Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have developed a passion for knowing more about my ancestors. On my paternal side is a relatively recent immigrant network of South Italians, mostly from the city of Maschito, Potenza, Basilicata, Italy, who arrived in New York City in the late 1800s through the early 1900s. On my maternal side is a vast array of northern European descendents, some of whom apparently arrived at the time that New York was under the control of the Dutch.

The unexpected discovery of these, and even richer genealogical details, was not possible without the help of time/resource-generous online "friends", such as those found on Find A Grave. I hope that I can offer the same to others on this site as well.

RE: Contact info for Old Fir Meth Ch Cem
I don't think they have a listing, except for the one that was made visually by ??? a few years back. The listing is at (but not on-line unfortunately) as well as at the church itself. The listing was made in a white notebook and the maker refused to share with people on-line---I asked him personally. I doubt you'd ever get a contact at the church. I'd try the Freehold place by phone first, if I were you.

There are many graves there that have sunk into the ground and are currently not readable---and appear to have been "missing" for many years. I walked/photoed the entire visible cemetery for findagrave.

RE: Anna Barbano photo
So glad to hear that, Cathy - that's the joy of this! Always exciting to find one with multiple names. I assume you know about the NYC Vital Records Index, courtesy of the Italian Genealogical Society - but if not: - the actual documents are available in the NYC Municipal Archives, or by mail. Good luck!
