|Bio and Links|
I have recorded the birth date, death date, and last address of your family members. Now it is your turn to edit and enhance their memorials, for the enjoyment of future generations.|
Thank you so much to the people who generously donate their time and money to provide information, photographs, and floral contributions to people who may never be able to thank them. I especially appreciate those who remember this is much bigger than ourselves and consistently maintain their memorials in a professional manner, treating others volunteers in the respectful way in which they like to be treated.
The "Relationship Link" feature is an amazing way to link family members and build your family tree. You can link each memorial to his/her parent(s) and spouse(s). To use this feature:
1) Select "Edit" next to "Family Links" or
"Link Family Members" for first link
2) Type in (or copy and paste) the memorial number of the parent(s) or spouse(s) in the appropriate box.
3) Select "Save Changes"
FINDAGRAVE MEMORIAL TRANSFER POLICY
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 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 defintion. (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.
I HAVE HAD AN OVERABUNDANT AMOUNT OF BAD EXPERIENCES TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS TO MEMBERS WHO QUICKLY LOSE INTEREST AND ABANDON THE MEMORIALS I CREATED. WHEN I LOOK AT YOUR PROFILE AND I SEE YOU HAVE HAD HUNDREDS, OR THOUSANDS, OF MEMORIALS TRANSFERRED TO YOU, I WONDER ABOUT THE NECESSITY SINCE YOU ARE ONLY DIRECTLY DESCENDED FROM 30 PEOPLE ACCORDING TO FINDAGRAVE GUIDELINES. ONE TRANSFER REQUEST CAME WITH A NOTE ABOUT ALL OF THE BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SHE HAD TO POST WHICH CONSISTED OF "THIS WAS MY FIFTH GREAT GRANDPAPPY WHO I LOVED VERY MUCH". THAT, SOMEWHAT SUSPECT, BIOGRAPHY COULD HAVE BEEN POSTED ON A FLOWER TRIBUTE. I RESEARCH ALL CORRECTIONS SUBMITTED TO ME FOR ACCURACY BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT OF MISINFORMATION AND FAMILY TREES WHICH ARE ALL MESSED UP ON RESEARCH SITES. ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS I HAVE BUILT TWO SEPARATE FAMILIES IN FINDAGRAVE SO THAT THEY WILL BACKFEED CORRECTLY INTO ANCESTRY. I AM TICKLED TO RECEIVE NEW EDITS AND LINKS, AND AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA EXCITED ABOUT PICTURES AND STORIES TO PERSONALIZE THE MEMORIALS. AND I AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA UNHAPPY WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO GET ME TO REMOVE INFORMATION IN ORDER TO REWRITE THEIR HISTORY TO PLEASE THEM.
I AM AN UNBIASED CARETAKER WILLING TO POST ALL THE DOCUMENTED INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE AND HAVE WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH OTHER FINDAGRAVE MEMBERS FOR YEARS EXCHANGING INFORMATION TO HELP BUILD YOUR FAMILY HISTORY. MOST OF MY DIRECT ANCESTORS WERE BUILT BY AN EARLY PIONEER TO FINDAGRAVE WHO POSTED ALL OF THE INFORMATION I REQUESTED AND TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO IMBEDDED LINKS BEFORE THE RELATIONSHIP LINK FEATURE WAS ADDED. OVER TIME I HAVE TALKED HIM OUT OF A FEW OF THEM, BUT NOW SEEMS TO HAVE MOVED TO FLORIDA AND FOUND SOMETHING BETTER TO DO WITH HIS TIME. [I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU BERN] PUH-LEEZE DON'T OBSESS ABOUT OWNING THE MEMORIALS OF EXTENDED FAMILY.

|Gloria Tune||Photo at the Minnis Cemetery, North Carolina|
I was taking a look at some of my Pickard ancestors and came across a photo you submitted for John Henry Pickard who died in 1812, Find A Grave Memorial# 18422251.
I'm curious about the photo, because you can see the date of death as 1868 & it is also located at this website, where you can view it even clearer....
Could it have been placed here incorrectly & should be with John Moore Pickard, Find A Grave Memorial# 18423778 who is located in this same cemetery?
Thanks for taking a look and for your work here at this website,
Gloria J. Tune
5th g. granddaughter of John & Peggy Whatley Pickard of Orange County, NC

Dave, I have linked Edmund's and Fannie Widen children-Elmer, Ralph, Joseph Widen-they are buried in Holy Cross Cemetery.
I still need to find burials for Marie (March 14, 1889) and Elsie Virginia (Widen) Kingsmill-she died October 9, 1959-San Diego.
Let me know on Hazel's maiden name, etc.
I hope this helps your research.

Have a Merry Christmas and thank you for all the work you have done on the Sykes family.
|RTerry||Re: New edits|
If you go to your Contributor page and look in the upper right corner, you will see a new tab "edits (#)". The # is the number of edits you have waiting. Click on it and you will see all the edits others have done on your memorials. You have the option to Accept, Reject, or Ignore each one. It works quite nicely. Accept allows the edit to be completed. Ignore leaves the edit on your list for later. Reject I have not used yet, so I don't know what it does. The thing I don't like is you aren't notified there are edits waiting - I had to figure it out. (by the way, you should have some edits, since I have sent you a few)

|Jan Sanford||Elizabeth (Smith) Surber|
Thanks loads for where you got the info.....I just sent for a "Gospel Messenger" obit for her. She evidently isn't the right Elizabeth (Kreider) Surber.Thanks again for the fast answer...
|Jan Sanford||Elizabeth (Smith) Surber|
Hi... Can you tell me where you got the maiden name of Smith for Elizabeth Surber,# 35219016, wife of Joseph Martin Surber ? I have her listed as Elizabeth KREIDER ?
Please contact me by email = firstname.lastname@example.org.
|W Yoder||Thomas Scott Mother|
Connection made. Thanks for making a page for her. It was challenging trying to tie in all those links to Chestnut Ridge graves but I did what I could.

I can imagine you must be extremely busy with all of the memorials that you manage. I just want to acknowledge the work you do by sending this quick note of appreciation for updating his memorial and linking him to his parents and spouse. You're fantastic. A+++
