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.

Thank you for letting me know the cemetery for Norma. Are you related and want a transfer?

RE: Mary Whitaker Glenn Duplicate
THanks! Wouldn't it be nice if Find-A-Grave had a searchable spot for every last name a person has carried? Lots of women seem to be buried next to their first husband, but carried the name of the second husband much longer.

Wesley Bateman's first wife
Dear KUfan:

I visited Bertha Mills Bateman Toothaker's grave in Kansas City this past weekend and created a memorial for her today. (She married Wesley Bateman in 1896 and T.J. Toothaker in 1917.) I see you already have a Mills linked to Wesley, a Millie Mills, buried in Westmoreland. I don't know who this Millie is, but I'm positive she wasn't Wesley's first wife. Could you please remove the marital link between Wesley Bateman and Millie Mills? I already have requested, via the edit function, that Wesley's infant daughters be connected to Bertha rather than Millie.

Many thanks,

Alexander Davis
Find A Grave Memorial# 141173902
Can you verify for me if his age is 71 not 17. I'm looking for an Alexander Davis who was married to Malinda Ann Hamar had has a son, James Oliver Davis. Just wondering if the age on this memorial is correct.

From Earliest Settlement To The Year 1877.

Alexander Davis, with his wife, Melinda, and children, Sarah Lovina (Mrs. Mat Knox, Julia (Mrs. Oscar Coledren), John, Ellen (Mrs. O. W. Grover), Dora (Mrs. John Pogue), and James, came from Black Hawk county, Iowa, in 1857, and settled on the farm now occupied by his son, John. During the hard-times year of 1860 he drove back to Indiana with his family, where he had lived before he went to Iowa. He stayed there two years, when he returned to his Kansas home. Mr. Davis died about 1866. His widow went to Oregon with her son, James, several years ago, where she died. She was Mrs. Vance when she left here. Mrs. Jane White, an aunt of Ben and John White, came to America City, from Iowa, with her children, William, James, Andrew, and George, in 1858. She settled on a farm north of America City. Elizabeth (Mrs. Eph McKee), another daughter, joined her mother, brothers and sisters, from Iowa, in the spring of 1860. That fall Mrs. White, with her family, went back to Iowa to spend the winter. The next spring James enlisted in the army, and the rest of the family came back to Kansas. After they returned, William and John (another son) enlisted here, in 1862. After the war, James returned to Iowa, where he married Catherine Kepler, coming back to Kansas about 1866. He is now in Iowa. John was married when he first came to Kansas. William married Massey, a daughter of Aaron McKee, about 1868. He is now living near Manhattan. Andrew married a Miss Bogle, and lived near Laclede, where he died about 1874. George was married to a Miss Vance, of Myers Valley, this county. He is now in Oklahoma. Eliza was married to Ed Whistler, of Wetmore. She is now Mrs. James Logan, of Manhattan. About 1867, Mrs. White sold her farm near America City and bought one on Rock creek, near Myers Valley. She died there in 1891.

--This information matches with what I have found on Ancestry except Alexander's burial location, which some have him buried in Indiana.

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.
