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)
THE STORY TELLERS
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..."

Anna, I am a grandchild of Edward Cargill Miner, son of John Ellsworth Miner. I am seeking more information about John and his wife Ida Maude (Wiley) Miner. Do you have some resources?
|Bill Coon||RE: Mary Ellen Harker, 71, of Wana|
Thanks Anna, but you still keep control, you were first. The important thing to me is that these folks are remembered. Some day we need to have a picnic of all the Gravers in this area. I think that would be neat.
|Bill Coon||Mary Ellen Harker, 71, of Wana|
I found your work in progress for Mrs. Harker after I finished mine, so I am transferring it to you. I thought it might save you some time. Feel free to delete or use it as you please. Thank you for what you do for our friends, who have passed on. The obit is from Fairmont Times, dated May, 19, 2019.
