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)


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..."

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.
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!!

Hello Anna, I saw your message regarding a photo for this soldier killed in Vietnam. Although I do not know him, I had a cousin killed in Vietnam and my brother died from Agent Orange exposure while in Vietnam. Are you aware of the site called The Virtual Wall? It lists those KIA in Vietnam and you can leave virtual messages. Just thought I'd tell you about it.

Feather Transfers
You have compiled the most data for this Family Group so you should manage them. Be sure to check for duplication. I could not find memorials for these family members but that doesn't mean they don't exist. ~ Jack

Hi Jack:
checking to see why you transferred the five (5) Feather memorials to me? I did not ask for the transfers so I was a bit confused when I received them. Let me know if you want them back or if I should keep them.

Michael Joseph McGee
Hello, Anna!

Would you kindly delete the "Find A Grave" memorial that you created for Michael Joseph McGee, Memorial #141331040. It is a duplicate of the one that I created for him on January 12, 2015 (Memorial #141254283).

Michael was my nephew (my sister's son), and he was like a little brother to me. I created his "Find A Grave" memorial just minutes after I learned of his passing, and I posted a photo of him in the hospital which was taken a little more than two months before his death.

Thanking you in advance.

RE: Anna Roach
Thank you Anna for such a quick reply. Been working on this all day and I think we now know it was Frederick. It's still a mystery where he was buried in 1829. That cemetery may have gone out of use by the time Anna died though.

Hello. I'm very much interested in your memorial to Anna from the Mason Cemetery. She was my 3rd great grandmother. Can you tell me what the inscription says? It's not clear from the picture. I was hoping it contained the name of her husband. One relative told me it was Frederick, but some new evidence has come up that it was John. In fact that new evidence was the statement from her son Alonzo. We are pursuing both names without much luck. Thanks. Bob Brown
