Software for cemetery visitors

A column by Mike Caggeso, at York Daily Record (York, PA), mentions new software that can be used in a cemetery to help you learn about the people buried there.

The software, called Memory Medallion, is a personalized e-pitaph that visitors can access using handheld computers called “personal digital assistants,” or PDAs for short.

Cemetery employees will allow guests to borrow PDAs, which can access a 600-word obituary and picture of the deceased by touching the PDA’s adapter to a dime-sized memory chip on their headstone.

The software, Memory Medallion, is available from Greene Ventures, Inc.
