Find A Grave Change
A friend told me about this chance a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent edits to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

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

Way easier for doing updates to names / dates / places / plot #s.

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

Transfer family graves please!
I sent a request in January to have 4 of my family members graves transfered to me. I also just placed a message on your phone. Please don't ignore this request. I want to be able to edit my family's memorial and link them to their parents and spouses.

I find it odd that many have asked to have their loved ones memorial pages transferred to them, and yet, you still have ownership? I have asked you myself through email, a couple months ago with no response. I see you have 830 added memorials, and you manage 830, so transfer is yet to happen in all of your time as a Find A Grave member. Not sure what the hang up is, but I see many have just duplicated the memorial pages. Sorry to hear you were fired from your Valley View job, hopefully you are not a bitter person, and your expression of love for Jesus Christ is genuine. I am leaving this message in hopes to help others who have asked, to not bother, and just create a new memorial. God Bless!

Family Memorial
Hi Rodney,

I want to go through and have all family memorials transferred to management so I can edit them at my leisure. I appreciate you posting them, but I like editing and adding information and would feel happier if they are managed by family. 1st one I'd like transfered to me is Dr. James Garland, Gibbs Cemetery. Grave #8907168

I'll let you know the other's separately.

Thanks for understanding. Sue Welton
(niece to Dr. Garland and the Garland family Historian)

Hi, Rodney...I just have to tell you that I absolutely love the photo you took of the Friends Cemetery in Newberg, Oregon - the one with the large bare tree. I have family in that cemetery and am delighted to post your photo with them. It has such character. I want to go there because of it! RoxAnne Sweany
