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.

|R.C.||Rural Cemetery (Rockland Co)|
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!

Hi, I see that Roy Wildrick has memorials for two cemeteries. One in Fairmount Cemetery in Warren County, and this one in Free Union Methodist Cemetery. What can you tell me about this - which one is his really buried in?
I found this out while looking for a burial site for a Carl Cochran in Fairmount. He is listed as being buried in the same one as Roy. The cemetery map has "Wildrick" listed on it. After researching, I believe Roy was also married to Carl's wife Helen Geis at one time.
Helen is supposed to be married there in Fairmount as well but I after checking an index, I do not see her listed but maybe that list is out of date.

|Alysia||Question abt. Francis Duffy|
I just finished photographing all of the stones in the St. John's Cemetery in Lansingburgh, NY. You have a memorial for a Francis A. Duffy, #53530276 in there. Do you happen to know if he would be the same person as Frank A. Duffy, #167228538, a memorial I created. The ages are a little off. The stone for Frank says he died aged 56 years. If they are the same I will delete the one I created. Thanks!

|Gen1982||RE: Correction for Minnie Slavin|
Yes, it's gate 11 on the left side of the road. If you look at Minnie's page on here, you'll be able to see all the linkages I've been able to do so far. They extend out of Acacia into Mt Hebron, and Mt Ararat and all the way to Los Angeles in one case.

|Gen1982||Correction for Minnie Slavin|
Acacia just called me again with a correction for the location of the Minnie Slavin (Irviing Slavin, and Jacquline Slavin). It is gate 11 on the left side of the road through. The grave is 7th on the right on the path, Irving is in grave 8. Jacqueline is in the rear children's section next to Max Mittleman.
Sorry for confusion. They are working off old microfilm.

|Gen1982||Acacia Cemetery -Minnie Slavin Request|
Sorry for the delay in response.
Graves descriptions are a little out of ordinary. No rows.
Glogower Society, Section 25
Minnie Slavin( died 1967), 3 graves East of Becky Levy.
Isidore (Irving) Slavin (died 1986), 4 graves East of Becky Levy ( 1 grave East of Minnie Slavin).
Jacqueline Slavin (died 1926) , next to Sylvia Gelb.
Best the office could get off the microfilm.

I just submitted an update for Beckie. Her real name was Rebecca and her maiden name was Kushelevitz. She was my great-grandfather's sister. Thank you!
