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."

RE: Ann (Davidson) Allan
No problem. I was actually researching Ann's daughter, Ann (Allan) McQueen, who died in Vancouver (I've submitted an edit to get her linked into the family as well). I appreciate all the work you've done on the Allans and McQueens in Elora Cemetery.

RE: Plots @ Elora Cemetery
Hello Achisa: Yes, there is a map of the cemetery with alpha-numerical coding of graves. However, the coding you have used does not match the cemetery map nor the records in the municipal office. I was at the cemetery and the workers told me they do not understand the coding as shown on these records. I then went to the municipal office to have some grave sites checked. They told me they often get people coming into their office looking for graves and indicated the information in FindAGrave is not the municipal system. They gave me the corrected information for these graves and a map that shows the location of all graves. I would be happy to share the information and map with you. You might also want to go the municipal office to check for yourself. Thanks for considering the possibility that there may be an unsolved problem here.

Duplicate postings
Good Morning Achisha

I have come across three duplicate listings that involve your memorials.
1) Martha Foster Short your Find A Grave No. 91663827
2) Frederick Ross Short your Find A Grave no. 91663816
3) Melissa McDermott Foster your Find A Grave No. 67167829
The duplicates are created by M. Burnett (a close family member).
1) Martha Foster Short Find A Grave No. 117825782
2) Frederick Ross Short Find A Grave No. 117825969
3) Melissa McDermott Foster No. 117831718
Yours are the original postings but the duplicates are very detailed and contain a lot more information.
Is it possible for you to delete your posts considering that the duplicates are by a family member and are very detailed.
I appreciate your work and your consideration in this matter.
Please let me know

Thomas Comba (1843-1926)

You don't make mistakes, but I am checking on the link to his spouse - Annie (1870-1959).

He is 27 years older than she. Is that his spouse?

Hi Achisha
I am hoping you can help me. I requested a photo of the grave of John Harper (1841-1916) buried in the Elora cemetery. Unfortunately when I click on request a photo, it says there already is one, yet the only photo there is the ecemtery gate. I see your name on this site and hope you can help. Carole
