future genealogists as cremations do now.  Unless the ashes are buried or
entombed some where there will not be a marker to use for information.  I
have wondered what will become of ashes kept at home by a family member.  At
what point will the ashes be passed on to a later generation who does not
want them and may just throw them away.  It sound like this would at least
be a way of finding where someone was buried. 

 

Somewhere I saw an article where they can take the ashes and make some kind
of stone out of them and make them into jewelry.  I would not want one, but
other people do.

Good Morning All,

Here is a unique use for GPS.

The Green Funeral http://thegreenfuneral.com/about-us/ maintains cemeteries
of cremated remains (human & pet) for burials in a natural environment. So
instead of headstones they mark grave sites with trees labeled with GPS
markers. These markers can tell the stories of the buried via internet or
mobile phone.

What do you think of this alternative to traditional cemeteries?

Sincerely,
LaDonna
