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.

Clyde Cochran
Hi Abby, I noticed you had left a flower at Clyde's memorial at Woodland Cemetery, Pawnee, OK. I was wondering if you were related and knew if he was the son of John and Martha Collins Cochran. They had a son that would have been the age of this Clyde. John and Martha are buried in Howell County, MO, but they did live in Ok for a time.
Martha was my great aunt and I have been trying to locate all my grandpa's twelve sibling's children. It would not be possible to have the information I have if not for find a grave. What at great site.
Thanking you in advance for any light you my shed on this. Kathy

Hi Kay Smith here, My sister Linda and I were adopted at birth and reunited after we'll over 50 years. This is her adoptive Grandfather and Grandmother. If you are not related would you please transfer them to me. Linda depends on me to take of this as I am the one who searched and found her. It would mean a lot to the both of us.
Thank you

My name is Mary Ballard (maiden name Foell) my Dad was John Foell, he passed away last week April 7th, I was on and noticed you had added his grave on there, thank you for that. I read your bio, and you mentioned you sometimes have a personal connection to those graves that you post, did you know my Dad, or related at all?

I had posted my grandparents (Dad's parents) and Dad's infant brother, and other family members on a few years ago. Please let me know if you knew my Dad.

William Lewis Jordan
Abby Normal:

It seems we have a duplicate listing in William Jordan. I see by the dates that you had your listing in before me. However, I did not know that you had put William in Find A Grave.

William Lewis is my great great grandfather. I finally located his grave site in June of 2003.
I would like to have the maintenance of this grave. Maybe we can work something out.

I would not internally use your picture without giving you credit for the picture. I have removed your picture from my William Lewis entry and have entered one of my own when I first found his grave. I had these pictures long before I became a member of Find A Grave.

Thank you very much for this consideration.
