****************************
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.
******************************
Steward for these memorials when I pass
on is "RTerry" #46537864 .
******************************
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.

Joanne O'Briant
WILMA O'BRIANT
Dear 4losthistory,
My name is Joanne O'Briant and the Poole - O'Briant cemetery in Person Co., NC is our family.
We had family clear cut and survey this cemetery and
a family member maintaining it from NC.
Wilma is not in our line and I don't believe she is buried there.
Could you please tell me where you obtained the confirmation of her burial in this cemetery?
There are other O'Briant family cemeteries in Person County and I feel she is buried in one of the other cemeteries in Person County.
Would you please research this and remove her name from your posting. Thank you.
Please feel free to contact me.
Most Sincerely,
Joanne O'Briant - CT

Great response you posted:

This is a huge fabric we are weaving and I love sharing ideas with other researchers. It is frustrating when I occasionally get fussed at by those who believe the memorial page should be blank, but until they provide a biography I feel my memorials tell a story. Sure fun to see them backfeed on to Ancestry.

RE: Lennie Mae Baldwin Kimrey-29378492
Thank you for the information and your help :) I'm sure those are her parents with the death certificate info. So I don't think there is a need to remove the links. I guess there could be a possibility of adoption in there too since the daughter is not with her. Maybe the census taker didn't realize she was married. I found the 1940 too. I do think it has Lennie and not Dennie. Not sure where the O came from!! I sent it a correction for it to be Lennie anyways so people can find it easier when they go to look for her. I linked her husband's parents. Finding them on the census is a nightmare!! Finally found them in 1900 listed as Kimsey, transcription error of Kimrey.
Thanks again!!!

Lennie Mae Baldwin Kimrey-29378492
Can you please look over Mrs. Kimrey's memorial page and help me figure out why the 1900 census lists her birthdate as Jul 1898 and her headstone lists Dec. 11, 1898. Also, I found her marriage record and it lists Marriage Date: 31 Dec 1916 but she was living with her parents in 1920 and listed as single. I don't know if I have the wrong records or if the record dates are off. Thanks for your help trying to figure this out. :)

George William Willcox
I just added a photo of the gravestone for my grandfather, George William Willcox. As you can see, his death was in 1944, not 1954. I do not know how to edit the Find a grave website, so I am hoping you can do that for me, or tell me what I need to do to edit it. Thanks so much!

I added the information you sent. I was meaning to add the marriage info but got side tracked :) I had already corrected in the note area about her husband as Ellen must have posted what her death certificate had on it. I wrote [sic] [recte Ewell L. Watts] next to the name J C Watts. If that is not how you want it please let me know.
Thank you!! :)

RE: Adele Cates West #43205637
Thank you for the prayers for Ellen.

Also, thank you for the death information. I didn't know that was available on familysearch.org or I could have looked myself. Sorry I have to bother you for it.
Thanks again!!

I am the one that is doing Ellen's edits while she is ill. Could you please send me your source for her death location that you are requesting? You requested Manhattan, New York County, NY and I can not seem to find any records.
Thank you very much!!! :)
