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! (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..."

Hi Anna I am starting to look in to my past starting with my grandparents I only saw a few times as a small child and lived many miles away. I found the web site Find a Grave and put my Grandpa's name in John W Wigal and boom it poped up. You built the page on 2-2014

Betty Lou Gessel Schenkel memorial
Hi Anna,
I am Betty Schenkel's son. Thanks for creating her memorial. I was wondering if you would transfer the maintenance of the memorial to me.
Thank you,
Timothy Schenkel

Kathryn Hammett Gordon
Sullivan/Mulligan
Anna, I am not sure if I asked before. I would like to use the photos of John Sullivan's gravemarker and also that for Katie Sullivan Mulligan on my Ancestry tree. May I have your permission to do so. I will be sure to give you credit for the photos so that anyone transferring them will also transfer the information with them. Kathryn

shuman toothman cemetery
when you photographed in this cemetery....was it past McCurdysville Cemetery and way up on a hill.....I only knew it as Toothman cemetery...I just added a couple of names after removing them from another cemetery...I am rather confused.....this cemetery is way past Baxter
