About Jean a Boling
Jean Boling has been spending her days in Josephine County cemeteries for twenty years, photographing, cleaning, and discovering. She maintains a database of over 15,000 names and has photos and documents on over 13,000. She is the cemetery researcher for the Josephine County Historical Society and has written two books on Josephine County history, plus a guide to the cemeteries. This Field Guide has been 10 years in the making, and she's sure she has forgotten something that really, really needed to be included. While she holds the copyright for her work, all profits go to the Josephine County Historical Society.
