Technology meets history
It has been three years since the last update. A few burials have taken place, but since the cousin who appointed himself king of the cemetery chooses not to speak to us, we're not sure who they are.
Today a technician from Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc., scanned the area and identified about eight unmarked grave sites. The ground is damp, which was less than ideal, but Jeremy said he was able to get adequate readings. We will have a written report in about two weeks. Meanwhile, here are some photos taken during the procedure. The white flags indicate where a grave site was noted. (Click on the photo for a larger view.)
I took a couple of videos of the radar in action. Unfortunately, they exceed the size limit for posting here and I'm not savvy enough to be able to reduce the size. If you'd like to see them, say so in the comment section below. I will email them to you.
