|Bio and Links|
I enjoy genealogy and have been doing it on and off for the past 25 years. Our group - Cemetery Seekers (cemeteryseeker.org) are currently working in reading each cemetery in the counties listed below and entering information from the actual reading of the cemetery. Those counties include Allen County, IN, Adams County, IN ( I am the Co-Coordinator for INGenWeb for this county,) DeKalb County, IN, Noble County, Whitley County, and Wells County, IN. Also am co-coordinator for Jay Co with INGenWeb.|
I follow the guidelines set by FindAGrave. If you do not meet the guidelines, please do not request a tranfer. If you want to have information added to the memorial, please send me a request through the "edit" button.
Editing & Correcting Memorial Information
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-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) are NOTrequired 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.
Also, please be patient as I get a lot of requests per day and sometimes it takes a couple of days to get through all the emails. Thanks for understanding.
Remember, we all need to do our part in sharing this vital information for future generations to come - whether it be to transcribe a cemetery, photograph or volunteer at your library to help preserve our heritage.
I apologize but do not have time for personal research. All the information that I have is on the memorial. Please do not send me emails requesting more information.
