HAR provides technical assistance in identifying the presence and location of unmarked graves using state-of-the-art electronic subsurface imaging technologies. We also offer precision survey and graphic illustration of site surface features to augment existing cemetery data. Accurate site maps are another very important and essential facet of cemetery research and documentation. HAR has been involved in more than 120 cemetery projects since adding these services in 2000. During 2013, we will continue working with township trustees and cemetery commissions throughout Indiana and neighboring states.

of freedom and a special kind of courage.
