I'm happy to transfer any memorials of people I'm not related to.
FIRST please read the FAQs here: Transfers
Then click on the EDIT tab at the top right corner of the memorial and then click
"Suggest any other correction or addition". This will generate an e-mail from Find A Grave with links to the memorial and your member page... less chance for errors this way.
I'm only human and I make mistakes (especially when my "Coffee Low-Level Warning Light" is blinking); so any Edits or additions are gladly welcomed. ^_^
For corrections/additional facts for a memorial,
see here: Corrections
Then click on the EDIT tab at the top right corner of the memorial. It's easy to make edits to Dates/Places, Family Links, Name, Plot/GPS location, and Marker Transcription. For Bio info or to notify me of a duplicate, you still need to click "Suggest any other correction or addition".

She is buried with her first husband, Rihel but at the time of death her last name would have been Soles. her 2nd husband. What is the proper way to list her. This is why I have her as Rihel-Soles. Because the headstone is Rihel.

Thank you for transfer.
|Patty Shreve||RE: Arlene Getchell Anderson|
Rich: You are so right about losing touch so easily. Had I noticed when you requested the photo of Carl and the passing of Arlene, I wouldn't have said anything - sorry, didn't mean to get on my soapbox. :-)

Hi Rich, I have requested F.A.G. to delete the duplicate memorial # 103695453 twice and still there it sits. I also sent a request to contributor Jennifer to reconnect the daughter to the correct memorial and the system won't let me re-send the edit again. Any suggestions?
|Patty Shreve||RE: Carl Raymond Anderson|
Yes, I have her headstone photo as well. I would recommend that, in the future, you request both husband and wife (if appropriate). I normally take photos of everyone around the request - just in case. Since these headstones are somewhat distant from each other - another person might have come home and think they'd done a good job to find that - oops - they have to make another trip. :-)
Hi,Sorry about that,I was not thinking about the grave photo. Hope you can get another one. Kay

In case you have a connection with Ralph Pearce
I transferred his memorial to you, if you do not wish to have control feel free to transfer back. We are not related to him.
