I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

Dear Jim,

I would appreciate it if you would transfer this memorial to me, as he is my great-great uncle. Thank you very much for recording his grave.

Hi Jim!
Find A Grave Memorial# 39747142

Hello "cousin!" I wondered if you could delete a photo for me on my Mom's memorial? You posted it for me in 2009 when I was new, and you were mentoring me. I can't delete it because you posted it for me. If you could delete the very last photo with the grave stone and the names of the children on it, I would appreciate it.

Mom's been gone 17 years today, on Mother's Day. Not my favorite day.
Hope you are doing well. I miss talking with you!
Thanks very much!

Hi Jim,

Please delete your picture from memorial #93791207 and repost it to memorial #85054916. The first memorial is a duplicate.

Mr Ferris,

And how did I place that photo on the wrong memorial?

I took that photo at that cemetery.
