Taphophilia describes those folks with a "love of cemeteries and funerals".
All you Genealogists, and others, who like to stroll around graveyards, and share your findings online, apparently have a word to describe yourselves, as The Taphophile's Handbook website says, "without sounding like strange sexual perverts." ;-D
The Taphophile's Handbook is "A Guide to Collections, and Celebrations, Plus Alternatives to Vandalism, and Theft, and is a fascinating site.
Wikipedia says: Taphophilia is a passion for and enjoyment of cemeteries.
Taphophilia involves epitaphs, gravestone rubbing, photography, art, and history of deaths, both of the famous, and the ordinary.
Sheila, of the blog Ma Vie Folle, shared her thoughts, and some absolutely wonderful photos, on her blog, last November:
Yeah, so I like cemeteries. I admit it.
“Hello, my name is Sheila, and I am a Taphophile”
I wonder if this is where, when I walk through the cemetery gates everyone yells “Sheila!” like in Cheers. Hmmmmm, I hope not, considering most people in the cemetery are pretty much dead.
She took her kids "Cemetery Hopping" to, um, visit Her Grandma's ancestors, and neighbors. ;-D
