I have been working on my family tree for almost ten years and love the Find A Grave website.
Please use the Suggest a Correction feature under the Edit tab on memorials to send corrections, additional information or transfer requests. Please state your relationship in the SAC for any transfer requests. Also include memorial numbers for links that you wish to be added.
Please be patient. It may take me some time to make additions/correction/transfers especially during the nice weather.
The Find a Grave guidelines for Transfer Requests is as follows:
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses). Bulk surname requests should not be made.
Please note that it is considered bad form 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.
Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.
RE: Leona I have just started ancestry, and it has been so wonderful to know that my relatives' graves have been photographed and their memorials maintained by you and others like you! Can't thank you enough for all your work. My grandfather is buried somewhere else, but I will check. I am going crazy looking for Leona's parents' graves and I live in northern Michigan. In my notes it says that they are buried at Stewart Cemetery. Harvey Jackson Tooley (1847-1929) and Margaret Decker Tooley (1848-1937). Is there anyone I can contact who would know about them? Gradually,I will be picking up other relatives' memorials and will be in contact. Again, thank you for all your work! Linda
RE: George Washington Daniels Well, that's too bad, sorry to hear that. I would send an email to the Find-A-Grave organization and explain the situation. They can assist you in making deletions, transfers, corrections, etc.
MEAD/MEADE Hello, I have a question regarding Reuben Meade, Memorial #46275907, and Martha J. Mead, Memorial #7563620. Their last names on their headstones are spelled two different ways; however, I THINK they were husband and wife.
Maureen Trinley Hi. Maureen Trinley has on a few of her memorials a lot of genealogical information about the Dusey/Dusy family. I'd like to get in touch with her family with some questions. Do you have contact information for them? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Regards, Kevin
