Saw your note and wanted you to know that while updating the Breckenridge Cemetery, I photographed her stone and added it to the memorial. Have a blessed day.

Jim, would you also please transfer Robert Knox (#59882088) and Jemima Ann Shields Knox (#59882130) to me? They are my 2nd great grandparents and I would be honored to manage their memorials.

Thank you so much,

Jim, I'm very sorry to hear about Helen. I didn't realize it'd been that long since I "talked" with her. My sympathy on your loss.

Helen, we have some duplicate memorials. We seem to have a data to combine and coordinate. Can we work together on this?

John Knox memorial
Memorials 85263962 and 61314697 are for the same person. Can they be combined?

RE: Caleb Townsend
The edit is fine; I don't need the transfer unless you just wish to transfer.

There are complete instructions at the bottom of my last message to you.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

From the Find A Grave FAQS page:

How do I transfer a memorial that I manage to another contributor or to Find A Grave to manage and update?
You must be logged in, and you must manage the memorial you are going to transfer. You will also need the other contributor's Contributor ID #. It is next to their name on their contributor page if they did not provide it. If you are transferring the memorial to Find A Grave to manage, the contributor ID # is 8. (If you would like to transfer all of the memorials you have added to a particular cemetery to Find A Grave to manage, please send us an email with your contributor ID # and a link to the cemetery involved, and we can transfer your memorials to Find A Grave for you all at once.)
After you log in, go to the memorial page you are going to transfer. There will be a link on the right side of the memorial page, under the person's name, that says Transfer Management. Click on the link. Add the other contributor's ID # in the box on the Transfer Management of Memorial page that comes up, and click on the transfer this memorial button. NOTE: Once you have transferred the memorial, you will no longer be able to edit or update it.

If you just wish to transfer Caleb's memorial to me, go to and search for Memorial # 60324383 (Caleb Townsend).

At the top right of the memorial, click on Transfer management, and enter my contributor # 47329791.

If you don't know your wife's login, I imagine Find a Grave could help you with that.

Please remove or update the Robbins Memorial that you have ownership to.

There are no Sources and Records that THESE folks ever lived and died.

This is so unfair to New Robbin Researchers looking for their Robbin Ancestors
