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.

Ellen McManus Scanlan
Hello Achisha,
I have included the Baptism record from familysearch on Ellen's memorial page. I do see your point about the census records for the actual date of birth. Also, there is a possibility that this is a baptism record for "the first" Ellen Mcmanus who passed away, then Thomas & Margaret named their second daughter Ellen again (after her grandmother). Ellen's brother James also has a large difference in his baptism record & census records and the carving in his grave marker. Handle the discrepancy however you wish.
However, Ellen must have been born in Durham County, Ontario, because Thomas & Margaret McManus lived in Durham County before following Margaret's family (the Gainer's) to Wellington County about 1861 (this is the family story and is supported by three of their children's baptism records).
I wish I could find the actual gravestone for Ellen McManus Scanlan, but haven't after 4 visits.
And, as always, thank you for all of your hard work on the ancestors of Wellington County!

Hulda Wilkins Myers
Thank you sincerely for your work. Hulda was a mystery in my tree for years. With a clue that her daughter lived in Canada I was finally able to locate her. Very sad end for her but at least she has been found.

Saint Antony's
Hello Achisha,
I was wondering if you would like to have my St Antony Cemetery memorials transfered over to you? I managed to photograph and post most of them, and I do enjoy reading your work with those Wellington County settlers.

George & Dorothy Gooding
Hi Achisha,

Have transferred their memorials to you.

There was a photo which was pretty much unreadable but knowing her name, now I can make out the name of Mina Gooding, wife of George.

High Plains :)

RE: Geo. Gooding

Thank you SO much! No wonder it was confusing seeing as how he shaved a number of years off his age AND was married so many times.

Is he related to you? If you would like to manage his memorial I would transfer.

Best wishes,
High Plains :)

John McNeil
I found my husband's gg-grandfather's gravestone on this site. (John McNeil - b.1825 and d.1915) He was married to Margaret Smith. The second name on the gravestone is NOT his son John Thomas (b.1862 in Erin Ontario, who married Miss E. Johnson/USA, and his death is still unknown). The second name on the headstone is John's (1825) grandson, John McNeil (b.1890/91 in Wisconsin and died in 1928 Ontario, Canada), son of John Thomas.
I would love to see the info that you have provided to reflect this new information please. Thank you very much! Wendy

Elsie Triezenberg
I continually am fascinated by the biographies listed on Find A Grave. I was mesmerized by the life of Elsie Triezenberg in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I photograph markers in Riverside Cemetery regularly and many times get caught up in the life of those buried there. I found documentation for Elsie and her husband Harm in the Kalamazoo Gazette and am going there to read more about them. Are you interested in what I find?
