QR Code Created for the BIN

The Briles Information Network has created a QR Code for Mount Pleasant Community Church Cemetery Site. These codes will be placed on selected tombstones in the cemetery. (also called Living Tombstones). We will be installing these codes on Briles markers for our family only as a test case to see how they work and how many people visit certain cemeteries. If you have a smart phone, you can scan the QR Code which will direct you to the memorial site. Once we create a memorial site for each cemetery, a new QR Code will be created, placed at the cemetery and a link will be placed on this site. The memorial sites will contain videos, pictures, and information about the deceased. The memorial site for Mount Pleasant Community Church Cemetery is now ready!
