Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

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 HE 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.

Thank you for transferring Jesse to me. I'll work on it this weekend and let you know when it's done. Would you also be kind enough to transfer his wife Frances Moore to me and I'll make the appropriate changes. I'll also follow up with Mark Morrow on Mary Brown Dickens Graves and with Cindy McCachern on Harriet Phillips Dickens Webb. FYI - Frances was my 3rd great-grand aunt.
Thanks,
Steve

RE: Margaret E Brafford #95651396
I don't have a copy of it- it was before I was smart enough to document and scan everything I found. I started genealogy when I was in my late 20s and didn't realize how important it was to copy every thing I found. It was one of those family passed down things...just let it go- the E is what shows on all the records so that is just fine. I have the name correct in my tree and that is what matters to me. She was very young when she passed of pneumonia so she is probably not remembered by very many and the relatives I got the info from are long gone.

Again, thanks for ALL that you do and keeping accurate info out there.I am sure that we will run into each other again as it appears we don't live too far apart.

RE: Margaret E Brafford #95651396
hi.....she is my second cousin twice removed....census records and death certificate just have the initial "e". Family Bible has middle name listed as Edna. That is all I have to go on and I totally understand. I have about 4 people that constantly send me bad info- I have had to report them to Find A Grave several times. One has even been told not to contact me any more. If you want to add that is great- if not I really do understand. Thanks for all that you do- I see your work all over!!!!

First, I want to research the information you submitted for Mary Lay at St. Stephens Cemetery, just because I'm curious. Main reason for this email how do you create the memorials you have posted? I'm certain you haven't visited all the burial sites for your creations and am just curious where you obtain the names.

Jesse Dickins
I have posted to Jesse’s memorial a photo of his will which is clearly signed “Jesse Dickins”. The codicil indicates that he died after April 1838. In addition, my respected fellow family researcher Terri O’Neill has informed me that the grave markers for Jesse and Frances were placed by Ralph Stanford in the mid 1900s. He also placed markers that contain erroneous information in other family cemeteries (Stephen Moore and Stanford).

Robert Dickins #35952748
The family bible contains a pencil annotation that he died in 1808. However, his descendants filed a petition in Person County court in the June session of 1804 requesting his lands be divided. The petition states that he died sometime in 1803. Here is a link to the petition images:

RE: Jesse/Jessie Dickins/Dickens #35953104
If you are interested I can send you the link to the will of Jesse's son Stephen Moore - who also used the spelling Dickins. I have not found his grave but his will is dated 1850 and matches his enumeration in the 1850 census. Regards, Steve.
