Bio and Links

My family research started in 1980.

In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

Rural Cemetery (Rockland Co)
Hi there,
I see you created the Rural Cemetery. But not knowing where it might be located too.
Ive managed to find two references to a "Nyack Rural Cemetery". Though not sure exactly where it might be located, Id suggest adding "Nyack" to the address.

might want to include in the description.
"Rural Hill Cemetery of Nyack"
"Nyack Rural Cemetery"

Just a thought, thanks.

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph the burial place of Nicola Dell'Aglio (especially in this heat!!). I appreciate you indicating the grave location in the absence of a stone. Thanks for your help!
