Please send proof in a document form for all edits or requests.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives only within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Non-direct relatives relatives such as aunts, uncles, cousins and beyond are not required transfers.

Any information needed to be added to a memorial that I manage can be sent through the SAC provision after clicking on the edit tab.

Memorials created for living
Hello Eileen,
We have got to stop meeting like this,LOL. I am going to buy a better computer(I swear)

Anyway I am sending you this tid bid from Find A Grave guidelines,because I too, have been contacted for making new memorials for people who have already been listed on Find A Grave while they are alive.

Is it acceptable to add a memorial for someone who is still living?
Please try to avoid it. In general, we do not encourage adding memorials for individuals who are still living. We do realize, however, that when transcribing a cemetery, it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. Memorials for individuals who are alive will be removed when requested (the exception being for 'famous' individuals who already have a burial location in place). You are always welcome to create a 'pre-need' memorial for yourself, if you would like, provided that you have a pre-need headstone already in place in a cemetery. Given these exceptions, a memorial created after death will be preferred over a pre-need memorial.

So the memorial made after death is the preferred one just like you thought,unless you have made a pre-need one for yourself. Take care.

RE: Louis Newkirk
Hi and thanks for your reply. I will make the corrections and then remove the photos. I was not aware that I couldn't use them. I will send a request for someone in the area to take a photo of my Uncle's grave for me.

RE: Grover Allen
Well you should not have started a new cemetery when one was already set up. That is what you would tell me in a heartbeat.. And I have not got one message from you asking me to post a photo on any of your memorials. I have posted photos on memorials where the people are in the wrong cemetery and after they get the photo they care less about moving the person to the correct cemetery. I will keep it in mind not to post photos on no more of your memorials if that is the way you want it.

I noticed from Ancestry that you have created a memorial for my cousin Louis (Butch) Newkirk at #156949356. I created one in 2010 because my Aunt (his mom) needed one as well. Can we combine or something? Are you related? I am trying to find his sisters Lana, Joy and Mel. Please reply. My memorial is Memorial# 48440115

no stone markers
I do see that down here,even in established cemeteries. Sometimes the church will give you a list of their recorded burials,but even then it is not 100%.

There is no way of knowing for sure that someone is not buried in cemetery just because no stone could be found. You are right that many can't afford stone. There were many in my family cem in Rogers that did not have a stone. My grandma knew everyone that was buried there while she was living. and she used to point out the unmarked graves. Sometimes the grave would be noticable and sunken and other times you could never tell.

When I put out photo request and am told that the person is not buried there because no stone was found,I make a note on the memorial,but do not delete the memorial.I feel like family records,church records,death certificates,obits are extremely helpful in finding burial sites and should all be used and are often more reliable than a stranger walking an unknown cemetery and making a determination after a few minutes that someone is absolutely not buried there. Walking and recording a cemetery is very important to this site,but other methods ensure the accuracy of our data.

I want to thank you for all of your stone pictures. You have dedicated hours of your time documenting the many cemeteries of Wolfe and your relatives graves that came to Ohio from the mountains.

Take care,dear cousin
