Bio Photo MISSION: I believe Find A Grave's mission first and foremost is to document cemeteries; to accurately record graves, not to build one's family tree.

Find A Grave FAQs says: Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials [may] contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can leave remembrances via 'virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.

TRANSFERS (PLEASE READ): Per Find A Grave FAQs, Transferring of management should only be requested 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.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.

I will consider making out-of-guideline transfers on a case-by-case basis. Please tell me your specific relationship to the one you want transferred to you. I need specifics not vague statements such as this is my family member, my relative or they are in my family tree. IF YOU AREN'T SPECIFIC, I WILL IGNORE/DELETE YOUR REQUEST. Please be considerate when asking.

This is guidelines set forth by Find A Grave. If you don't agree with them, please take it up with Find A Grave.

RE: Pedro G. Gonzalez
I will definitely check as I thought it was kinda strange that he would be in grave 67 when Constance Tinker was in 67 with a marker. I'll check this week. Already have it on my list. Have great day. Henry

I knew that you were going to decline the plot information for Pedro but if you check his wife Frances is buried in E-N-66 and his name is on the same marker. I sent to plot information for Constance Tinker E-N-67 and there is a marker for Constance so Pedro cannot be buried in 67. I will check it out next time I go to the cemetery. I will go to the office. I think there is just an error. Will let you know when I find out. Thanks, Henry

RE: Ralph B. Stoltenberg
Much of the information I have was put together in an extensive genealogy workup done by one of my husband's Pribbenow relatives a number of years ago. She had passed the information on to my mother-in-law who then passed it on to me. Neither of the women are still alive, so I can't talk to them about it. I haven't had reason previously to doubt the validity of the information that was originally put together, but I will certainly start doing some digging into the notes as to where she obtained her information from. Thanks for letting me know.
