Bio and Links
Bio Photo Taphophilia (a passion and enjoyment of cemeteries) has been my main hobby since the late 1970's when I was a junior in high school. I discovered that cemeteries in and around Los Angeles were the best places to hide from truant officers. It was in these adopted sanctuaries that I began to appreciate my surroundings: the grounds, the headstones, the architecture, the artwork and most importantly, the residents.

In October of 2010, I founded The Traveling Taphophiles, a group that sets out once a month to visit cemeteries. Our travels have taken us as far as New Orleans. I'm fortunate to have met others that share my hobby and to have forged some great friendships along the way.

Once photos have been posted, feel free to use them as you wish - photo credit isn't necessary.

Happy Graving ~

Louis DuMort

I miss Chris and Martha with all my heart.

Lauren Becall
Hi - your name is on the Lauren Becall page. Do you know where she is buried at Forest Lawn Glendale? There is no marker on her husband's niche - Humphrey Bogart. Why is no location given on Find A Grave? Maybe she isn't even there?

I am so glad you got the image removed, Louis. You're certainly respected in the findagrave community and they listen to you. I've been fortunate that they also have granted a request or two of mine, so they know we do our best to make the site the best it can be. Sending you and your family the best wishes for a lovely Christmas! Thanks for all you do! - Christian
