Bio Photo FAQ's: If you are new or if you have never read the FAQ's page please treat yourself. FAQ's are located within "Help with Find A Grave" found on the left side of your screen under Actions. It is just under "Add Burial Records ".

EDITS: Requesting additions/changes to a memorial - ALWAYS use the "Edit" tab found in the upper right hand corner of the memorial. then select "Suggest a Correction" feature to submit information.

New "Automated" system for "Suggest A Correction/
Submit an Edit" process deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You will now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

A much easier way for doing updates to names / dates / places / plot #s / links.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

TRANSFERS: Please use the edit button on each memorial when requesting transfers. This will make it easier for me and provide me with all of the numbers I need to complete the transfer.


In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial transfer requests will be honored for direct relatives within four generations only as set forth by FAG. This would be your:


You must provide your relationship.

I abide by these guidelines to keep things simple.

Transfers & Edits
This is the message I get when I try to link my father with his parents:

"We can not proceed because of the reason(s) listed below. Please press the back button in your browser, correct the problem(s) and try again.
There is already a pending relationship information edit for this memorial.
The pending edit was submitted by Phil & Donna Whitaker.
The pending edit will be proccessed within 4 day(s) (Jan 8, at the latest)."

Therefore I cannot do any editing while the memorial for Arnold P. Martin while the edit is pending.

Thank you so much for making the changes to her memorial. The Snider Family, of which I am a descendant, is a little tricky to find and link.

Please release your edit of the memorial for Arnold P. Martin. I am trying to add information and is pending information from you. Arnold was my father, and I created his memorial.

Thanks for explaining that. Yes she is dead and she never remarried. My cousins in OK told me she was buried in Sunny Lane, so I just assumed that she was next to her husband of so many years. I will call the cemetery tomorrow and ask them. They died almost 40 years apart, maybe the family did not know there was a plot for her. Strange...................

Hello, Thank you for posting my uncle on FAQ. In a note you put on his page, you said, "Plot: Next to Mildred Ray (no death date for her)" Mildred is his wife and I have searched and searched but cannot find a page for her. I would be happy to create one for her, I just did not want to duplicate. Can you verify that she does not have a page already? Thanks! Karen Hamilton

Bobby Dean Martin
Dear Whitakers,

I am Bobby Dean Martin's niece. I would like for you to transfer the sponsorship of his page to me. My father was Arnold Paul Martin, Bobby Dean's oldest brother and his memorial is on find-a-grave. I don't know how to do a transfer, even though I'm a member of find-a-grave.

Thank You,

Patricia Martin

I am the great great grandaughter of Julius Floyd Strickland And Mary Elizabeth Barber. The great grand daughter of their son Leander Walton Strickland and Fannie Woods, and grand daughter of his son Charles Luther Strickand Sr. I understand the guide lines. If you can not transfer them to me then can you correct the wrong information and add the information that is missing? I just want to see that our family is documented right with all their information. I only ask for transfer because I figured it would be easier sense i already had the information for me to update them rather than trying to send it all to you.
