Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has become my newest addiction!

Taphophilia = an abnormal love for graves and cemeteries. The love of walking cemeteries and finding lost relatives and the gravesites of ancestors.


I would prefer that birth/death/marriage certificates not be posted to the memorials I have created. I prefer the space be made available for photos of the person since most of these documents are easily found online and can be transcribed to the bio area of the memorial.

These records, especially Death records, can contain private and sensitive information that family members may not want shared.

The addition is even less helpful if an edit request is not sent to have the pertinent information added to the memorial. Thanks for your cooperation!!

Please do not put photos of newspaper obits on the memorials. These take up limited spaces in the photo allotment. If you have an obit then please type it up and submit it through the edit option and I would be happy to add it to the bio section as long as the name of the newspaper and date of publication are included.


If you've never taken a few moments to spend time in the cemetery...You're really missing out. The peace and tranquility you find in them. Those that have gone before many times have left a final message on their tombstones. These messages are an inspiration and make me feel humbled and blessed! Go ahead...take the time...walk your local cemetery and read their messages and see how they reach out and touch you! You'll be glad you did! (quoted from another find-a-graver)


We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe.


"When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."

RE: Violet McIntyre
Thanks very much.

I was wondering how you get your information so fast? There have been several obituaries that I was going to add memorials for, mostly for sentimental reasons that you had already created. I appreciate the ones you have transferred to me. I just feel a little better if I could create them for the people I know. Not angry, just curious. Thanks.

RE: Tennant transfers
You are very welcome. I am a Tennant descendant as well, via my maternal grandmother.

Anna, I just transferred your grandparent's memorials to you. Sorry for the delay, I was out of town last week on vacation.

You have a memorial for Kenneth Carver in East Lawn Cemetery with birth and dates unknown. I have a photo with Kenneth N Carver Jr. with dates Feb. 18 - Mar. 8 1962. Would it be the same one?

I noticed you have taken several photos of the Beverly Cemetery including my great grandma's, do you have any idea how to contact someone that runs the cemetery? My great grandmother died about 16 years ago when I was just a kid and none of the adults took the time to make sure that they engraved the day she died. I am wanting to get this taken care of and don't know where to start. I figured the cemetery would be the best place but can't seem to find out how to contact them
