Transfers should be made through the white edit tab. The big reason is that Find A Grave will provide your ID Number for the transfer. However, if you choose to request a transfer through the profile message board, please provide your ID Number. Without it no transfer will be consider.
In the last ten transfer requests on my profile message board, only one person provided their ID Number. They got their transfer. All who came through the white edit tab got their requested transfers, except one. She just happen to request my 4th great-grandfather and of course I refused.
