- Oct 17, 2005Hello Everyone,
Made a visit to Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville KY, this past
Sunday. Beautiful weather, took alot of pictures, overall a wonderful
cemetery. I even saw the burial place of Colonel Harland Sanders,
founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken. I looked around carefully but
there wasn't a chicken bone to be found anywhere.
A couple of quick questions. On the following website
http://geonames.usgs.gov/redirect.html you can download individual
State and Topical Gazetteers. They will give you listings of various
historic places as well as cemeteries. Part of the information is
Latitude and Longitude numbers. I'm just beginning to research GPS
recievers but haven't yet found this out. Can you enter Latitude and
Longitude into a GPS and recieve directions and an address to this
destination. Also I see that Microsoft has a program that includes a
plugin GPS for notebook computers. "Microsoft Streets and Trips 2006
with GPS locator." Does anyone have experience with GPS recievers
and/or Microsofts program?
Also I would be interested in hearing about peoples favorite
cemeteries and their locations. My main interest is collecting
epitaphs and taking photos of statuary and various monuments.
Thanks in advance for all reponses. Jim
