Dear Members,

Thanks so much for all your hard work.  Please take the time to visit the Indiana Historical Bureau's Cemetery Commission Report  page http://www.statelib.lib.in.us/www/ihb/cemeteries/cemcomrpt.html to see how the data you generated is being used.  Long-forgotten cemeteries continue to be found.  We would like for you to help us continue this project next summer.

In the mean time, we have our eye on a G.P.R. (Ground Penetrating Radar) device used to detect unmarked graves.  We are applying for grant monies to purchase one and think that showing the grant agency the progress made this summer will enhance our chances of receiving the money.  Hopefully, you'll be able to lean to use a G.P.R. next summer!  Here's a preview of what G.P.R. is & what it does: http://www.savinggraves.org/education/bookshelf/gpr.htm

Best wishes from your friends & colleagues at
