Bio and Links
I have been tracing my family for many years and now that I have found Find A Grave, I am trying to link families together from grave to grave. I just love doing this because it seems to bring a closer to the family when they are finally linked together. It is not just a lonely grave lost in a cemetery somewhere. A lot of the reason I do this is so that my children will be able to have a connection with their ancestors. I have a large family, 33 grandchildren and as of this date (March 2014) I have 75 great grandchildren. Who would have ever believed it!

New to Genealogy and researching Tannahills
I found what I believe is your website, Marilyns Genealogy Adventures, is that yours? If so I would love to ask you a few questions.

And I am a descendant on Glen Ray Tannahills. Lillian Luree was my great grandmother.

Hello Marilyn,

First, I want to assure you that I take my stewardship of memorial pages seriously, and always link and update them promptly as requested. I will be happy to create any links and update memorial pages as suggested, always giving credit and a link back to the contributor's profile page.

Secondly, I prefer to follow Find A Grave's transfer guidelines, although I sometimes transfer to direct relatives outside of the four generations, or to close relatives, ie: cousins, nieces or nephews within a generation or two, or when an individual dies childless.

The following is from Find A Grave's frequently asked questions.

"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-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."

Unless the memorial pages are your for direct relatives, I prefer not to transfer them.
