|Please follow these Find A Grave guidelines when requesting the addition of an obituary to a memorial:|
Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.
Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright.
Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed."
Please follow these Find A Grave guidelines when requesting a transfer:
[I will transfer memorials only if the request follows the Find A Grave policy [this is a direct quote, including the words and sentences in bold.]
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 [that's ME] 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 definition. (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.
NOTE: 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.

I AM the author of all these obits that I have sent you. I also have permission to use all the pictures I have posted.
I have buried or cremated all the people that I have sent to you.
I am well aware of Find-A-Grave policies.
I do not like to see incomplete memorials when additional information is available.
With all the memorials you have created, you can expect a lot of additional information to come your way.

|BethAnn Decker||Thank you|
Roger, I can't tell you what it means to me to have you list my father, PFC George S. Williams.
I didn't even know this site existed until I was doing some look up on the Vanderbilt family tree.
It means more than you'll ever know to have Dad listed...thank you...small words, but it's all I know.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
A grieving daughter.

99954768 is the memorial for PVT. J. P. Lawson, Company H 13th Tennessee Cav. I missed his grave the last time I visited this cemetery because it's not a Veterans marker and it's broken and was covered with grass clippings. It's in pretty bad shape and I thought I'd better get a picture before it fell apart. I was surprised when I cleaned off the grass and saw it was a 13th Tennessee Cav. grave.
