Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have recorded the birth date, death date, and last address of your family members. Now it is your turn to edit and enhance their memorials, for the enjoyment of future generations.

Thank you so much to the people who generously donate their time and money to provide information, photographs, and floral contributions to people who may never be able to thank them. I especially appreciate those who remember this is much bigger than ourselves and consistently maintain their memorials in a professional manner, treating others volunteers in the respectful way in which they like to be treated.

Steward for these memorials when I pass

FINDAGRAVE MEMORIAL TRANSFER POLICY

First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. 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.

Second, Transfer requests should 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 should 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 defintion. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor should 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.

I HAVE HAD AN OVERABUNDANT AMOUNT OF BAD EXPERIENCES TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS TO MEMBERS WHO QUICKLY LOSE INTEREST AND ABANDON THE MEMORIALS I CREATED. WHEN I LOOK AT YOUR PROFILE AND I SEE YOU HAVE HAD HUNDREDS, OR THOUSANDS, OF MEMORIALS TRANSFERRED TO YOU, I WONDER ABOUT THE NECESSITY SINCE YOU ARE ONLY DIRECTLY DESCENDED FROM 30 PEOPLE ACCORDING TO FINDAGRAVE GUIDELINES. ONE TRANSFER REQUEST CAME WITH A NOTE ABOUT ALL OF THE BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SHE HAD TO POST WHICH CONSISTED OF "THIS WAS MY FIFTH GREAT GRANDPAPPY WHO I LOVED VERY MUCH". THAT, SOMEWHAT SUSPECT, BIOGRAPHY COULD HAVE BEEN POSTED ON A FLOWER TRIBUTE. I RESEARCH ALL CORRECTIONS SUBMITTED TO ME FOR ACCURACY BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT OF MISINFORMATION AND FAMILY TREES WHICH ARE ALL MESSED UP ON RESEARCH SITES. ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS I HAVE BUILT TWO SEPARATE FAMILIES IN FINDAGRAVE SO THAT THEY WILL BACKFEED CORRECTLY INTO ANCESTRY. I AM TICKLED TO RECEIVE NEW EDITS AND LINKS, AND AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA EXCITED ABOUT PICTURES AND STORIES TO PERSONALIZE THE MEMORIALS. AND I AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA UNHAPPY WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO GET ME TO REMOVE INFORMATION IN ORDER TO REWRITE THEIR HISTORY TO PLEASE THEM.
I AM AN UNBIASED CARETAKER WILLING TO POST ALL THE DOCUMENTED INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE AND HAVE WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH OTHER FINDAGRAVE MEMBERS FOR YEARS EXCHANGING INFORMATION TO HELP BUILD YOUR FAMILY HISTORY. MOST OF MY DIRECT ANCESTORS WERE BUILT BY AN EARLY PIONEER TO FINDAGRAVE WHO POSTED ALL OF THE INFORMATION I REQUESTED AND TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO IMBEDDED LINKS BEFORE THE RELATIONSHIP LINK FEATURE WAS ADDED. OVER TIME I HAVE TALKED HIM OUT OF A FEW OF THEM, BUT NOW SEEMS TO HAVE MOVED TO FLORIDA AND FOUND SOMETHING BETTER TO DO WITH HIS TIME. [I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU BERN] PUH-LEEZE DON'T OBSESS ABOUT OWNING THE MEMORIALS OF EXTENDED FAMILY.

Robert Parham O'Briant
There is a picture of a family on Robert's memorial page. I assume it is the family of Mr. O'Brient? Can you tell me how you know it is of his family? This same picture has shown up in the documents of his Wife's (Eliza Ann's)family and there are some who say it is a picture of Eliza's father, mother and siblings. I am trying to find some proof, if such exists as to who is really in this picture. I thank you for all you do for genealogy and for any answers you can provide for us.

Sibling of Claude Napoleon Allen (#54640424)
Hi...
Thank you for all that you do for so many people. I am trying to help a friend of mine who I persuaded to start her family tree last year. You have created a memorial for her grandfather's brother Claude Napoleon Allen. Her grandfather's name is James Lloyd Allen, Sr. and he is supposed to be buried in the same cemetery as Claude. Since there is no memorial here on Find-A-Grave for James, should I assume there is no headstone for him? Is there any way you could find out for me if he is really buried there? If there's nothing you can do to help, can you tell me the name of a Find-A-Grave contributor who might be able to help? My friend can't travel down to NC to see the cemetery so anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks so much and God bless you!

RE: John T Rogers Portrait
Thank you so much! I have checked out Find a Grave before, but I don't know all the in's and out's of it!

I appreciate how thorough you were listing available details of the family. Last time I saw John Roger's tombstone it had broken. That was in November. I believe the previous summer it was not. You certainly had not put all this information when I started researching. Would you happen to know who maintains the cemetery? I'd love to get in touch with them!

I feel like your username is so familiar. I feel like I possibly have been in contact with you before. Have I lost my mind forgetting?

Thanks Again,

Scarlett

John T. Rogers Portrait
Hi. The portrait you have of John T. Rogers is mine, which is why it is public. I'm glad for it to be used, but I was wondering if you could please add my name to it so if anyone comes across it and has this family connection they can contact me if they choose?

Thank You,

Scarlett Vanessa Munday Grace

Re: Woods dups

Thanks for the heads up. I changed the links and pics and deleted the dups. I hate dups (esp when I do it). LOL

Still working on Maplewood sec 3 - only have about 1600 pics to go thru. I want to get them done so I can take more. The weather is nice again.

RE: Calvin Brown - # 145437660
I just found a date of death for Rufus in "Marriages and Deaths in Raleigh Register and North Carolina State Gazette, 1846 - 1893" on Ancestry. Barely lucked out with his date of death - its listed as 5 Oct 1893, and shows his obituary was published 6 Oct 1893.

Now if we could just find some indication if his is the other "unknown" grave at Wilders.

I'm coming to NC next month to do some research before our Macon family reunion. While at the library, I'll see if I can find a copy of the actual obit to see what it says, and I'll go to Wilder's and see if I can find any kind of markings or indications on the 2 listed as "unknown".

Calvin Brown - # 145437660
You are correct - thank you.

According to Arabella's death certificate, she was buried in Wilder's - Wilder's showed 2 "unknown" graves, so I created a memorial page for her, correctly linked her to Calvin, and sent an edit request to you for Rufus (Jr). Her death certificate lists her as a widow, so Sr. died prior to 6 Aug 1924 (I wonder if the other "unknown" grave there is him).

Thanks for all that you do,
Rusty Macon Weber
