From FindaGrave: What if I suggest a factual edit and it is declined?
If the edit is declined and you are certain the edit is correct, use Suggest Other Corrections to send source documentation backing up your suggested edit.

Please send your sources when you first sent your suggestions. It saves us both time not to have to write back and forth just to ask for them. Thank you.

A fact is something that is backed by a first source document. This includes birth/marriage/death/baptismal or equivalent certificates, obituaries, which are actual witnessed documents. Family Trees are not first source documents. No "fact on a tree" should be considered without proper documentation. Note that most obits are copyright but facts only may be transcribed in your own words, omitting the names of the survivors, and placed in the BIO section. Please be respectful of personal info such as cause of death. This is very personal info.

Above all, Please be respectful to the deceased. DO NOT POST DOCUMENTS in the PHOTO section. It's the equivalent of Graffiti. They can be transcribed in your own words in the BIO section.

I have transferred many memorials to management so FAMILY, regardless of the 4 generation rule, can have the memorial transferred to them. THEY ARE NOT THERE FOR COLLECTORS TO PICK UP! Please be respectful. If you have something to add, do so then return to #8 for families please. NOTE: When you take a memorial from FindaGrave management, you have to click a box that states you will turn over management to ANY relative, not just within the 4 generation rule. If my name is on a memorial, there's a good possibility that the memorial was taken from management and must be turned over to the relative upon request. Feel free to inquire but please give me the memorial number. I have seen several members who have taken on thousands of memorials and then have on their wall that they request patience while they try to update the many edits they get each day, that they receive "rude" messages about transfers or aren't accepting transfers out of the 4 generation rule. FindaGrave will deal with this. Please do report people who hoard memorials and then won't transfer or deal with edits. If you can't handle them, or don't want to transfer them, don't take them!

When a memorial is finished with a bio and transferred to management for FAMILY to pick up, taking it and changing the research that other volunteers have taken their time to do is disrespectful and rude to your fellow members and not in the spirit of FindaGrave collaboration. Facts can be corrected and/or added BELOW, but to just change the same info around is or delete someone's work is really WRONG. PLEASE have some RESPECT for your fellow FindaGraver's time and research!

PLEASE send your sources when sending edits. It is your responsibility to show that what you are suggesting is correct. If you cannot provide proof of your suggestion, your edit may be declined. Thank you. Genealogy not supported with proof is called Mythology.

NOTE: Rude messages will not be acknowledged and may be reported.

ATTENTION CHEATERS:
Management is well aware that people are purposely making duplicates and then putting in for merge to add info by bypassing the memorial manager. I am reporting these merges, especially for the cemetery that's already been gone over twice for duplicates, and we know none exist. If you are caught purposely making duplicates you could lose your privilege to be here. I am REPORTING THIS ABUSE OF THE SYSTEM TO MANAGEMENT. Think about it. Is sending an edit, or making a duplicate that's going to be scrutinized the way you want to lose your privilege of being here?
