Missing Grave Plaque
Hi Jim,
In 2/6/2014 You took a picture and posted of Montgomery Goodman's grave in Waldheim Cemetery Gate 5, B'nai Ruven. The grave marker is the temporary metal frame with a paper information. The mother, Fern Ostrowsky paid for a plaque with his picture. Can you find out if the grave has the finished plaque? In realize that weather conditions may be adverse and I don't know your circumstances. His mother Fern lives clear out in Huntley and has health condition that keep her from going out there. Your most careful attention to this matter is appreciated. Thank you in advance. Cheri Reisman 714-998-2531

Memorials for Jakub and Katerina Silha
You took pictures for Vaclav Silha in Saint Adalbert's Cemetery, Niles, Illinois. I notice a couple of pictures would be applicable for these memorials, #'s 130333736 and 123962998. I would appreciate if you would upload or copy/paste for their memorials. You get credit for the pictures and saves someone the time of redo them. Thank you.

Thanks for the links--I can see why the book made such an impression on you when you were young. I am finding it fascinating--it's too bad every town didn't have someone as talented as her to compile such interesting histories. Or maybe most did, and we just don't have enough time to find them and read them.

The last number got left off for his mother--they should be right this time.

Viola was a second cousin of my great-grandfather, Joe Wright (his mother was Nancy Crouch). I doubt that he ever knew much about that part of the family, living as he did in central Ohio most of his life.

I would like that very much, thank you! The Sterns are my Dad's family and the Weinsteins my Mom's.

Waldheim Photos
Hi Jim,

I looked for Waldheim photos and all of the pictures that you posted are missing. Can you please tell me why?

Thank you,

Thank you!
Hi Jim,

I just wanted to thank you for the photographs of the Lefkovitz graves in Waldheim. I'd been there years ago and written down some info, but it was before digital photography when I was a kid, and I didn't have any record of the Hebrew inscription. I live on the east coast and don't get out to Chicago much! Let me know if you're looking for anyone in Eastern MA, I'd be happy to return the favor. Thank you again for your work, it is so thoughtful of you to do this and I really appreciate it!
