I do not adhere strictly to the FAQ suggestion (not a directive) that transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations (i.e., siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren). I will transfer management of any memorial to any member of the extended family of the person in a memorial upon request with pleasure, provided that such person is equally liberal in granting transfer requests.|
Personally, I'd rather have a memorial managed by a member of the extended family who has significant motivation to maximize the content of the memorial due to the family relationship than continue managing it myself. The distance back in time or the degree of relationship to that ancestor is irrelevant to the question of a person's commitment to the memorial.
Please provide your relationship to the person in the memorial when making the request.
This has been said about genealogy and I rather think that it applies with equal force to the volunteer work done here at Find A Grave:
Genealogy begins as an interest,
Becomes a hobby,
Continues as an avocation,
Takes over as an obsession,
And in its last stage,
Is an incurable disease.
If you would like me to take cemetery pictures for you, please include the grave location - one way to learn a grave location is to phone the cemetery; if a cemetery with thousands or even tens of thousands of graves has 20 photo requests and I have only an hour or two to take photographs, I am likely to select first the requests that include the grave location. Also, if you want multiple photographs (e.g., husband and wife), list both/all of them; I feel that I more helpful the more pictures that I take, so I am likely to give priority to a pair of requests.
If you would like to use one of my photos for your own personal purposes (e.g., to post on a profile on your family tree at Ancestry.com), feel free to do so, but please provide attribution (along the lines of "Originally contributed to the memorial for [name of person] on Find A Grave by Charlie Morgan").
A note about the Transcriptions Field - it's very time consuming to complete. I concur completely with the following comment made by Stauffacher56 in a thread in one of the Forums here: "I think the transcription is about the marker and should include everything it says. If I omit something (usually due to readability issues, sometimes because living persons are mentioned) I'll mention the nature of the omission in the note field. Things like names and dates could be presented differently on the marker vs. the fields on the top of the page. Photos aren't viewable by everyone, sometimes they're not very clear, and sometimes there isn't a photo at all. The transcription fills those gaps."
By making a complete transcription of the inscription, we do a big favor to folks without eyesight who depend on electronic readers to speak the words of a website to them. Those readers cannot read photographs.

|Robin E.||Hassert Find A Grave Memorial# 125181381|
Thank you SO much for all of your contributions to those of us seeking our family history! I believe that Aaron Hassert was my 4X great grandfather, and Aletta "Letitia" Voorhees was my 4X great grandmother (Luke Hassert was my 3X great grandfather). I am curious as to how you obtained the information on the associated memorials, and if you have reference information I would LOVE to learn about it! I am a novice at best, so I apologize in advance for my ignorance to this process.
Thanks again for all that you do! Your dedication is beyond commendable.

|Natalie Woodall||RE: Fannie Thomas|
Hi! Thanks for replying. Sanford S. Thomas was the son of Lewis and Abby Thomas. His wife was Phila M. Spencer Thomas. Sanford had a brother, William Henry Seward Thomas, who was married to 1) Fanny Searles, died 1876 and 2) Mary Gregg, DOD unknown as of this moment! I thank you for giving me credit for the update but it really wasn't necessary. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall
|Natalie Woodall||Fannie Thomas|
Dear Mr. Morgan: May I offer an update for Fannie A. Thomas, buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Roberts Corners, NY? She was not the daughter of Lewis N. and Abby Searles Thomas. Lewis died on August 28, 1863, killed by being hit in the head by a cross bar on a barn door during a storm. Fannie was the daughter of Sanford Summerville Thomas and Phila M. Spencer, and therefore the granddaughter of Lewis and Abby. I think you got the dates correct. If you look on the 1880 census for Adams, Jefferson, NY, 140, 140 you will find the entire family, and Fannie was nine at the time. Hope this helps. Are you from that area? My parents are buried near the Thomas family so I know the Evergreen Cemetery well. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall
@ The Western Cemetery of Portland, Cumberland,Maine. I took abt 90% of my Jordan Genealogy and other related families from the Tristram Jordan book 'Jordan Family Memorial' and at the Western Cemetery info on Ruth Jordan it has stated that the birth date is not accurate and that is right. From the book mentioned above, her birth date is 24 June, 1791 born in Maine, daughter of Tristram Jordan and Hannah Lassel. Thank you for all you do for others!!!
|Krista AQ Thompson||Thank you|
I was thinking of having it tagged a cenotaph, but I think I'll do as you say--let it be, with a note that the cemetery says he was moved, but doesn't know where or when. Because you're right, folks will come in again and again and recreate if I delete.
Thank you again, Charlie, for your time and thoughtful response!

Hi! While this gentleman was originally interred at Congressional, Congressional says he was moved to New Jersey, though they don't have a date or any further information. It seems possible that he may have been re-interred with his first wife, Eliza (#125156831). I'm hoping you've some information? I'm not happy with the idea of moving or deleting a memorial based upon "moved, but we don't know when or where."
|Charlotte H||RE: Crocheron family|
Thank you again. I will take good care of them.
