Thank you so much for the transfer of these memorials to me to manage. I will take good care of them.

This family group is related to me through the "Watkins" family, and I guess, I feel "close" to them.

While I am aware of Find A Grave's transfer guidelines of only transferring to spouses, parents, brothers and sisters, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, grandparents, and great-grandparents, I guess I disagree with it. I think those people should come first to transfer to, but, I think, if they are not available/aware of the memorials, they should be transferred to other "relatives" who are aware. I think it is very important that memorials be managed by interested "family" members.

I also think it is important to transfer memorials to "interested" family members, because if someone has a question or wants more information on a memorial or family, it is more likely that a family member will know about the family, than someone who kindly just posts the memorial.

Specifically, in the Walker family case, I know how they are all related and I was the one who provided, in most cases, the family links and exact place and date of birth and death, if known. By only making the changes, and not acknowledging who linked them (and the only way I can think of doing that is by transferring the memorials), no one will know to contact me for questions on additional info on the family.

If you read my bio, you will see that I have been doing genealogy for years and have known the Walker family place of death for years (as thousands of others). I am merely a "late adopted" of technology and a contributor to Find A Grave.

I want to thank you for posting on Find A Grave. Most all my grave pictures were taken pre-digitization.

I have numerous obits, land records, etc., on my Ontario and Detroit area families. I have pretty much decided I will only post obits and additional bio info to memorials I manage, so that I can make changes, etc. to them.

Are you located in Ontario, and if so where, if I may ask? I am trying to enter as many of my Ontario people as I can, but that is quite a task. I have had to travel to various genealogy libraries throughout the years to look at the Ontario cemetery transcriptions to find people. I have purchased several, just takes a lot of time to enter everyone.

If I can help you let me know. I own the complete cemetery transcription collection of Norfolk and Middlesex Counties; Hamilton Cemetery in Wentworth County and Greenwood Cemetery and St. George's Anglican in Halton County. My concern is entering "my people" and getting them linked and straightening up other peoples entries that effect "my family." If I have "significant" bio info to add, or feel the memorials are "closely" related to me, then I ask for a transfer. Please don't ask me to enter all of the memorials in those cemeteries on Find A Grave. I really won't live that long!!!!

Again, thanks for the transfers and for posting on Find A Grave.
