Special thanks to the incredible people who selflessly share their info so that others may benefit!|
PLEASE, AS A COURTESY, DO NOT POST DEATH/BIRTH CERTS, OBITS, FAMILY INFO, ETC. to the photo or flower sections of my memorials. I find it offensive and disrespectful to the deceased. These are memorials to honor & remember the dead, not for genealogical research. And FaG does not allow the posting of actual obits - please read their Guidelines. Use the 'Edit' tab and submit the additional info and I will be happy to post it.
IF THERE IS ALREADY A PHOTO OF THE HEADSTONE PLEASE DO NOT POST ANOTHER ONE - ONE PHOTO IS ENOUGH.
YOU ARE WELCOMED TO USE MY PHOTOS THAT I HAVE POSTED FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE BUT DO NOT COPY THEM TO OTHER WEBSITES (ESPECIALLY ON ANCESTRY.COM) WITHOUT GIVING CREDIT TO THE PERSON THAT POSTED THEM.
The Polk County, Tennessee Cemetery Grave Memorials began being posted in 2001 and continue to be updated daily by myself and other members of the Polk County Genealogical & Historical Society as well as other volunteers who generously devote their time to research. Because these memorials are managed by family members of Polk Co.(myself included) & the Polk County Genealogical & Historical Society, transfers will not be made as there are many descendants that have the same lineage. We suggest you create a Virtual Cemetery for your ancestors instead.
Primary research names: WOMBLE, STANDRIDGE, RYMER, KIRKLAND, WHITE, TALLENT, VAUGHN and I am related to the majority of the First Families in Polk Co., TN.
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.
SIXTH, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.
