Technology Brings Digital Memories To Grave Sites

Digital codes are placed on tombstones so that anyone visiting a grave can immediately know more about the person to whom they are visiting.

Loved ones record the history of the departed with details about their life and stories that may help to record their history. Any smartphone can run the application to access the free app to retrieve the information about the departed. 

Digital Memorial Markers include both a stainless steel plaque that references your web site through its code and an intuitive set of tools to effectively help you create your online memorial.

 

   

Our QR Plaques can refer to flexible destinations. You can point your QR Plaque to familysearch.organcestry.com, or any other memorial website of your choice and the plaque destination can be changed to a new location at any time.

Many sites are available on the web for your use at low or no cost. For those that don’t have an online memorial, we offer a mobile-optimized website and companion administration tool to create your own customized QR memorial.

How it works

The central feature that makes QR Memorials work is the Quick Response (QR) code. This symbol can be read by a special program on your smartphone which extracts a web reference (URL) from the encoded black and white squares and then displays this web page in your phone’s browser. You can search for “QR Reader” in the iOS App Store or Android Market to easily find any number of programs that scan QRCodes.

1. We send you the QR Memorial Plaque  

    • To harness the power of QR codes, QR Memorials laser-engraves a unique code on a stainless steel plaque that can be attached to a headstone or other memorial of your departed loved ones

2. You register Your QR Memorial

    • The encoded URL inside the engraved QR code refers to a special web site that you automatically construct through our web application. First, you create a login ID, and register the unique number on the plaque. QR Memorials will then provide you tools to create text, upload images, and type in references to online video, etc. so that you can augment your physical memorial with an electronic one. By using our application, there is no need for special web development skills, to create a compelling memorial to highlight the life of your loved one.
3. Your Custom Routing Capabilities
    • Our QR Plaques can refer to flexible destinations. You can point your QR Plaque to new.familysearch.com, ancestry.com, or any other memorial website of your choice and the plaque destination can be changed to a new location at any time. Many sites are available on the web for your use at low or no cost. For those that don’t have an online memorial, we offer a mobile-optimized website and companion administration tool to create your own customized QR memorial.
4. You attach the Plaque to your Memorial
    • The QR plaque has special adhesive on its reverse side so that it can be attached to the memorial stone. With careful application and choice of location, this plaque will remain attached through all weather conditions, cemetery maintenance, and time. We suggest mounting it on the surrounding concrete so that you don’t risk damaging the granite of the memorial stone. Yet it can still help visitors easily find this special enhancement to your loved one’s memorial.
