" 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 a transfer if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without the need to manage a memorial. Simply having someone in your family tree is not sufficient to request a transfer. With millions of members, there will be many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all members 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 or changes to make to a memorial, contact the memorial manager via the ‘Suggest other Corrections’ link under the ‘Suggest Edits’ button on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial transferred to you. This will send an email request to the member, even if there is not an email address listed on their profile.
Fourth, Always explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not a required transfer. Keep in mind that the memorial manager may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. You may also want to include your specific interest in the memorial. Do not make bulk surname requests. Memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred."
