS ADDED. OVER TIME I HAVE TALKED HIM OUT OF A FEW OF THEM, BUT NOW SEEMS TO HAVE MOVED TO FLORIDA AND FOUND SOMETHING BETTER TO DO WITH HIS TIME. [I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU BERN] PUH-LEEZE DON'T OBSESS ABOUT OWNING THE MEMORIALS OF EXTENDED FAMILY.

|Anna O'Quinn Richter||RE: Mattie May Faucette Jennings|
What a nice note! Thank you so much. My 'research' consisted of reading her husband's obit closely and looking for his first wife-so I can't claim any great flashes of brilliance on this one. Still it's fun to make such connections and your note made my day.
|Elizabeth Reed||Thank you.|
Thanks for the info on Minnie Kelly. All edits have been processed.
|Robert & Dolly||Glen Bartles|
Thank you for the info and all of your great work on Find a grave
|Debbie Lang||RE: Hamal Franklin Emery|
Thank you so much.
|LADONNA SANDERS||George Sanders|
I just thought you should know that Fred and Opal Etta Edgar Clevenger are NOT the biological parents of George Sanders. We have confirmed that through the Jackson County court.
Your posting that they were was absolutely irresponsible of you. You have way too much time on your hands to go around speculating and making up stories.
|LADONNA SANDERS||George William Sanders|
I did not mean for you to remove information about George.
I am merely asking if you have access to information I do not, i.e. his birth records? I would be very interested to know your sources because I could answer some questions about his adoption.
I would appreciate any information you have. Thank you.

Rebecca Ann Nethery Bowles is my great grandmother and I was told by someone on here that she is in the 4 generations rule,so why can't I get the transfer,is there a problem?
|Betty Cole||RE: Rebecca Ann Neathery Bowles|
I was sent this message by someone on here,so why can't I get my transfer?
Your great-grandparents are within the 4 generations rule,so if the person does not transfer the listing to you,let me know and I will do it for you.

|Estelle Clark||Rebecca Neathery Cole Bowles|
Here is a copy of the message I sent to Ms. Cole who established a duplicate memorial for Rebecca Bowles person. Thanks!
Betty: There already was a memorial for Rebecca Ann Neathery Bowles with photos of her marker. Since your request is a duplicate, perhaps you can ask 4losthistory (by clicking on her name on the original memorial for Rebecca) and ask her to amend the name to show her as Rebecca Ann Neathery Cole Bowles. That way there will be no duplication to confuse further researchers.
