DEFINITION OF A MEMORIAL: A memorial is a statue, holiday or statement in honor of an event or someone who has passed away.
TRANSFER REQUESTS are made in accordance with Find A Grave guidelines. READ THE GUIDELINES! Your relationship MUST be included in transfer requests. I confirm a relationship before transferring a memorial.
TRANSFERS, UPDATES AND CORRECTIONS must be made with the SAC EDIT tab on each memorial. Requests made via personal email or FAG public message board will NOT be honored. FAG gives 30-days to respond to requests. Requests should be made in a courteous and respectful manner. PLEASE and THANK YOU go a long way.
BIO'S and links should NOT be removed from transferred memorials. Please be respectful of the time and effort that goes into writing an individual biography. Individuals who do this will be refused future transfer requests.
DUPLICATIONS: Duplicate memorials are not created intentionally.
FIND A GRAVE GUIDELINES: I do not 100% agree with the "old" guidelines created by the founders, and have only quoted, or referred to the guidelines that I support. I am hopeful Ancestry.com will make some positive changes in the future.
HARRASSMENT AND THREATS: Periodically, I received an undesirable communication threatening me personally or professionally. Those types of communications will be forwarded to FAG management for their consideration. Members can BANNED for those behaviors. As a result, I have removed my email contact information and message board.
PRE-NEED MEMORIALS: I do add these memorials when I transcribe from cemetery records. My objective is to make sure these memorials are managed by family members and not an OBITUARY HOUNDS who often hold the memorials hostage and won't transfer them.
I have once again removed the message board due to members making change requests on the board.
CHANGE REQUESTS VIA MY EMAIL WILL BE IGNORED! My email is my BUSINESS email and is for professional research inquiries, and estimates, only!
