While working with FindaGrave and FTM I try to link as many people as possible and submit corrections for any missing info. This is helpful to everyone, especially since FindaGrave is free and accessible to everyone.
When you find a record in FindaGrave that needs a link to Father/Mother/Spouse:
- First gather all of the Find A Grave Memorial numbers you can for Father/Mother/Spouse. These numbers are located at the bottom of each memorial. You need to get these numbers BEFORE submitting an edit because FindaGrave will only process one relationship edit at a time. I copy the numbers into my Text Edit program to hold them until the next step.
- In FindaGrave click the Edit tab and then ‘Relationship (parent and spouse links)’.
- Add the numbers. Be sure to add a marriage year if you know it. It doesn’t add the year to the memorial but will put the marriages in order if there is more than one. Perhaps they will add this info down the road (hint to FindaGrave). Click Submit Edit.
That is all there is to it. Easy peasey!
