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.

RE: Surname: Chicko
Not to my knowledge. Family Search has parents of both Rosina and Rosa on their NYC Municipal Death database. Rosina's were listed as Charles and Carmella "Chicks", I think, and Rose's were Joseph Chicko and Katherine Dowd.

Hope this helps in your Angel Babies project.

I believe is someone is kind enough to sponsor a grave, they are entitled to manage it. It's my small thank you for your sponsorship.
