PLEASE USE THE NEW EDIT FEATURES:
on the edit tab, you'll see this menu, click on the link, and fill in the blank. This submits the information so I can do a one click approval of your request. This is a new feature, and with volumes of requests, I find myself needing you to do this part of the work.
Birth and death dates and locations
Corrections and bio information will be added if you send it to me. Generally I do the edits the same day you send them to me. I get so many that I generally don't reply, but rest easy - I will do them.
I'll absolutely transfer memorials to relatives - I firmly believe that relatives should control their family's memorials. I generally extend the transfers to the slightest family relationship, going way past Find A Grave's rules.
I generally don't honor non-family requests. If you want to customize a friend's memorial, please do so - you don't need to control the memorial to add pictures and information. If its something that I have to add, edit or link, I'm absolutely cooperative for these things.
To the "memorial collector" types - if you are a solid contributor who volunteers your time taking photos and adding records, you would get special consideration on non-family requests.
Thank-you to those of you who have gone the extra mile for me. I respect and admire you for taking the time to do a favor for my family and I.
