I follow find a grave guidelines for transfers so please don't ask for a transfer unless it is a required transfer;Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Be a model of rectitude
Seriously, some people need to grow up
We may think people make us angry, but most of the time they simply reveal our own selfishness. What usually makes us angry is our lack of control over people and circumstances.
******I do ask for documentation and one shouldn't be offended if asked for "proof" as the integrity of the site must be maintained. Using the suggestion edit gives a person a place to add where they got the information for the edit and it works very well as one doesnt have to send anything to an email.
Please don't add obituaries to the photo section on memorials or send edits to have current obituaries added to a memorial I maintain.
Please don't add death certificates, birth certificates, marriage records, etc. to any memorial I maintain. Those types of records belong on a family tree not find a grave.
I don't link to burial unknown memorials
Burials where the interment is unknown may be added using the 'Other' burial option, then 'recent death, location of body unknown'. Location of body unknown must be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days.
Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Please do NOT add newspaper article or obituary scans. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you. Do not copy and post photographs from obituary or funeral home websites (unless you personally are the photographer), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright. Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed.
