Transferring guidelines:

Editing & Correcting Memorial Information

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management 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 will 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. Again, always include your relationship to the memorial on a transfer request, in order for it to be considered. You may also want to include your specific interest in the memorial. Bulk surname requests must 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 definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor will 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.

John Rebenstorf - Wetmore cemetery
Thank you for the death notice from the Wetmore Spectator. I have posted it on the memorial with credit to you. However, I am not making a change in the death date as that is the date on the marker and per the obit, it is the correct date. The Friday before Dec 27 is Dec 20. And John was 66 yr, 1 mo and 6 days at the time of his death.

If I am missing something, please let me know.

I have updated Nettie's page in Mount Hope Cemetery in Topeka, and have sent a copy of it to the cemetery for their office files.

Thank you so much for the edit you sent to link her to her spouse.

Wow - thanks for the great newspaper article on the death of George Ordway! That was super. Is he a relative of yours? Happy to transfer him, if he is. Otherwise, happy to have put that on his site and meanwhile looking for his kin.

Linking of the Memorial
Sorry could not figure out the transfer, but copied what you sent from The Recorder. Thank you for the info. I wish Holton would add their paper to the info available in again ty.

R. P. Segrest / Samuel Segrist

The only way to have them linked as siblings is under the parents' memorial so I have simply added a note at the bottom of the bio showing the Memorial Number for Samuel.
