Bio Photo Please take the time to read the Q & A section under Contributor Tools.

Please find below a small part of the Q & A's that deal exclusively with transfers and corrections.
 
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-directrelatives (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 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 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.

Would you be so kind as to transfer my mother's memorial to me? I do have some additions to make to her memorial.

Thank you,

I have posted the gravestone picture for your memorials for Janelle Marie Walker Hill (Find A Grave memorial number 144844058) & for Alfred W. "Al" Hill (Find A Grave memorial number 89389711). This monument (and where the ashes are buried) is in the Oak Grove Cemetery, Baxter County, Arkansas.

My name is Cheryl Moore, and Jimmy Don was my son. I uploaded a memorial for him on the same day as you did this one, #133093938. There are a lot of errors in yours, but also quite a bit of info that I didn't have. I would appreciate this one being transferred to me, and would like to request your permission to add some of the newspaper articles to mine. I had never seen them. Your consideration of this transfer is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Cheryl Moore

I was noticing a lot of the family members such as siblings and parents are not linked to her. I am her niece and was wandering if there is a way to get them all linked especially since different people manage their pages? I could gather all the memorial numbers if necessary if this can be done. I just don't know how to do it. My email address is marvilla1976@yahoo.com if you would like to message me directly.

Thanks,

Marvilla

Hi Abby, my name is Stephanie, I am the granddaughter of Jimmie Ozbun, I was wondering you had anymore info on her or could point in the direction to find more info. I don't even know what she looked like. Anything would be appreciated. Thank you

Thank you so much Abby for all that you are doing.
The above is my mother who passed recently. I have added a couple of pictures of her and my Dad.
I have also added my Dad and linked him to her as his spouse.
I have been a member for approximately a year but just now beginning to work on my family sites.

Thanks again.
