Dousing for the Dead

Yesterday at the cemetery, as we were spending quality time with a few headstones and wondering about the empty spaces between, I told my friend Michelle about this article, describing a process by which burial places are found by "witching." Makes you want to go out and try it, doesn't it? (Thanks to Heather for the link)

Here's a video... pretty weird!

On another topic: A cemetery caretaker in Texas would rather not have you show up and take photographs of headstones with your digital camera. Read more here.


  1. I thought it was sad that the caretaker in Texas was so against people taking photos of the graves. Pictures of the gravestones are a valuable genealogical resource.

  2. I'm going to say something really rude: protecting the dead from identity theft is just goofy. No dead person is going to come back from the dead and need to buy a house, only to find his credit is ruined. It's a victimless crime (except in the case of the couple digging up the body).

    It doesn't make it right, but let's give us a break here.
