"Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren".
"The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes." ~Jim Tipton, creator of Find A Grave.
I will gladly transfer within the guidelines and am more than happy to make corrections and additions to those memorials which fall outside of the guidelines. If memorials I've transferred are stripped of the obit or photos, I won't transfer anymore to that person. I do not transfer "all" of any name. Please use virtual cemeteries for the purpose of collecting "all" your relatives. Please use the edit key for transfers and changes or corrections.
Photos I take may be used, no need to ask permission, but please give me credit, as FAG photo takers are volunteers who provide their own gas and time to go take photos. Please put "Headstone photo taken by FAG Volunteer, Kathy #47737776" in the description box. Thank you, in advance.
I include the newspaper or funeral home when mentioned for future relatives who are trying to build their family trees. Even though other FAG members feel it is an easy way to "beat me" to the obituary. Shame on you. If you don't have the time to enter more than the date born and the date they died, maybe you need a new hobby. Every persons life should be remembered for more than just a couple dates. A name with "unk" "unk" for the dates is no memorial at all. My purpose is a full and complete memorial.
Robert D. Clark memorial Kathy, thank you for transferring my dad's memorial to me. If I may make a suggestion maybe you could wait a bit longer to post the memorials of people who recently passed. It was quite a shock for me when I came upon my dad's memorial. It hasn't been that long and I'm still missing him a lot.
RE: Elgin Zuhlke Hi Kathy, I am referring to the large space at the end of some of the lines of text, not the paragraph spacing. I also leave a line space between paragraphs for readability.
Spaces at the end of the lines happen during copy and pasting text. The process sometimes adds a carriage return, making the text go down to the next line. Backspacing will get rid of the unneeded carriage return.
