Group conducts 'grave dowsing' Saturday

LOWER LAKE – Members of the Lake County Genealogical Society have been visiting various pioneer cemeteries to test the validity of “grave Dowsing,” a way to find old graves.


Those taking part report it has been quite a rewarding experience and very successful. No scientific explanation of this technique has been offered but from their experience it really works.


It is said that 90 percent of humans have the capability to perform this type of divining. Even the novice dowsers have had great success. Some of the group's more experienced dowsers can even determine depth and gender and will demonstrate their techniques.


It is known that several unmarked graves exist in the historic Herndon Pioneer Cemetery, therefore this location makes for the perfect setting to continue this project.


The group plans to meet at the Herndon Cemetery on Saturday, March 15 at noon to try this out.


Member of the Genealogical Society, the Historical Society, the media and a few experienced dowsers have promised to attend. Join them in this unusual and interesting experience. All are welcome.


If you need direction please contact me. Several people will be meeting at the Lower Lake Brick Hall around 11:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and then will caravan to the site.


The grass, weeds and wild flowers were cut last year by the county and so now they are low but boots are recommended as the vegetation may be moist. They may be there for an hour or two so bring your own refreshments. Dowsing rods for those who do not have any will be provided.
