I will honor transfers only if they meet these guidelines:

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.

Got it and done it! It's Find A Grave that is having the problems unfortunately, it can be VERY AGGRAVATING, it is taking away RIGHT information by having things come up in bright red UNKNOWN, when in fact it is right. I hope they get these problems ironed out FAST, I think it is since it was sold I've noticed this.

I have updated Ray's page, corrected his birthplace, and sent copies of his page and that of his wife to the cemetery office for their files.

Thanks for the edits you sent for both pages.

#36706684 Catharine (Rishel) Rote
Catherine Rishel Rote died at the home of her daughter's, Mrs. P. Allard on Thursday morning after a useful life of nearly eighty years .... laid to rest in the Soldier cemetery.
Catherine Rishel was born in Berks county, Pa., Jan. 31, 1826. Moved with her parents to Illinois at the age of 12 years and was married to George Rote April 22"d 1847. To them were born six children, two dying in infancy, those remaining are Mrs. E. D. Knowlton, Redondo, Cal., G. W. Rote and Mrs. S. F. Riffle, Sinden, Iowa, and Mrs. P. Allard, Soldier, Kansas. She had been a member of the Christian church since 1872 ....

Please make the following correction: Mrs. S. F. Riffle, Sinden, Iowa should read Mrs. S. F. Kittle, Linden, Iowa. This is my great grandmother. Thanks for making the correction. Kent Turner Redfield, IA

RE: Paynes in Holton Cemetery
Thanks for the response. Don't worry about adding the photo if it needs the engraving, we won't be doing any engraving in the foreseeable future. It could take years to get past the family drama.

Paynes in Holton Cemetery
Thanks for adding the updates today! I have added my grandmother, Jane Payne, #182595434. You have a photo of her stone on her husband's listing, William Robert Payne, and I was hoping you might upload the photo to her listing as well. Thanks so much.
