Stupidest thing I've heard from a Findagrave person trying to get out-of-guidelines transfers:|
"you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar"
But you catch even more flies with a load of crap.
and thank you KittyStar* for praying me but I'd rather you used that time to actually contribute to the website.
More than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials (except those where the cemetery is unknown) but I am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to growing misunderstanding of what Find A Grave is about by those discovering the site for the first time.
The time members have put into their efforts working together and sharing information compiling an historical record - not a genealogical one - is not up for grabs based on same-name surname or lineage and I will not do any of these type of transfers. I will continue to transfer memorials within Find A Grave guidelines and those that have been sponsored.
If you have more memorials managed than contributed, it will be noted.(ie If you manage 300 interments but have personally only added 4, the other 296 have been transferred to you. This is not cool.)
From Find A Grave FAQ:
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, or siblings. Bulk surname requests should not be made.
To add information
Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on the 'Suggest a correction' (SAG) link on the Edit page. Follow the instructions to submit your correction.
Please do NOT suggest corrections for multiple people on a SAG. You need to use the SAG link for EACH person so that I receive the link to the individual and there will be no confusion.
Favorite correction format:
Name: First Middle (Maiden) Last
Born: M D Y, City, County, State
Died: M D Y, City, County, State
Father: Name #
