The online article includes a picture of Rodentown resident Wayne Gregg in the midst of a demonstration on the art of grave dowsing. Gregg used the rods to effectively identify the gender, positioning and even the height of bodies buried in the cemetery as he showed how grave dowsing is a useful tool in the study of genealogy.
Gregg said his interest in dowsing started in 1963 when he worked for a telephone company. “The old cable guys knew how to locate cable using dowsing rods,” said Gregg, the recording secretary for NEAGS. “What I hope to do is kindle an interest in genealogy and the use of grave dowsing in genealogy.”

Does this work? Lots of eyewitnesses claim that it does. Many former skeptics became believers after watching dowsing in operation. I have seen dowsing work well for finding water pipes and sewer pipes buried in my front lawn but have never had an opportunity to watch a dowser find graves. Does anyone else have experience with dowsing for graves?
