Hi Virginia,

I've transferred your gg-grandparent's memorials to you so that you can make the additons you want to do. My best advice is to select the link on the upper left of the page marked "Help with Find A Grave." It has a lot of anwers to the most common questions.

I would point out to you their transfer guidleines:

"How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?

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 usually stick to the second of the above guidelines (which do not require me to transfer someone's great-great-grandparent like your, but I usually do make that transfer since it is a direct link as long as it isn't a relative of my onw.)

The other adice I'd offet is to send corrections using the very same tab you sent the orginal message to me, the SAC of Send A Correcton option. It give the person who receives the message a direct link to the memorial that is to be modified. If you want to link someone to their parents, here's an example of a message I recently ssnt someone:

Would you please add the following links to her parents:

54320480 Gilliam Bert DeBruhl

54320479 Annis Martin Debruhl


This give the information a person needs to make the links. Also, remember that yoiu can only link a memorial to their parents and spouses. So to link a child to his parents, don't send the message fromt he parents memorial asking to link a child. Instead, send it from the child's memorial like my example asing to link the parents.

If you have any more questions or need advice about this site, I'd be happy to help if I can. Welcome to Findagrave!
