Shanna Riley March 23rd, 2007
Welcome to my graving blog.
My name is Shanna Riley (aka skatoolaki) and I've loved cemeteries and graveyards since childhood. The hobby of graving, which suited me perfectly, I discovered after stumbling upon the Find A Grave website while looking for a place to memorialize online a friend who had recently died.
I am always trying to find the graves of my ancestors - most of whom are interred in the Avoyelles Parish or Pointe Coupee Parish areas. When I find family members, I add them to Find A Grave and to my ancestry website, Louisiana Lineage.
I created this blog to share my hobby with others who might enjoy the same. I spend a good deal of my free time "graving" - going to cemeteries, taking photos, and recording information. Sometimes I just go for the pleasure of going - no camera or notepad. My experiences have been interesting, disturbing, intriguing, but always fun.
