Do not ask for transfers if you are merely "COLLECTING" (IE you have 344 entries, but are "managing" 1250, particularly if you can't even link husband and wives between the memorials that you are managing!) That's what virtual cemeteries are for. Please state your relationship in the SAC when requesting a transfer. If you can't put the relationship in words, perhaps I should retain management of the memorial until someone more closely related requests it. I'm looking for an exact relationship, not "my great-grandmother was a Smith". (If you want management simply to consolidate your relatives, take a look at Virtual Cemeteries as a way to do this.) PLEASE DON'T INSULT ME BY SAYING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD DATA!
"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."
Memorials are complete as long as they are in the correct cemetery with the correct name and dates as on the marker.
To you folks that complain about Photo Volunteers... if you drove to each and every grave of your family (perhaps all over the country), how much gas and time would you spend? Most of you would never visit those graves. Get over it, the Photo Volunteers have helped you.
To you folks that complain about Volunteers "stalking" in cemeteries... a cemetery is not a Country Club. Anyone can walk in a cemetery even if a funeral service is occurring.
To you folks who do not like to read obits on the created memorials... why did you post the memorial in the newspaper in the first place? You must have wanted the public to know this information. The volunteer who posted the obit on a memorial was just helping you reach more of the public.
You folks that do not like the ads around memorials -- then spend a crummy $5.00 and sponsor the memorial yourself.
You folks that don't want a photo of your family grave on this website... then don't bury them in a cemetery with a stone for all to see.
You folks that don't like this site... get over it. If you don't like it just don't visit. Get over it and leave the rest of us useful volunteers alone. We are doing a service for the World for generations to come.
