Bio Photo Please take the time to read the Q & A section under Contributor Tools.

Please find below a small part of the Q & A's that deal exclusively with transfers and corrections.
 
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
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 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-directrelatives (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.

Hello Abby, I noticed that you created and have left a flower twice at Olevia's memorial. She was my Aunt, I am just curious as to if you knew her and how?

Please transfer his memorial Memorial# 136015964 to my account
flowergirl (#47181641. This is my brother-in-law. Also, please delete all siblings except Howard D. Kisner on James memorial and should be only James on Howard's memorial. I've tried to do this on others you have transferred to me.

Thanks so much. Patsy E. Kisner

Transfer
Find A Grave Memorial# 135937575 Please transfer my husbands memorial to me. His name is Howard D. Kisner. There is a Harold also listed, but I believe this to be an error.

Clyde Cochran 19280964
Hello Abby, I noticed that you had left a flower at Clyde's memorial and was wondering if you knew anything about his parents. My great aunt, Martha Cochran, had a son Clyde born about the same year and I was curious if you might know if this Clyde is their son. Martha's husband was John Cochran and they are buried at Union Grove Cemetery in Howell County, West Plains, MO. I have been able to locate all of their children with the exception of Clyde and the two youngest children, Jay and Charlotte. Kathy
