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.

Your page for Martin Landau incorrectly gives his birthday as Jan. 20. His birthday is June 20. Just FYI. Thanks..Kevin

Great job on Leon Russell's bio. so many people write these the day they died and just do a couple paragraphs on them.

Larry Drake memorial
This person's memorial page shows his DOB at Feb. 21, 1950. However, Wikipedia lists the date as, Feb 21, 1949.

Michael Noth
correct date of death
HI Louis,

My mother was Jeanne Parr-Noth. She was the mother of 3 sons, my brothers (from oldest to youngest), Charles James Noth II, Michael Parr Noth, and Christopher David Noth (TV star). The correct date of my mother's death is May 19th, 2016, NOT May 23rd. She died on the island of Maui, Hawaii and was cremated.

Thanks for your work in genealogy.

I am trying to correct a memorial message I left for Gwen, but Find a Grave is not allowing it. Can you help?
