Bio Photo I am new to Find-a-grave. 85 years young. My wife and companion of 70 years passed away last year and I have this genealogy hobby to keep me busy. I am sorry I cannot trod through cemeteries but I can type and enter memorials and build off of the fine work of others. Of course like most people, I'm starting with my own family. Charlie

RE: Doty Transfers
You're welcome.


The problem I had was with another person, but when I read your comments on Jackie's page it reminded me of the same problem I had. My situation went on for over a year with no response.

My request was for my grandfather's sister, which does not meet the findagrave criteria for transfer, but since I was able to document the number of requests I made with no response, they made the transfer for me.

In your case, the people you indicated were direct line and well within the findagrave criteria, so you will have no problem with the transfer.

Let me know how it goes.

Requesting a transfer

I read your email to J. Pacholke requesting a transfer of some memorials. The people you are requesting are direct line relatives of yours and you have superior rights to their memorials over J. Pacholke. I had this same problem with a memorial transfer and had to contact the administrator to get the memorial transferred. Below I have included polciy on transfers.

I don't have the adminstrators email address since its been a while since I used it,, so you will have to do a little digging in FAQ for that. Good luck.

at if a member will not transfer my relative to me?
If the memorial in question is a direct relative within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents) to you and the original submitter is not direct family, then your wishes supersede theirs under our "Family First" policy. If they refuse to transfer your relative to you, contact the administration and we will work on it for you.
Please remember that there are thousands of contributors to Find A Grave, and it is highly likely that some of those contributors will actually be part of your family tree and share some of your ancestors.
Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.
