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.


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!


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: Lane photos
It was my pleasure. I just wish I'd had more time to search more while I was out that way! Glad the photos I did take were helpful. :)

RE: Duplicates
You're welcome. I've found a lot made by Jake Duffy who has passed away so I'll have to let Admin know about them. Finally got the Sitka Cemetery straightened out and merged with Old Dutch Cemetery as they are one in the same. I was hoping to get down that way this year but it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

re: obit Nelouise Goush
I got it, if you click on "print obituary" it opens a version that you can copy and paste

Buried in Lower Salem Twp cemetery; 128201473. Could you please transfer her to me, Lucky at 48468609. She is daughter of Henry and Bertha May Stack which you transferred to me earlier.
Lot of Stacks. I'm trying to find all the children's gravesites and link to Henry and Bertha. Thanks again for your help. You have done a lot of hard work and us latecomers appreciate it. Ken

RE: Sitka Cemetery
Thanks, I also emailed Eric at the library. If they are the same I will ask for them to be merged.
