What information can I include in a non-famous bio?
Genealogical information about the subject can be included in the biography.
Personal information:(the following information is from the community rules concerning biographies for memorials)
The focus of a biography is memorializing the individual’s life with preference to an originally written biography. We ask that those who index and memorialize the deceased from newspapers and other third party accounts do so with full respect of copyright, refrain from adding information about living people, and respond generously to the family of the deceased.
If a cause of death is included, it is to be short and to the point, such as shown on a death certificate. Please don’t include graphic death details or name a perpetrator. Links to other websites or email addresses are not allowed within any memorial.
These standards will be added to and updated from time to time. Find a Grave reserves the right to edit any biography submitted to the site to conform to these and any future posted standards.
I follow find a grave guidelines for transfers. Memorials are transferred for direct relatives within four generations. This includes your spouse, siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
NOTE: I won't transfer any of my relatives.
When submitting edits, please forward the source document(s) used to send edits. Please refer to Find A Graves "Help" section for more information.
I dont link to memorials in a burial unknown status
Rudeness will be ignored
Reminder: The social security record does not list the place of death. It is the last known address a payment was sent.
