Joseph Feinstein d. 1911
Dear Mr. Cohen:
I am so grateful that you posted a picture of Joseph Feinstein's gravestone and took the time to record his father's name from the other side. He was my husband's great-grandfather and we've been searching for more information. This is an enormous help and we are so grateful!

Jason Deutsch
I was wondering if you could please photograph the area at United Hebrew Cemetery where Jason Deutsch is buried. He has no marker and, unfortunately, I don't know the plot #. He was born 2/22/1943 & died 6/7/1992. Thank you. If this is not possible, please let me know. Again, thank you. Anita McKnight

Re United Hebrew Cemetery
Wondered if you are still photographing graves in
United Hebrew Cemetery. I would be grateful to have photo of grave my Great Grandmother LIBBY BUCHTER. She was buried there January 1946. I do not have a grave location. According to death cert. she died mysteriously by drowning and was found floating off coast of Brooklyn. I am hoping that the gravestone might yield additional genealogical information about her as there are no relatives living who can answer my questions.

Photo Request
Hi Lester
My name is Scott. I am a 21 y/o college student and amateur genealogist. I was wondering if you would be willing to do me a huge favor by taking pictures of the graves of two of my relatives. They are buried in United Hebrew Cemetery on SI.
Their names are Miriam and David Ross
They are buried in Block 4, Row 16, Graves 1 and 2.
I would really appreciate it if you could do this for me.
I submitted photo requests on

Barney Blum
Dear Lester,

On find a grave, you (or find a grave) have my Great-Great Uncle, Barney Blum as being buried at United Hebrew Cemetery. He is not buried there. He is buried at Baron Hirsch Cemetery 1126 Richmond Ave, SINY. He is in Public 15, Section G, Grave 62.

Is it possible to change the cemetery photo from United Hebrew to Baron Hirsch.

Any help you can give will be appreciated.

Email "out of office" / photo requests
Dear Lester,

I had placed a photo request earlier this evening for my Great-Grandfather and Grandmother, Hyman and Fannie Jalkow, who are laid to rest at United Hebrew Cemetery on Staten Island. Shortly after my email was sent, I received the following email from Find-A-Grave, which is as follows:

Out of Office: Find A Grave Photo Request: United Hebrew Cemetery "Rose M McClellan is no longer with the firm. If you have firm related business, please direct your inquiries to the employee's manager or Human Resources Department at (212) 558-3583. "

Can you please tell me if I need to resubmit my requests, and if so, how long I need to wait to do that, since the website says a request was already placed.

Many thanks for your time and assistance, and happy holidays to you and yours.

United hebrew cemeeary

I noticed you live on Staten Island and have taken pictures in United Hebrew cemetery. My grandfather Ralph Zolan is buried there and I pretty sure it is in the Petrokower section. Could you find his grave and take a picture of it. Also if possible could you see if there are other Zolan's as my dad thinks their was a family plot or others in the family buried there. His grandfather and mother were William and Rose Zolan. Other names Fannie and Joseph Kushinsky, Morris and Sonja Kolinsky and Samual and Bessie Fox. If you find them, tell me so I could make a memorial so you could add the pictures to them. It is possible Zolan could also be listed as Solan.
Thank you very much if you able to help.
