Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved the old cemeteries. My interest in genealogy has brought me back into the cemeteries to find my roots. I love helping others to discover their past and to honor and remember those that have come before us.

Currently I am working on photographing and transcribing the cemeteries of Queens Co. and Long Island, New York. I love learning about the interesting families that lived here and I am happy to help others when I can.

Nearly all of the information for the memorials I have entered is taken from photographs which I have personally taken. In the interest of getting as many people entered as possible, I have gotten behind in adding all my photos. If you see a memorial which I have entered and you would like a photo, please request the photo by clicking the "request a photo" tab on the memorial and then drop me a line to let me know that you have put in the request. I am not automatically notified when a photo request has been made on a memorial I have created.

I welcome all corrections. I try to be as accurate as I possibly can.

Albertsons cemetery in glen cove.
Hi dyane :) I am curious as to how you came across this and was wondering how the name came about. did you decide to call it albertsons cemetery? I currently live on this property along with a gentleman who was eleanor albertsons(daughter of mrs.martin jd albertson)long time companion. I was hoping maybe we could share info :)

Dear Dyane,
You already helped me in the past by taking a photo of a family member.
I would very much appreciate if you could take a photo of Sadie Hellman, died June 5th 1992,buried at Mount Hebron Cemetery, Flushing, New York. location 28-11-K-4-8. maybe the inscription on the head stone will help me in my search. I need to know her parents name.

thank you very much

RE: John Withrow
Hi Dyane,

It was my pleasure! I love genealogical research, and am in the process of transcribing all of St. Stephen's Anglican Church Cemetery. I also want to do St. Paul's Anglican Church Cemetery, in Centre Rawdon, if I get a chance this summer/fall. It's a big cemetery, but there are quite a number already on here, so hopefully it won't take me too long!

Erin :)

Charles R. Minor # 65598952
"An Index to the Long Islander 1839-1864" calls him Charles Robert and says he died at Cold Spring [now C. S. Harbor] - no parents listed but is called "Minor" - so no Hendrickson in the mix yet

Charles R. Minor
The Huntington Rural Cemetery Index book calls him "Miner" - not Hendrickson - and gives the burial date as 20 October 1857 and the "last residence" as Cold Spring [now C. S. Harbor]
