  • Ancestral Trails enjoys Mather’s presentation

    Ancestral Trails Historical Society met earlier this month with Steve Mather presenting a program on grave dowsing. He illustrated how it was done by using a male and female to lie on the floor and let the dowsing rods indicate the sex of the person. The dowsing rods can determine the height of the person also. The society hopes to have him return next spring and illustrate the art of grave dowsing at a local cemetery.

    The next meeting will be Nov. 6 at the public library in Elizabethtown.
