Note 05/19/2013: Just put my computer in the shop. Please keep your edits coming.|
I have recorded the birth date, death date, and last address of your family members. Now it is your turn to maintain 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.
The "Relationship Link" feature is an amazing way to link family members and build your family tree. You can link each memorial to his/her parent(s) and spouse(s). To use this feature:
1) Select "Edit" next to "Family Links" or
"Link Family Members" for first link
2) Type in (or copy and paste) the memorial number of the parent(s) or spouse(s) in the appropriate box.
3) Select "Save Changes"
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.

All the credit is to you. I didnt research a thing. I just found her obit So I see you took the obit and found her information. Thank you. I've been posting obits madly for a month or more, and always hope the Graver will take the time to research the person with the new info like you did.
But I did appreciate the note, made my day.
|Betty and Scott||Sarah F Jones|
Thank you for the transfer
|Cary Fulbrightcfulbright||Not sure what you're asking|
I sent you a message asking you to transfer maintenance of my grandmother Lessie Freeman Fulbright's grave to me. I received a message from you saying:
Father link #33465215
Mother link #33465214
Not sure what you mean. The records already are linked to each other, and also to my father's record. My dad's record was created by me and my granddad's record is maintained by me.
|Estelle Clark||Rebecca Neathery Cole Bowles|
Here is a copy of the message I sent to Ms. Cole who established a duplicate memorial for Rebecca Bowles person. Thanks!
Betty: There already was a memorial for Rebecca Ann Neathery Bowles with photos of her marker. Since your request is a duplicate, perhaps you can ask 4losthistory (by clicking on her name on the original memorial for Rebecca) and ask her to amend the name to show her as Rebecca Ann Neathery Cole Bowles. That way there will be no duplication to confuse further researchers.
|NANCY LONG||WILLIAM H . PERDUE|
Thank you for all your contributions to Find A Grave.
William H. PERDUE was the son of Thomas PERDUE (NO KNOWN MIDDLE NAME OR INITIAL) and Martha Eleanor YOUNG. William was the brother of Thomas Young PERDUE, whose middle name is from his Mother's maiden name. I'm working on info for the 70th Consecutive PERDUE Family Reunion. William had a sister Mary Eleanor PERDUE who married Herman MURPHY and her tombstone HAS HER NAME WRONG...MARTHA ELEANOR not Mary Eleanor. Check it out at Oakwood Cem. in Franklin Co.
Thanks for correcting name of the father of William H. PERDUE.
|Nancy Case Wolff||Thomas J Case|
Do you have any information or a picture of his gravesite? He was an uncle of mine. Thanks,
Nancy (Case) Wolff
|RTerry||RE: George Edgar Lougee # 101380592|
I am never quite sure which to trust. I have found census records with names wrong and gravestones with names wrong. I think the stones are most often right. I guess that's what makes this so interesting. :-))
ps - Last weekend I photographed the entire section 2 at Maplewood Cemetery - approx 2000 pictures. It took me parts of three days (camera battery kept dying - imagine that). I am still working my way through section 15 pics and I also have section 9 pics to process. I think I need to stop taking pics until I get caught up. HAHA!

|Dawn Deaner Foster||Julia M. Stone Strickland (#104712882)|
This is an excellent bio for Julia Strickland! I am interested in the son listed, Joseph Strickland. I believe this my 2X great grandfather (Findagrave.org #110405345). Do you have any information on this son of Julia's?
Thank you so much-
Dawn Deaner Foster
