|Bio and Links|
Taphophilia (a passion and enjoyment of cemeteries) has been my main hobby since the late 1970's when I was a junior in high school. I discovered that cemeteries in and around Los Angeles were the best places to hide from truant officers. It was in these adopted sanctuaries that I began to appreciate my surroundings: the grounds, the headstones, the architecture, the artwork and most importantly, the residents.|
In October of 2010, I founded The Traveling Taphophiles, a group that sets out once a month to visit cemeteries. Our travels have taken us as far as New Orleans. I'm fortunate to have met others that share my hobby and to have forged some great friendships along the way.
Once photos have been posted, feel free to use them as you wish - photo credit isn't necessary.
Happy Graving ~
I miss Chris with all my heart.

|JMM||Thank you so much!|
I'm grateful for the time you took to find my great grandfather and great grandmother's tombstones for me. I'm just starting my ancestry journey and am so impressed at the willingness of the community to help one another. I'm visiting my mom in a few weeks and she'll be thrilled to see these photos too. Thank you from both of us.

Hi Louis. My name is Shawnee. I married Harvey's son last year. We would love to get in touch with you, and other family members, if possible. Please contact me at redthunder64 at gmail.

Thank you for being the one who got approved for the Prince memorial. I see your name a lot for famous entries and it's nice that F.A.G. trusts your entries to be fair and accurate :)
