As long as we remember, they never die!

“Now I’ve heard everything!”. The older one gets, the more often one might say that. Yet the world keeps surprising. This morning I discovered that someone sells gravestone cleaning solution kits!

Don’t get me wrong, I think it is a great idea. They say that solving puzzles causes a dopamine rush which in turn causes addictive behavior. Which, they go on to say, is how genealogy can become addictive! Let me warn you, finding “lost” tombstones can also become addictive.

This picture is known as “The Genealogist Adventure Park.”. A copy of it is hanging in the Monterey Family History Center in Seaside.

This picture is of a genealogist getting a dopamine rush!

And this picture is of a tombstone cleaning kit which is available to buy at Billiongraves.com. Next time you go sleuthing for someone’s grave site and you know it is going to be an old one, perhaps you should carry a bottle of D/2 Biological Solution. Just to honor your ancestor, of course.

How To Clean

What makes this especially rewarding is that just last night at the MoCoGenSo Board meeting, we discussed creating a “tour a graveyard” excursion for locals in the Monterey County area. If you are interested, contact any Board member. See Board of Directors
