  7. If the acknowledgee is a self-acknowledgee, be sure to check the box “Self-acknowledge Honor/Memorial” to avoid creating a duplicate self-acknowledgee record.                                                                         NOTE: Online Express does NOT include an option to Self-acknowledge Honor/Memorial.  If a tribute needs to be Self-acknowledged in Online Express, a Relationship record must be created in the Online Express plugin in order to process the transaction.  The relationship can be deleted out of The Raiser's Edge later if desired
