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 â€œpersonal digital assistants,â€ 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 PDAâ€™s adapter to a dime-sized memory chip on their headstone.

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