Findagrave FAQ for transfers:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
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.

Thanks for your quick response to my corrections and additions to Nellies memorial. She was one of my favorite aunts, when I was a child. I recently found her obit, in an old family Bible that has come into my possession. The obit stated that she was born in Fayette County, but didn't stipulate whether it was Pa. or WV. I assumed that it was probably Pa., since she lived in Marion County, and Fayette County Pa. is nearby. (You know what they say about assumptions). Apparently the information on the obit was wrong, and your information is correct.

Thanks again for your quick response.

Since you do not link to burials unknown maybe you can explain how I or anyone else can find a grave that is about 175 years old?
Maybe you can transfer 109759061 (Ingaby Sturm Martin) to myself. Ingaby was my great great grandfather's sister?
