TRANSFER GUIDELINES / REQUESTS
If your Transfer Request falls outside of the Guidelines, I once considered each on an individual basis (as a courtesy), but all such consideration has ceased because of a really bad experience with another "contributor".
This "contributor" had the gall to go over my head, and somehow was granted a clearly and totally out-of-guidelines transfer of one of the memorials in my care!
Therefore, effective Sunday, July 17, 2011, no out-of-guidelines Transfer Requests will be honored, so please do not waste my time and yours by asking for an out-of-guidelines transfer! That especially includes requests where no family connection is claimed at all!
I will be happy to add any bona fide information/links sent to me. You might also consider "Virtual Cemeteries". It's a great way to keep folks "together".
DUPLICATE MEMORIALS / PHOTOGRAPHS
Before creating a memorial, please search thoroughly to see if a record with that NAME has already been added. Duplicates can be avoided better by searching for the NAME, and not just the cemetery).
If you find the NAME you're looking for, and it's a "Burial Unknown", just simply send the bona fide burial/cremation information (if you have it) to the memorial manager, instead of creating a duplicate, please!
If a memorial needs to be edited/updated, click on the "Edit" tab on the upper right of the memorial, and then click "Suggest A Correction" to submit additional bona fide details/information, (especially including burial/cremation information for "Burial Unknowns") to the memorial manager.
There are too many duplicate photos of the same person/gravemarker/gravestone appearing on a lot of the memorials. Please check to see if there is one already posted, before submitting one just like the one already in place.
I have a soft spot in my heart for veterans. They deserve our thanks and appreciation. My beloved late father was a World War II combat vet.
MY FIND A GRAVE PHILOSOPHIES
The individuals memorialized on Find A Grave meant something to somebody, and I do not take that lightly.
All "Virtual Flowers" that I put on memorials are genuine, and from the heart, whether I knew that individual or not.
Also, I was raised with good manners, and I require good manners in any Find A Grave correspondence sent to me! Rude and pushy people get nowhere with me!
And do not insult me by suggesting that I "review the FAQs" ... ! We are all human, and mistakes are made.
"Unless the legal name contains a hyphen ... punctuation should not be included in the memorial name."
"If the deceased female was never married, then the surname should still be placed in the Last Name field, NOT in the Maiden Name field."
SUGGEST A CORRECTION
Use the "EDIT" tab at the upper right of memorials. Please do not enter SAC information through "Leave A Public Message", on a "Photo Caption", or as a "Virtual Flower" on any of the memorials I manage.
There is an allowable 30 day time frame to act on SACs, so one notice to me is sufficient.
I am starting to get too many SACs stating:
"A Find A Grave visitor has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for .....
This suggestion was submitted by someone who was not logged in to Find A Grave, so we cannot provide a link to their contributor profile."
Please do not send me any SACs unless you are logged into Find A Grave!

Thank you for the heads up on his obit info.
|Craig Handy||William Lanham|
Thank you for the heads up on his last name not in the last name column.
|Sheila Parcell||Dick Trickle|
I am a relative of Dick Trickle's and I'm in the process of preserving my memorial. I thank you for your concern.
Kathy, I've deleted my duplicate memorial. I don't have your email, but can forward you your SAC if you contact me. Your virtual flower message was May you rest in eternal Heavenly peace, Mr. Armstrong. Thank you very much. Loretta

Kathy, I've been asked by Thomas's other memorial owner to remove my memorial, which I will, once I'm sure his other memorial has the correct information. I wanted to let you know in case you wanted to move the virtual flower to the other memorial. I apologize if that sounds rude, but I didn't want to delete my memorial without letting you know.

|LBS||Thomas Armstrong SAC, Redding Memorial|
Hi Kathy, I received your suggested updates for Thomas. There is another (duplicate) memorial for him with different information than what I've found, so I need to look a bit further or get some more details from you, if you have them. I have made some updates/links in the Bio, but am not finished yet (would love to add your additional suggestions as well). I just wanted to at least acknowledge your SAC. Loretta

|Daff||Mary Jelly SAC|
no problem, I have no relationship with either Jelly if she is a relative of yours would you like the memorial? I have added the details you sent.
The contributor transferred ownership to me simply because I put a wreath there one New Year's Eve

you are so welcome and thanks for any corrections you might see I need to do...

Thanks for your help. I was able to confirm information with his niece which I meant to do a year ago and had totally forgotten. Without your help I might never have remembered.
|Donna Rose||Ababurko, Walter|
I claimed and submitted the grave pics, please add that he is in section D-169. I also made a memorial page for Anna and submitted pic as well. Would you like me to transfer it to you?
