Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family research started in 1980. I enjoy helping others in their family research.

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.

RE: Isaak Bibo
Good Morning,

I would guess that "Florence" is Florence Marmor?

I a read an article she wrote for on Mokom Sholom after I discovered Isaak and Veronica and the cemetery last week.

Thank you for passing along my interest to her.

I'll just keep all this tucked away in the back of my brain and see if I can come up with any cunny plan :)

I am discovering/making contact with unexpected relations all the time in the last few months, maybe I can connect with some in New York :)

Peace and Joy,

RE: Isaak Bibo
You are the second person this week who has kindly written to me re genealogy while on vacation.

The "kindness of strangers" is always a joy for me.
Thank you, again.

And do you know of any organization that is working on the restoration of the Mokom Sholom Cemetery.
Although I'm on the other side of the continent, I'd like to help if I could.

Have a wonderful vacation.

peace and joy,

RE: Isaak Bibo
As with Veronica, I very well may be related to Isaak as well. But as with Veronica, I have not had a chance to really research it.

But I have found that Bibo is even more uncommon than Schluchter. It's a small "tribe" :)

Again, I just wanted to tend his "grave site" and to some how recognize the Mokom Sholom Cemetery as well.

John O'Brien
I was looking through the listing of Pelham Cemetery when I noticed two memorials for John O'Brien. It was submitted early in 2009 by someone else, and yours was submitted at the end of that year. Just FYI

RE: Alexander Cohen
Trinity eh? At one time was trying to match up the list of people from a newspaper listing (very basic) at St. John's Cemetery (now James J. Walker Park) with the places they were moved to when the markers, and hopefully the people, were moved before it was "en-parked" or "de-graved". Maybe "destroyed" is just a good enough word.

I found some at Evergreen and some at Green-wood but too many of the names were generic. So not looking for anyone in particular but am still curious as to how many from the St. John's list were removed to Trinity -- I found a couple possibilities.

Gave up on it and moved on, but the project still feels it always will be of course.

Have fun!
