    Welcome to the historic Daughters of Zion cemetery. 
    We're pleased you would like to hear more about the notable and impressive families buried here.

     I'd like to take a minute or two to review a few handy hints on how best to use this app and once we've done that, all you need to do is put in your ear buds, select start, stick your phone in your pocket, and start walking. Because you see, each of the stops will automatically trigger when you get nearby, and tell you the story of that family plot. Each story will play through no matter where you wander, and not repeat, so no need to worry about doubling back.

    At any time, here or at home, you would like to skip a story, just press the small fast forward button, next to the larger play button.

    Each stop also comes with mages, often historic. To access these, tap on the thumbnail image as a story plays, and then tap the image again the image which enables you to swipe through all the images.

    First let's be sure the settings on your phone are optimal.
    Be sure your phone volume is up and that the location setting is turned on. It's also best to download the tour using a wi-fi connection. 

    When you're ready to go on the tour, you might want to check to see if it has been updated - that's right next to START button. Then press START to get to the first page with a map indicating each stop. While you're on this page, just check to see that your ear speaker is on if you're using ear buds or a bluetooth and off if you want to hear it aloud. That setting is in the upper right hand menu (those 3 bars at the top right).

    The TOUR ITINERARY option at the bottom of the map allows you to manually take the tour at any time and to access the images and text..

    To walk it, select start and let's get on our way.... 

    I'll meet you at the historic marker

    What a truly remarkable resource for our community. The photos, the audio, the stories... everything is so thoughtfully prepared. We are lucky to have the memories of these families preserved in this way. Thank you to the efforts of Edwina and Bernadette all the others who worked to create this resource to share with us!

    Thank you. Last fall I was researching Edward Watts Fleming and his Iowa family. I found where he was buried. However, I just found this audio tour. I will be passing this on to his descendants. Thank you to Megan smolenyak who gave a grant that lead me here. Ricki King
