Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname.

Updating My Memorials
Just wanted to say a hearty "thank you" for updating/adding/transcribing marker information to the memorials I have added that is written in Ukrainian.

It is very much appreciated. I'm glad to know someone is able to transcribe.

Hi Chris,

I too wondered about that so I checked the Alberta Genealogical Society list for her and they too have her listed as Baron. Perhaps I should add that it might be Baran as a "note"

Thanks for your observation.

Taphophilia is a wonderful disease to 'suffer' from isn't it?

RE: Soldiers and Sailors Lot, Mt Moriah
Simply stated, a duplicate is when two memorials exist for the same person regardless of the circumstances.

Wilhelm Schneider
Thank you for all of the work that you do! The Wilhelm Schneider you have added, d. 15 Jul 1918 in Frankreich (France) WWI, was my great uncle. He was born 27 Sep 1897 in Talheim, Wuerttemburg, Germany. That is missing from the findagrave record you added. Thank you!

Bill Berwyn memorial
Would you please transfer this memorial to my site. This is my dad and I'd like to maintain and add additional information.
Thanks, Teresa
