Integrating Technology for Montana’s Historic Cemeteries

Online Registration Closed June 1, 2018

Join The Montana History Foundation for a 3-day introduction to the vast array of technology available for preserving Montana’s cemeteries.

Walking through a historic cemetery invokes a quiet grandeur as the history buried in the ground comes alive, but that history is too easily lost to time. This workshop will include captivating analysis from over a dozen experts in varying technological fields, exciting demonstrations of tech in an actual cemetery, and engaging field trips to learn more about Montana’s cemeteries.
