Donald R Bivens
Is your father the one who was Supt of Schools in Goshen? And wrote "Monastic Indebtedness During the Reign of Edward I," Ohio State Univ, 1965 -- possibly a thesis or dissertation? If so, he knew he was writing about his direct ancestor, King Edward I?

more re transfer request
On second thought, if you request a transfer by sending a SAC as though it were going to Travis Stephenson (the Inactive who created the memorial), it would probably go to an administrator who could transfer the memorial to you. It probably doesn't make a difference which way you request it, just so long as you state your relationship and state your contributor #.

link created
Thanks to your SAC, the link between Dorothy and Everett is created. Because the original creator of Everett's memorial is "Inactive," you might want to ask the F.A.G. administrators to transfer that memorial to you. That way, you could make more changes to it in the future if you want. The FAQs probably explain which email address to write to if you want to ask for that transfer. I think it's probably edit@findagrave.com or info@findagrave.com. When you ask for the transfer, say that the creator is inactive, say your relationship to the deceased, and say what your F.A.G. contributor # is. Again, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me. And, when/if you have more questions about your Wright ancestors, just ask. Among other things, there is a royal lineage through the Gilberts.

RE: Dorothy Wright Bivens
Hi,

Delighted to hear from you. We're distant Wright cousins. The Dorothy Wright Bivens memorial is not yet linked to her husband, so it seems as though the logical first step for you would be to see if there is a memorial for her husband yet, or, if not, and you know where he is buried, you can create a memorial for him yourself and then link it to hers. Then you could do the same for their children -- see if there are already memorials for them (it's a big no-no on the site to create a duplicate of an existing memorial), and, if not create them. People are usually quite careful to avoid putting the names of living people on the memorials. Much of the workings of the site are pretty intuitive, but the FAQs can help too. I could create the memorials and then transfer to you, but I'd think you'd enjoy creating them yourself. They don't have to be complete when you first create them -- just make sure you get people in the correct cemetery (another big no-no is creating memorials for "burial unknown"), and then you can go back and make additions later. Let me know if I can help. - Jay
