Hi I've added a newspaper article that I found. FYI...unclear date of death as newspaper says July 17 (wrong as article published June 25). California death record says June 19th. But sounds like your family rumor is true.

Newell transfers

Good Grief,

Why didn't you say your husband is Thomas and you are Anne Castellucci Newell. It doesn't have to be this difficult.

Ralph Newell transfer request

With your reluctance to define the relationship, I must assume there is no relation. Further requests will be reported as fraud.

Ralph Newell transfer request

Hi Annie,

Please use the edit tab on the record you are requesting.
Use the "Suggest other Corrections" selection, that way I get the numbers I need for the transfer. Be sure to include your husbands name. I verify relationships.

Hi Annie,

I did not respond to your first request for transfer of your aunt because it was outside the guideline requirements for transfers.

For your list of desired transfers from your latest message, please go to each record and use the edit tab like you did for the first request. Be sure to describe your relationship to the person on the record. Be aware that a member, like you or I, is not required to make out of guideline transfers.


Here is what I base my actions upon:

Quoted from the "Help with Find a Grave" 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.


You should not be shocked that others enter records for people outside their family. I have about 45,000 records for people that are not close relations of mine. One person I am aware of has over 1 million records. That person is not likely to be related to most of them.

Please send suggestions for edits using the edit tab facility on each memorial, I process a number of edits each week and validate each one from public records.

I look forward to your co-operation in developing meaningful memorials.

RE: Transferring Site to Me
Annie: I don't have a message from you asking for a memorial transfer. Would you please go to the memorial and send a message again?

Elsie Ballreich
I made the change you pointed out.
if she is your great aunt then you must be directly related to one of Elsie's siblings. Curious to which one and how as several went to California.
Elsie is my first cousin's grandmother. Do you know your NY relatives?

I made the correction. As he is in your Family Tree, would you like management of his memorial? Please let me know. I will be happy to transfer to you. Thanks.

RE: Grampa Harry Morse
Hello Anne, as I mentioned to someone about this before, Western Lawman Harry Morse's bio page is under the ownership of Find a Grave because he's in the famous status section. Yes, I wrote his bio and submitted it according Find a Grave guidelines for famous. By doing so to the porper guidelines, the bio stays within the focus of the indiviual. I suggest you link his other relatives and family members to Harry's bio or enter them by themselves in the none famous section. This would get everyone concerned on the site. Best always,
