We are in the process of placing small "QR" codes
next to some of the headstones in the cemetery.
You will be able to use your smart phone, and a
barcode or QR code reader, to link to information
about the person buried there. NOTE: as of 8/1/14, there are
approx 30 "QR" codes next to headstones. We will see how they hold
up, and if they are still good in a year or so, we will add more.
