Not resolved

Hi, I am BJS #48745848.I have been researching for over 8 years now through ancestors.com, books, and personal interviews of my husband, and my family line.

I only have 48 Memorials that I manage and have made 9 Memorials. While I love *** I am still finding people who refuse to transfer ownership to me when they are my direct line. I really need help with Suki Davey #47883436 who has refused me my direct Great-Grandparents about 3 times. I have asked politely and her last comment was for me to understand the hundreds of hours people have spent in research and time.

Also, she told me, a transfer does not have to happen automatically. I would like to manage Alberic Mondville, #128068862, as He is my direct Great- Pepere, and my direct great-Memere Leocadie Levesque dit Lafrance Mondville #128068996. They are not in SUKI DAVEY direct French blood line. She has practically the entire St.

Joseph Cemetery in Biddeford, Maine.

This is not right as I have many, many family members there and they are not hers.Help!

I liked: Helping future generation relatives find pertinent.

I didn't like: Inactive memorial manager, Getting screwed over, Disrespect.

Are they your actual great grandparents (not 2nd, 3rd or more)?

What do you mean by ACTUAL? What else would they be?

Many people requesting a transfer say "great grandparent" when the "actual" relationship is 2nd great grandparent, 3rd great grandparent, 4th great grandparent, etc.

If a family requests a transfer of 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th grandparents and they are not YOUR family ---- Then transfer all of them to the family who wishes to have them and WHO they belong too. Family members can do a much better job with Biographies as these people are their biological family members!

Simple fix versus whining here about it.
Determine if you REALLY REALLY REALLY NEED to have management of the entries.
If you feel you do, send an email to Support@findagrave dot com with links to the memorials for your great-grandparents.
In this email, request transfers of these great-grandparents to your account based on the four-generation Family First rule. CLEARLY state your relationship to the deceased.
WAIT - it will not happen overnight but these entries WILL be transferred to you within a few weeks. This family relationship is a required transfer UNLESS the memorial manager is more closely related.
Then move on and do something to make a difference on the site versus being a gimme-grabber - you've made 9 entries but manage 48? You are a relative collector.

They are NOT closer related to my grandparents! They are insane BULLIES & GREEDY SICKOS! Most are not even related ......not even 20 generations back! Orrrr whatever!

I'd bank on it that nasty corrupt people there on *** are nasty and corrupt in the same manner outside of ***. Mean people have NO FRIENDS in-or-out of ***-- So these lesser than Jack A's called morons with lower than low mental capacities are NOT very intelligent!--- Mark my word they are not in any way Genealogists? They are copy cats, thieves and hoarders! These whacks sit around daily on their BIG puter-butts confiscating material from others with nothing else to do in their pitiful lives - what a farce!

You cannot determine if someone is related "20 generations" back - that's THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of descendants at that point. And when you get past the point of the required 4 generation transfer, you ABSOLUTELY can have multiple Find A Grave members with the same relationship distance from the deceased. I know of at least 7 Find A Grave members who can all claim they are 3rd great grandchildren of one man (including me). Who gets the memorial when several of them ask for it? HMMMM???????
REGARDLESS, the site is for DOCUMENTING GRAVE SITES - it was NOT created as a family genealogy site and years ago there WAS NO TRANSFERRING ANYWAY. - and when you get all upset over not having management you are trying to make the site something it's not. Want to have an entry the way you want it? Start your own site. Join Ancestry and create a family tree and add thousands of people just the way you want. GROW UP and GROW A PAIR. I just love to read the rants that people have when they are actually told NO regarding a transfer. Then the ugly name calling and public posting about how horrible that person is because they won't "give" you control. AND in this case , IF the entries are for your GREAT GRANDPARENTS, it's a REQUIRED transfer and with a LITTLE EFFORT on your part, Find A Grave WILL give you management of the entries!!!! But no, you have to come over here and God knows where else to COMPLAIN and MOAN and show your HIND END over a situation like this!! I hope you

*** grave has changed completely since AncestryDOT COM now own it! And YES it is now a genealogy website. It is also much better! And it is NOW all about genealogy! The only problem with *** is that it needs to clean up the oldie-bullies and all the crazy-whacks off there and then it will be perfect!

There are a few people on *** who were never taught in their childhood how to share with others. They are stingy, stinky, arrogant, hateful bullies! There are better words for these people, but I wont use the words here. :O
