I will transfer memorials well beyond the Find A Grave guideline on transfers, but the request MUST include exactly how you are connected to the person in the memorial along with the details of the information you wish to add to the memorial. I don't like doing it this way, but I've been getting too many who get a transfer of their 4th or 5th cousin several times removed by simply saying "please transfer this family member to me so I can add information", then months later when I find more information to add, I have trouble getting them to either respond or add the new information to a memorial that is completely unchanged from when I transferred it to them. I do most of my FindaGrave volunteer work here in Marion County, Missouri. In about 1819, one set of my 4th great-grandparents settled less than 3 miles from where I live today and almost all of my ancestors were in this area before the Civil War started, including some 5th great-grandparents. Well over five dozen of my direct ancestors and their families are buried within a 45 mile radius of my house. So with that in mind, if requesting transfers outside of the official guidelines, please show me you are considerably more closely connected or have some compelling reason you need to be the manager of the memorial. Note that having "more information to add" can be resolved by sending it to the current manager through the edit tab of the memorial. On the other hand, if I didn't know them personally (not my teachers, neighbors, friends, etc) or they are way out on a side branch of my family tree, I'll probably be happy to transfer a memorial for the friend of your great-aunt Martha's second husband's barber if you want it. But first you need to let me know that is how you are connected. My descision to transfer may also be influenced by how much you have contributed to Find A Grave for those you are not connected to, and how many transfers you have made to others, as I try not to reward those who do little to add to the Find A Grave website besides searching for any names they recognize from their extended family tree and collecting them by asking for transfers.|
I want my memorials to be detailed and accurate. HOWEVER: "Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience". (That's their wording). I don't feel a memorial here should be a repository for transcriptions of census records, marriage certificates, or other source materials that are widely available elsewhere online unless it is the type of thing you might engrave on the tombstone, include in a eulogy, or put in the newspaper obituary of your loved ones. If you want to write the information into a nice biography or story of some type, that would be great to add, but please don't just send things like raw census data. I'll add obituaries for you, but I'm not very comfortable with those that were written less than 50 years ago unless any names of people still living are used only with their permission. Otherwise, putting dashed lines in place of their names or just using excerpts of the obituary without the names of those who may still be alive is what I prefer. As you may have noticed when you read the Find A Grave rules on obituaries, any obituary you wish to have added needs to include the name and date of the newspaper from which it came. I also suggest including the volume and issue number of the paper as well, just in case some of the people you are hoping will see it also want to include an original source citation in their geneological records.

As always thank you for posting the rest of my photo requests at Greenwood. Your time is always appreciated.

Hello. I was working on my Marksbury 'line' and I am trying to figure out whether the Emerson, Marion county, Missouri Marksburys are related to 'my' Marksburys.
I have some old newspaper clippings of incidentals pertaining to your Marion county Marksburys.
Thanks to an obit you posted I figured out your Mary Marksbury is not the one in my line; but I still think the two lines may be connected. Both originated in Kentucky etc.
So if you would like the newspaper clippings I have, post on my page and I will email you with those. Then you can delete this message if you wish.
I wasn't sure who among those who posted the Marion county Marksbury memorials might be related to them or interested. You mention doing work in that county.

Thanks, Quentin. Great pictures. Do you mind if I put these in my Ancestry tree, of course, giving you credit again?
Thanks very much for posting the photos for Fred and Lydia Carwell. I am connected to their daughter Ruth.

Your Grave Marker Photos and the effort to make them, are so very much appreciated. I am frequently surprised to review my memorials and find a newly placed marker photo! Thank you!
