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.

Hans Bartell & Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery
I noticed that you had created a memorial for Hans Bartell, who is interred at the Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery. Are you a descendant of Hans? I'm also a descendant of a mariner who resided at Sailors' Snug Harbor and is interred at the SSH Cemetery. If you are interested in more information about the SSH Cemetery and where to find Hans' SSH Records, I can help you. You can contact me at the email address listed on my member name profile.

RE: Thomas Irving - 106289137
Thanks for letting me know the source was a death certificate. I will let the person requesting know they should contact the cemetery to see if Thomas Irving's remain are still at Green-Wood. I wouldn't be surprised to find he was moved elsewhere.

Thomas Irving - 106289137
You created a memorial for a Thomas Irving at The Green-Wood Cemetery. Someone has requested a photo of the grave, I've been unable to locate a Thomas Irving on the burial search at the cemetery or the online burial. What was your source for creating the memorial? Do you have a lot and section number for this interment?

Thank you.

Congratulations on your wedding! I submitted it. If you can do it, great. If not, I completely understand!

RE: John Clarke
Jim: It's been awhile since we last spoke. At one time you offered to fulfill a photo request for me for my great-grandparents in Calvary Cemetery but I was unable to provide more burial details.

Well, I have burial details for my great-grandmother (wife of John Clarke). Her name is Phillipine Clarke and her date of dath was 06/26/1962. I spoke with Calvary Cemetery and have the following plot info:

Section 8, Range 39, Plot I13 in 1st. Calvary.

I will submit a new request for her. I hope you are still able and willing to help.

Sincerely -
Matt Clarke

Toni Lorber grave stone
What a pleasant surprise this morning when I found the link to the Find A Grave photos for Toni Lorber. I have been looking for this gravestone for a number of years. Thank you for taking your time to photograph the stones for others. Wishing you all the best as you pursue your own research.
