I have been using ancestry and find a grave for several years. Earlier this month I requested that Sherri correct an ancestor's name on find a grave. She refused. I asked her what documentation she needed to make this correction and she did not respond to me. I told my cousin about the situation. He is in his 90s and doesn't do too much on the computer so I helped him sign up for find a grave so he could request a transfer as I am not able to make that request. Below are the emails my elderly cousin sent. These were sent after the emails I sent to Sherri:


My name is John B**** W*******. I am the son of Willie Williams. I am requesting that my father's memorial be transferred to me. I had my cousin make this request on my behalf as I am in my 90s; however, she explained that you would not respond to her. She explained that you did not have to transfer the memorial to her but you are required by Find a Grave to transfer it to me.

Thank you for your help in this matter,

Good Evening,

I have not heard back from you about my father's memorial. I will be contacting Find A Grave if I have not heard from you by tomorrow night. I don't understand why you are being so difficult about transferring my father's memorial to me. As I told you before, I am in my 90s and it is important to me that I am able to honor my father through this memorial.

Excuse me? This is the very first message I have received from you and I don't appreciate your rude comments and threats. I imagine though, this isn't a 90 year old but his daughter or niece named Mary Lynne. Now, because of the threats, you can reach out to Find-A-Grave and have them transfer the marker... I certainly won't make this easy on you. - Sherri

I don't think this qualifies as kind act. As you can imagine, my cousin is very upset...
