Description

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Lake County Genealogical Society will present a tour of the Kelseyville Cemetery on Saturday, May 27.

The tour begins at 10 a.m. at the cemetery located at 3375 Bell Hill Road, Kelseyville. Meet at the walk-in gate on Lane "J.”

Starting off the tour will be a grave dowsing demonstration and instruction. This activity is used to locate bodies in unmarked graves.

Whether there was never a grave marker placed, or it disappeared due to fire or the elements, dowsing helps to determine if the plot is occupied.

While not as accurate as ground penetrating radar, grave dowsing is a less expensive alternative.

Older cemeteries often contain headstones which identify parent's names, but not their children. Identifying the number of children buried in a grave site helps a genealogist determine the number of family members to research.

Local genealogist Marilyn Guenther will conduct the tour. Wear comfortable walking shoes and a hat.

The 45-year-old nonprofit Lake County Genealogical Society maintains a research library of local families, along with other historic documents and is seeking a permanent home in Lakeport so the public can access the collection.
