October is the spookiest month of the year, so a story about gravesite dowsing seemed in order for Halloween Eve-Eve, I guess you could call it. The article title pretty much encompasses the range of opinion regarding the subject, although I have to say a brief survey I conducted most decidedly leaned toward the “just plain hooey” side.
Since, personally, I don’t really have an opinion (yet) one way or the other, I hope nonetheless you’ll find the article objective, informative, balanced — and hopefully interesting! And oh, please do tell me what you think — science, wizardry, witchcraft or just plain hooey?
This article has been removed from the blog, but will be included in the September-October 2019 issue of our digital publication — Digging History Magazine. Speaking of spooky, the October 2018 issue of the magazine was especially so — murder, strange lights, UFOs, American poltergeist and more! Video preview here.
Since January 2018 new articles are published in a digital magazine (PDF) available by individual issue purchase or subscription (with three options). Most issues run between 70-85 pages, filled with articles of interest to history-lovers and genealogists — it’s all history, right? 🙂 No ads, just carefully-researched stories, complete with footnotes and sources.
