I will not transfer any memorials where someone does not say how they are related and I will not transfer based on I'm related by way of family surnames or related by way of a spouse. I will transfer to a spouse but you have to explain exactly how the person is related to your spouse. Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) are not required to be transferred.
Update - 6/19/2019
Please add the memorial number to any messages you leave on my profile. It is getting hard to find individuals as there are many people with the same names. It would make it easier to locate the correct memorial. And make sure I'm not sending requests to the wrong contributors. Thank you for helping me avoid any confusion.
Please read my transfer policy before requesting any transfers. Please Note - I will not contact you if I decline a transfer request outside of the guidelines. I am no longer adding any obituaries to memorials unless you are a direct relative. It doesn't matter if you are a friend, don’t ask due to copyright issues. I will only add Obituaries for my family and friend's memorials, which I put on, find a grave. Thank you in advance for your understanding on this issue.
