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.

Moritz hertzfeld
Hello. I refer to your offer to try to obtain a photo for Moritz Hertzfeld at that Acacia Cemetery. I do not have grave location details and as I live in ENGLAND I may have difficulty contacting the cemetery office. But I thank you for your offer. Kind regards David Ibbotson

Acacia Cemetery - TOFFLER SIgmund
Thank you for offer to photograph. The office provided the following information:
After entering cemetery, proceed past square and continue straight. On Left is Maimonides Benevolent society. Enter gate and on right (men's section). Sigmund Toffler is buried in row 22.
I hope this helps!
Jane

Golda Wilansky
Thanks for your message. Golda Wilansky's grave is through gate 4 and in row G, grave 18, on the path between the Annie Frank mausoleum and the grave of Abraham Silberstein and should be closer to the fence. Your effort is greatly appreciated. Marc

Rose Robinson at Acacia
I'm so excited you're going to look for my great-grandmother's headstone. I just spoke to the woman at the Acacia office where I got the original information. She confirmed that Rose Robinson is buried at Gate 26, and said the plot is owned by the Young Friend's Society. She also said the microfilm info says Rose's grave is 3 graves from an Anna Cohen, although it doesn't say in which direction. She also said Gate 26 is closer to Pitkin Ave, and that this Sunday, Mother's Day, the Pitkin Ave gate will be open. If you call her a day or 2 before you go she will pull out the map and give you explicit directions.

The cemetery is open 8:30 to 4:00 Sun-Fri, and she emphasized they close promptly at 4:00. She said it's safest to call Mon-Thursday, as she's not always working on Fridays. Additionally, Rose died March 8, 1914, and was buried March 9. I don't believe there will be any other Robinsons close to Rose, but if you see any, or any Greenhouses/Greenhaus/Grunhouse close by (her maiden name), please do snap them also. Thank you so much! -Robin Schectman

Lottie (Zlotta) Applebaum-Silverman or Silberman & Samuel Kogut (Acacia Cemetery) Queens, New York
Hi,

Thank you so much for planning to go to Acacia Cemetery in Queens, New York. I have called this cemetery a couple of months ago on the locations of these graves. The lady at the office could not find the grave locations.She has has a few microfilms on the graves at this cemetery. The cemetery is a complete mess. I was told by the lady at the office that the original books are at a warehouse location not near the cemetery so their is no other help for the grave locations. This is also a problem at Bayside Cemetery and Mokom Sholom Cemetery which are next to each other.

Thanks for your note. After reviewing the request, I have decided that this person is not one that I wish to pursue.

I so much appreciate your time and effort. I will remove it from my request list.

Many thanks,
Janis
