I am happy to add info, make relationship links and transfer memorials within findagrave guidelines (see Help with Findagrave). If you had a personal relationship with someone outside of the Findagrave guidelines, I may transfer, but that's not required, so please don't be rude or angry if I don't (I won't respond to "rude." It will be ignored or reported to Admin). I am unlikely to make such transfers if you manage substantially more memorials than you have entered or contributed photos to (the mission is to record graves, not "collect" memorials) or are very new to Findagrave (as too often, people come on, "collect" memorials, then lose interest and quit, leaving memorials without management). For transfers, additions and corrections, please use Suggest a Correction under the Edit tab and be clear about what you're requesting. I've received Corrections with a single word or name (but no explanation of what to do with it), link requests without the number or relationship of the person to be linked to and transfer requests that don't state the requestor's relationship.
Please do not transfer memorials to me that I haven't asked for. While I appreciate the generous intent, I'm not collecting memorials.
If you have set your profile so that you can not be contacted, then please do not contact me or post anything on memorials I manage. It is frustrating to receive SAC's that have incorrect or insufficient information, or to find recent obits posted, wrong headstones, redundant headstones, "flowers" with correction suggestions (not the correct format for suggestions), etc. and not have any way to contact the "contributor", leaving me only the options of 1) ignoring the SAC, 2) letting improper or misleading items remain or 3) deleting and re-entering the memorial. Communication is a far better option.
Please do not post redundant headstone photos or articles that take 2 or 3 .jpgs. It uses up the 5 photo max and does not enhance the memorial. If you would like to post an article (that is out of copyright) and don't know how to make it into one .jpg, feel free to send it to me. I'll combine it and return it to you to post. I'm not at all concerned with who gets the "count." I'm interested in the quality of the memorials.
PLEASE, EVERYONE, READ 'HELP WITH FINDAGRAVE.' Some key points that seem frequently missed;
Findagrave's primary mission is grave registration, not genealogy.
You should NEVER deliberately create a duplicate memorial. To add or correct info, send a message to the memorial owner. If it's not handled in 30 days, send the request to Findagrave Admin. If the memorial owner is inactive, send the request to Findagrave Admin. These are not my rules, so please do not attack, insult or attempt to debate with me over them. There is nothing to discuss. After too many rude and frustrating exchanges, I will now send 1 request to delete a duplicate memorial, then request Findagrave Admin. handle those that remain after 30 days.
You are expected to manage your memorials (update, correct, etc). If you have memorials you are unable to manage, you can notify Findagrave Admin. and they will take over.
