|Bio and Links|
Hi, my name is Tiffany and I live in Virginia Beach, VA.|
I have been fascinated by old cemeteries my entire life and have dabbled in genealogy since early 2000. I love old grave markers because they have a story to tell; they have character. These markers should be treasured and celebrated, yet far too many have not faired well over the years.
I've been photographing grave markers for years and am now getting around to posting them all. I will post whatever photos I have, regardless if someone else has already posted photos or not. I hope this doesn't offend any other photo takers - I am doing this so the next time my hard drive crashes at least all my hard work is documented somewhere! I'm on my 4th or 5th computer if that is any indication...
I live in Virginia, but my favorite cemeteries lies in the heart of Louisville. I tend to take photos of markers around those which I am looking for myself. I am partial to older stones that will likely fade over time, long-forgotten or poorly managed lots, and those of military veterans. I am happy to hunt for photo requests, but many people in my locality are able to get to them more quickly than myself.
Anyway, much of my research success can be attributed to the kindness of others and the efforts of people like myself who take the time to make their own information available on the Internet. I hope my effort will somehow "return the favor."

Hi Tiffany, I was writing to you on Francis' edit tab when I hit something on this smartphone and accidentally sent it. Maybe you can figure out what I was saying about the transfers. Check out Helen Warrum Chappell's memorial in Crown Hill Cem. In Indianapolis.In.and you will see how I manage them. Thank You,Jim

Good morning, Tiffany.
If you haven't seen this group before, I think you might find it interesting. I have stories to tell. :)
Hope you are doing ok.
|Diane Bland||Mary Tinker and William H. Morrison|
Tiffany, thank you so much for adding the obituary notice on William H. Morrison
(45972642) to his Memorial Page. It was a great addition. I see that the page was added July 23, 2013 which is the date of my birthday. Great job and thanks again.

Could you. Add location for these graves.
East side of hwy 615 at the old fire station. Next to Bessie lane. Surrounded by iron fence.
|Jennaphie||RE: Margarette and Edgar Church|
Margarette and Edgar are my beloved grandparents. I live in Florida and they're buried in Virginia. The last time I was in VA was for my grandmother's funeral ten years ago and I haven't been able to return since then and have never seen her headstone - until I found your picture of it online. Thank you for taking/posting a photo of my grandparents final resting place. Seeing it means more than you could know.

Thanks for your kind words. If you ever get back here and plan a visit to Eastern, let me know, and we can troll the grounds together. :)
|paul chasteen||RE: Anthony Chasteen|
Tiffany, Thanks for your note. I would love to learn more about your grandmother Chasteen line.
The information I have on Arnold Lee Chasteen, Jr (4 Dec 1954--7 June 2007) was that his mother was Clara Ann Niemeyer.
[Find A Grave memorial # 19787278]
I have ancestors born in Jefferson County, KY, but I don't have a Carol A Trybus.
my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to know more about Anthony Lee chasteen & Carol A Trybus. I don't have any of their children in my tree.
Can you give me your grandmother name, birth info and her husband name. I'm trying to "connect the dots" and find another cousin.
|Cheryl Justice||RE: West Lawn Cemetery|
Thank you for the photo of Benjamin Nathan Basnight. I hope you might be able to help us with other photos in the future.
Thank you for the additional info.

Would rather have done this via email, however...Hope you are doing well. With regards to my dealings with findagrave, I think the last paragraph of my profile explains it better than I could:
"Management of all records has been transferred to a friend. I have finally given up on findagrave due to the emails from those only interested in numbers, claiming "ownership" of cemeteries, or just the general overall rudeness and apparent lack of common sense or intelligence of some."
I've pretty much had enough of those types of email messages I have received in the past few months, and since I believe I've done about all I can with Eastern Cemetery, it's time to check that off my bucket list. I haven't been back to Eastern for a couple of months, nor have I spent time with Phil DiBlasi in that time...the desire has been etched out of me.
I am contemplating doing one last go through, repeating what I've done already, and taking a photograph of every memorial, to include those that I can't read anything off of, this time. Then, that will be my last foray into Eastern Cemetery, once that is done.
I wanted to personally contact you and tell you this, as you've honored me by listing me as a friend. I will always be around if there's something you'd like to search for from Eastern Cemetery, or need something somewhere else. All you have to do is contact me directly, and if I can get it or already have it, then obviously, it's yours. I do have copies of a database of informational searches done over the years by Dr. DiBlasi's grad students, a copy of entries from 1915-1950 (for Eastern), a list of lot owners, and a copy of the burial maps for the entire cemetery. Let me know if there's anything I can do.
Take care. Please feel free to delete this "book message" if you like.
