Please read Find-a-Grave's official transfer policy before making transfer requests:

"First: Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management 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 will 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 must 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 will 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."

Hello, I also am doing William O'Bright's family and thought you would like to know that William's father Anton/Anthony in Canada came from Germany and his last name was Obrecht. Anton changed it to O'Bright in Canada then went back to Obrecht later in his life. Some of his children went by Obrecht and some by O'Bright. I have also seen the ' left out on some O'Bright cemetery stones, not sure why. I know in the census it has been spelled incorrectly at times. Hope this helps clear things up Susan
P.S. Anton or Anthony is my 2nd Great Granfather

You are a treasure, my friend!!

Thank you for the research you did and for letting me know. I took the birth records you added as gospel. :) After all, the parents should know what the child's name is and how they want to spell it.

Thank you, again! Have a great Sunday - tomorrow it's back to work!!

Warm regards,
judy aka High Plains :)

Thank you, again, Achisha.

These links were all from edits sent to me. I usually only check to see if it is possible by date of birth of parents and date of birth of child. Most days I get over 75 edits linking husbands, parents, etc. for memorials about which I have no knowledge other than what I have already put on the memorials. I so wish people would check their facts before shooting off an edit.

Best wishes,
judy :)

Thank you for the correct parents - the joys of having edits come in!! (Not yours - the links for parents, etc. were send in by another Find A Grave member)

Hi, Achisa I have been researching the Lockhart family since 2010 and I noticed that you have listed under Joan Marie that her maiden name was Lockhart. It is actually was Darroch. Her mother Irene May Darroch was a Lockhart.
Just thought you may want to know for accuracy. Thank you very much for posting this memorial.

Hi, Achisa,
Thank you SO very much for taking the photo of the grave stone of Alexander Eddie. I appreciate it so very much. Thank you for adding it to James' memorial as well.
It was so kind of you, and I thank you for your volunteer work!
All the best,
