I reported on July 27 (http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2007/07/mysterious-mess.html) that someone in Kings County, Nova Scotia has been typing short genealogical reports of deceased individuals, including census citations and other genealogical facts. The information is then placed in plastic sleeves and attached to sticks inserted in the ground adjacent to the tombstones of the individuals named. Visitors to the cemetery can easily read the information contained in the weatherproof sleeves.
Now the person leaving the genealogical reports has been identified, sort of...
A few workers at the Kings County Museum in Kentville, N.S. said that they were aware of the identity of the man as he often does research there, but have honored his wishes to remain anonymous. However, at their urging, the man has now stepped forward and agreed to be interviewed on television, as long as he was only shown in silhouette.
You can read more about him and his reasons for leaving these genealogical notes at http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20070802/ghost_writer/20070802?hub=TopStories.
You can also see a picture of the unidentified man at the same web site, in silhouette, of course.
