We have been tracing our family trees for a number of decades. As part of that research, we have walked a number of cemeteries photographing the gravestones. Jim's genealogy centers on Mason County, WV and Elizabeth's family comes from the western New York area.

Changes to names, dates, places and relationships can be easily made under the Edit tab on any memorial.
The purpose of Find A Grave is to record burial locations, not build your family tree. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request.
If you wish to gather your family members, use the "Virtual Cemetery" feature.
All the current policies on transfers can be found at "How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?" under the "Help" link on the bottom of the page. Requests for transfers must be within these guidelines and include a relationship statement.
Requests for transfers outside of direct relatives within four generations (specifically -- siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren) will not be honored. (If you do not agree with the Find A Grave policy, you need to be writing a note to them. It is their free website and they can make the rules.)
"In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location." (from Help with Find A Grave)
Mistakes happen. If we have duplicated a correctly placed memorial, just add a note under "Suggest Any Other Correction.
Moving a memorial, not originally posted to the correct cemetery (or originally posted using "burial unknown") does not make our memorials duplicates regardless of the creation date. Moving a memorial means you are creating the duplicate, again, regardless of the creation date.
Photographs we have taken may be used on other websites or in printed materials ONLY if credit is given to Findagrave.com (including cemetery name) and credit is given to "Jim and Elizabeth" as photographers. Any images we have uploaded are copyrighted and are not free for the taking without proper credit. (See Find A Grave's copyright policy under "Help" on the bottom of the page.)
