Forest Lawn Memorial Park adds QR codes to tombstones

ERLANGER, KY (FOX19) - Forest Lawn Memorial Park is adding something new to tombstones.

Tombstones will not only include a name and birth and death dates, but also a QR code. The Cincinnati-based company Making Everlasting Memories, or MeM, patented the technology behind the Family Heritage Registry, which allows families to share stories of their loved ones using their mobile devices.

The QR code will take smart phones users to a customized online memorial.
