I am so thankful for FindAGrave.com and the wonderful service the company and the volunteers provide. I have enjoyed adding my own service to the mix. And, I refer to this website almost as often as I do FamilySearch.org or Ancestry.com.
However, I have a number of relatives whose memorials I would like to manage. I have a number of memorials that I have sent repeated updates for but can not get the memorial manager to make changes.
I respectful understand that life gets busy and volunteers with hundreds of requests can often lose the requests. However, after multiple attempts and 9 months, how can I get a response? At this point, I just want to have the transfer of my relatives and I’ll let the corrections on memorials not directly related to be good.
I have enjoyed the emails when I submit a request using the form method (see below). I think the processing is insanely faster. I submitted 6 corrections and received an “Edit Processed” confirmation email within 24 hours. Yep. Fast. But not every correction submission looks like this. Why? They really should.

I know Tech Tuesday is supposed to be about tips for using Technology with Genealogy. However, I’m in need of reverse tips. Tips to help me get the answers I need for transferring information and suggestion that the Submit Edit Request forms apply to all the memorials.
