Edits that I Submit:
If I submit an edit to a memorial it is because records (birth cert., death cert., etc.) exist to support those edits. Please message me if you have any questions or concerns about edits that I submit and I'll be more than happy to share the resource from which I derived the information that I submit.
First, determind if you really need the memorial transferred to you. If not, photos and suggested updates can be submitted via the Submit Edit form.
All memorial transfer requests must be submitted via the Submit Edit form using the "Suggest other corrections" option. When requesting a memorial transfer, please include the memorial number and your relation to the decedant.
The majority of memorials that I manage are my relatives. Transfer requests will be honored only per Find A Grave's transfer policy.
When submitting edits, please include citation(s) to source documents upon which the edits are based. When possible, edit information submitted will be verified before accepted. To keep the memorials from becoming cluttered with names of who submitted what, I do not include username bylines in bio submissions or edits.
