RE: Accounts
I sent you an email to discuss in further detail:

LINKING children to parents. (REFER TO EMAIL)

*********************************
THE OTHER TWO PROBLEMS/ISSUES THAT I SEE, are:

1. You have TWO CONTRIBUTOR NUMBERS in your name because you signed up twice, I guess. I would have thought the Find A Grave system would have prevented you from signing up twice, so I don't know what happened. ERROR ON YOUR PART, sorry I don't know how it happened or how you want to fix it. ONE OF THE NUMBERS NEEDS TO BE DELETED BUT WHEN YOU DO THE MEMORIALS YOU CREATED USING THAT NUMBER WILL ALSO BE DELETED AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO RE-CREATE THOSE MEMORIALS.

2. Regarding PUDD'S THREE MEMORIALS.

[ BEFORE ANY CONTRIBUTOR CREATES A MEMORIAL THEY SHOULD DO A SEARCH TO SEE IF THERE IS ALREADY AN EXISTING MEMORIAL FOR THAT PERSON. ]

You should have checked (by searching Pudd's name) before you created his memorial. By searching, you would have found that someone else had created a memorial for him in 2009.

You not only created 1 memorial for Pudd, but you created 2 memorials for Pudd, using your two different contributor numbers, when he already had a memorial in the system created by someone else several years befor you ever joined.

EXAMPLE:
I searched for my relatives: Charles Young, Lucile Young, Sara Stroud, and others AND FOUND THAT THEY ALL HAD A MEMORIAL IN THE FIND A GRAVE SYSTEM CREATED BY OTHER PEOPLE/CONTRIBUTORS.

I could have asked the contributor to transfer them to me for maintenance (adding information, making family links, etc.) but I chose to just create a VIRTUAL CEMETERY to have ready access to look at the memorials) and just submit information about my relatives for the originator to add to their memorial (most contributors are willing to make those changes/additions OR transfer the memorial to you, if they are not also related to them).

So you will have to decide how to proceed to correct this error:

Either ask the person who created the original memorial to transfer it to you. Or ask them to delete theirs and delete one of yours, so that there will only be one. You will need to think about the way you want to handle this, since you are the one who created the duplicate memorials for Pudd when there was already a memorial in the system.
