Next Meeting

June 14, 2014

Speaker: Mr. Harold George

Mr. George will share with us about Grave Dowsing. Dowsing is an age old art that has been used for centuries to locate water, graves, and other elements below the earth's surface, using a dowsing rod or wand.

Basic dowsing techniques will be presented. Those in attendance will be shown how to make their own dowsing rods. Program goals are: Provide insight into burial
practices observed throughout history, as well as during the Civil War; Provide techniques used for locating unmarked gravesites. Ideal for both Novice and Expert genealogists.

Everyone in attendance receives a free quick reference guide to grave dowsing. Immediately following the meeting all will be welcome to rejoin at Greenlawn Cemetery for a hands on demonstration.




 

Meetings are free and open to the public. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
